Palicki will play the title role in the NBC pilot from David E. Kelley and Warner Bros. TV. Kelley, who is also currently shepherding the Peacock’s “Harry’s Law,” wrote the pilot, which will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner. Kelley and Bill D’Elia are exec producers.

Lynda Carter played the crime-fighting superhero in the ABC series that ran from 1976-79.

Palicki starred on “Friday Night Lights” for three seasons as a Texas high school student with ambitions of going to college. The actress returned to the just concluded series for the final two episodes.

She also was cast in Fox’s “Lone Star,” which was a critical hit but a ratings disappointment after debuting in September. The skein was canceled after two episodes. On the feature film side, she’ll co-star in the upcoming pic “Red Dawn.”

Palicki is repped by UTA, Anonymous Content and attorney David Fox.
