Jenkins’ husband Sam Sheridan has written the series.
Pine’s character is Jay Singletary, a former Marine-turned-reporter who is looking for redemption after previously writing about Hodel.
A release date for the sequel to “Wonder Woman” has just been announced, but Jenkins’ involvement as director has yet to be confirmed.
