The British actress/model recently tweeted about her involvement in the not-too-anticipated TV series which follows the DC heroine's re-imagined life in the City of Angels.
No other details were revealed except for what the Bedazzled star wrote via her Twitter account, which read,
"Thrilled to be doing the NBC pilot Wonder Woman. I'll be playing the evil villain. Can't wait."
Hurley is credited for her role in Mike Myers' Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, as well as co-starring in Serving Sara alongside Matthew Perry.
The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman – a/k/a Diana Prince – 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.
It was announced a few weeks back that Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights,” “Red Dawn”) will star in the title role of “Wonder Woman." Kelley and Bill D’Elia (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”) are the executive producers. The pilot was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner (NBC’s “The Event”). “Wonder Woman” is from David E Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
