CW president Mark Pedowitz recently talked to TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour about the Amazon TV show currently being talked about and developed at CW.
On the current development of the show: “First off, we’re waiting to see the script. Second off, we’re busy casting for Diana as we speak. Hopefully the script works the way we want.” He added that Amazon was, “an origination story in the sense that Smallville was an origination story.” – Mark Pedowitz
On what Arrow’s success has meant for the ‘Amazon’ tv show: “Arrow’s success, when you have Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg as your showrunners, that has a lot to do with that success and we hope Allan Heinberg will have the same success with what Amazon will be. But it does help, in terms of that.” – Mark Pedowitz
On whether ‘Amazon’ will include other DC characters like Arrow: “In terms of other DC characters, we will explore other DC characters, but we also do a lot of exploration of a lot of other material with a lot of other great producers.” – Mark Pedowitz
On whether ‘Amazon’ and ‘Arrow’ characters could appear on each others shows: “I think they all could exist in the same world, but whether they do or they don’t is depending on what the showrunner wants to do.” – Mark Pedowitz
On whether we will be waiting long for a pilot: “If we get the right script and the right casting, we’ll go right forward to pilot.” – Mark Pedowitz
