'Arrow' execs on 'Wonder Woman' TV series: 'There's room for both'

By
The producers of superhero drama Arrow have expressed their support for the new Wonder Woman TV series.

A show based on the DC Comics heroine is in development at The CW, the same network that will air Arrow from next month.

"There's the Adam West and Christopher Nolan versions of Batman and one doesn't obviate the other," Arrow exec Andrew Kreisberg told The Hollywood Reporter.

"The Lynda Carter version [of Wonder Woman] was great and now The CW is hopefully developing another wonderful version that will be a nice compliment to Arrow."

Fellow exec producer Marc Guggenheim added that he would like to see the two series share a night on The CW's schedule.

"I think there's totally room for both shows," he said. "It would be fun to share a night with them; the CW programmes two hours a night and that'd be a pretty kick-ass night of television.

"It harkens back to the years of my childhood where you had The Six Million Dollar Man and Wonder Woman and all these superhero-like genre shows all on the dial and all you had to do was change the channel."

Arrow premieres on Wednesday, October 10 at 8/7c on The CW. The series will air on Sky1 in the UK.
