A Wonder Girl TV series with a latina lead from Dailyn Rodriguez & Berlanti Productions is in the works at the CW.
The network is developing Wonder Girl, a drama series based on the DC characters created by Joëlle Jones. From executive producer/co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriguez and Berlanti Productions.
Written by Rodriguez, Wonder Girl centers on Yara Flor, a Latina Dreamer who was born of an Amazonian Warrior and a Brazilian River God and learns that she is Wonder Girl. With her newfound power she must fight the evil forces that would seek to destroy the world.
The series tells the backstory/origin story of the DC Comics character of Yara Flor, who was recently revealed as a new Wonder Woman. Yara will make her comic book appearance this January in Future State: Wonder Woman, part of DC’s Future State event written and drawn by Jones.
At the CW, Wonder Girl will be looking to join Berlanti Prods’ existing DC Universe, which includes Batwoman, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, the upcoming Superman and Lois, Supergirl — which will be wrapping its run with the upcoming sixth season — and Black Lightning.
Wonder Girl has enjoyed some small screen interpretations over the years first with Debra Winger on the iconic Wonder Woman television series and currently on HBO Max’s Titans where she is played by Conor Leslie.
