News is that Jeffrey Reiner, director and producer on NBC’s The Event, is closing in on the director’s gig for the peacock’s Wonder Woman reboot.
This leaves us with two questions:
2. Does this provide a clue on how optimistic the powers that be are over the upcoming Event episodes? I ask, because in the most recent deleted scenes video, Reiner seemed fairly resigned to the likelihood that there wouldn’t be any further flashbacks in the series. If the producers were planning beyond this season, I’d think the show would very much look to incorporate more flashbacks. (though far more effectively, one would hope).
At the end of the day it will depend on live ratings. If enough people tune in the show will survive. But you sometimes get revealing messages from movements like this (though it’s likely that Reiner will see out his duties on this season of The Event as Wonder Woman is in its very early stages). Remember when David Goyer left his role as executive producer of FlashForward a little over a year ago?
Don’t freak-out yet Event fans, movements like this happen all the time, but the show’s future rests on the returning clutch of episodes from March 7th.
