about the show

Wonder Woman (based on the 1940’s comic strip created by Charles Moulton) actually took quite awhile to become a series.
In March 1974 Cathy Lee Crosby appeared (looking nothing like Wonder Woman as we know here) in a TV Movie, then the following year Lynda Carter starred in another TV Movie, this led to a short run series on ABC called The New Original Wonder Woman, this series retained the 1940’s setting with Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince) doing her best to defeat all manner of evils (mainly the Nazi’s in the ABC series).

In 1977 the show then moved to the CBS network and some major changes. The action had now moved to the present day although continuity had been maintained (Wonder Woman aged at a much slower rate than mere mortals) and she was working with Steve Trevor’s son Steve Trevor Jnr.
The duo worked for the Inter Agency Defense Command (IADC for short). The agency also had a super computer called IRA.
