NEW YORK (CBS) "Wonder Woman" is making a return to the small screen.

The classic TV series based on the DC Comics superhero is reportedly getting a modern-day reboot, according to published reports.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Television is developing a new spin on the iconic heroine, and has lassoed an unlikely talent to potentially write and produce the superhero project: David E. Kelley, the showrunner behind legal dramas such as "Ally McBeal," "Boston Legal" and "The Practice."

The news comes after nearly a decade of attempts by Warner Bros. and producer Joel Silver to launch a big-screen version of the franchise. Actresses ranging from Angelina Jolie to Beyonce Knowles to Megan Fox have thrown their hat in the ring for the starring role at one time or another.

In 2005, Warner Bros. announced Joss Whedon would write and direct the film adaptation. But Whedon said he never ended up being able to finish the draft, and two years later left the project. He's now back in the superhero world, however, prepping "The Avengers" for a winter shoot.
