NBC’s Wonder Woman TV pilot looks like it’s coming together, with some fresh casting news announced…

NBC continues to work on its pilot episode for its brand new Wonder Woman series, having already cast Adrianne Palicki, from Friday Night Lights, in the title role. However, we've now learned who she'll be facing off against in said pilot. And the villain of the piece, as revealed by the actress herself over Twitter, will be Elizabeth Hurley.

The pilot is being put together by David E Kelley, and Hurley's role is said to be a guest one, rather than a recurring part. She'll be playing Veronica Cale, a head of a big pharmaceutical company, who's just a little bit envious of Wonder Woman.

Deadline, incidentally, also reports that Tracie Thoms has joined the project, in a recurring role as Etta.
