Move over Lynda Carter; there's a new Amazon in town.

NBC has tapped Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki, 27, to play Wonder Woman in an upcoming television pilot about the DC Comics heroine. 

But Warner Bros. Television says that this version of Diana Prince, penned by Boston Legal scribe David E. Kelly, will be markedly different than the campy 1970s TV hit.  

"The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life," the company said in a statement.
