There was once a superhero TV show reboot that simply didn’t make the cut, a show which could have led the way to the new television golden age of superheroic media franchises but simply fell flat with test audiences.
The show was called Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, starring Markie Post (of Night Court fame) and Anne Stedman, based on the old Sid & Marty Kroft show of the same name that aired in the mid-1970s.
The show was developed by a young exec at the WB, and because it was to air on the WB it actually took place in the DC Universe, predating the hit show Smallville which would premiere one year later.
So what happened to this reboot? Was it simply too cynical for audiences to enjoy? Is this show another example of TV and movie execs passing on a superhero show with female lead characters? Watch this unaired pilot and see for yourself.
