ABC orders S.H.I.E.L.D pilot
Looks like S.H.I.E.L.D is joining the Whedonverse gang.
According the EW.com, ABC has ordered a pilot from Marvel TV that will have Joss Whedon as an executive producer. The series will be set in the same universe as Whedon’s blockbuster movie ‘The Avengers‘ and will follow the law enforcement organization that is lead by Nick Fury. The script is to be written by Whedon himself, along with his brother Jed and Maurissa Tancharoen. There are rumors that Joss may direct as well.
Production plans for the pilot are expected to begin as soon as possible.
Personally, I am very excited for this news. It’ll be nice to have a Whedon show in a network that will actually give it a chance for a change. Naturally, my mind goes to all of the possible guest spots from Whedon alums. Perhaps we’ll see some familiar faces?
