Wonder Woman has been doing phenomenally well, and completely deservedly so.
While the question of whether director Patty Jenkins will helm the planned sequel (fingers crossed!) or not remains up in the air, she is keeping herself busy and has a project lined up for the small screen next.
The six-episode drama series for TNT is written by author Sam Sheridan, who is also Jenkins’ husband. Jenkins will serve as director and exec produces. Chris Pine will make his live-action series regular debut in the drama and also exec produces.
The straight-to-series pickup is called One Day She'll Darken and was inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel. Given away by her teenage birth mother to a black restroom attendant in a Nevada casino in 1949, Hodel begins to investigate the secrets to her past. She follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel.
Pine, who stars in all six episodes, will play Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-hack reporter and paparazzo. Jay was disgraced over his story about Hodel years prior, but now he sees a glimmer of redemption. When Jay gets an opportunity, he finds that he is also caught in a moral quandary.
