TNT Developing Drama Based on Boxer, ‘Wonder Woman’ Actress Ann Wolfe (EXCLUSIVE)

TNT is developing a series inspired by the life of boxer and trainer Ann Wolfe, Variety has learned exclusively.

The potential series, currently titled “Beast Mode,” tells the story of a feisty, damaged woman with a “kill or be killed” mentality. While this quality makes her an excellent trainer, it tends to cause problems in the rest of her life.

Wolfe is an incredibly accomplished boxer, having compiled a professional record of 24-1 with 16 of those wins coming by way of knockout. She has also held championships in multiple boxing organizations in multiple weight classes. She is also a celebrated boxing trainer, whose students include former junior middleweight contender James Kirkland among many others. Wolfe made her acting debut in the megahit DC Entertainment film “Wonder Woman,” appearing as the Amazonian warrior Artemis.

David Schneiderman wrote the script for the project and will serve as executive producer. Macro will produce, with the company’s Charles D. King, Kim Roth, and Poppy Hanks executive producing. Stefanie Huie will also executive produce with Wolfe serving as producer.

Wolfe is repped by Lasher Group and, Felker, Toczek, Suddleson LLP. Schneiderman is repped by Verve and Allison Binder at Stone Genow.

Wolfe is not the only “Wonder Woman” alum to work with TNT. The network is currently developing “One Day She’ll Darken,” which will be executive produced by “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins and the film’s male lead Chris Pine, with Jenkins also attached to direct the first two episodes of the limited drama and with Pine attached to star. The series has received a six-episode order at TNT.
