One Ticket to Paradise
Smallville was a decade-long WB/CW hit that gave us the story of Clark Kent's
high-school and college years.
Fox's current Gotham begins with Bruce Wayne as a boy in the aftermath of his parents' murder.
Yesterday came word that a series called Krypton is in development, focused on Superman's grandfather prior to the destruction of his home planet. Really!
Now, I'm pleased to announce my pitch for the groundbreaking television event Themiscyra, set on the uninhabited shoreline of what will one day be known as Paradise Island — thousands of years before the arrival of the Amazons.
In the tradition of the perennial ratings smash Yule Log, Themiscyra will deliver stunning video, week after week, of the spot on the beach where millennia later Queen Hippolyta will mold clay into the form of Diana, her daughter, known to the world
as Wonder Woman. Plans call for Themiscyra to feature gusts of wind that may well carry molecules of air or water eventually encountered by some of Diana's closest friends and greatest foes.
Themiscyra: How far are you willing to go?
