Yes, Lois Lane is putting on the Wonder Woman costume (specifically the one from “Harry’s Law” EP David E. Kelley‘s failed NBC pilot). Durance plays Annie, a delusional vigilante who genuinely believes she is Wonder Woman, as she seeks revenge on domestic violence offenders. When she needs a lawyer (for good reason), she turns to Adam (Nate Corddry), an old friend, for help.
“I have to say I feel incredibly lucky to play Lois Lane for seven years and then jump right into this character of Annie-slash-Wonder Woman,” Durance says in this first-look EPK. And yes — she’s putting on the outfit. “I knew it was David E. Kelly, so I thought, okay he’s a going to figure out a really interesting way to make this happen and bring this into a legal drama.”
“Listen, this is one of the perks of the job,” Corddry jokes. “I get to come to work, and I get to see Erica Durance in a Wonder Woman outfit. So it’s hard for me to ever complain.”
“Just to be a part of something that is so many creative geniuses is such a pleasure,” Durance adds.
