ABC S.H.I.E.L.D Series Pilot Being Co-written by Joss Whedon
This is so awesome! When I was growing up, a hot Friday night was watching The Incredible Hulk followed by The Dukes of Hazzard. It’s been a long time since a decent superhero show has been on television, and it looks like ABC is out to remedy that. Reports are coming in that The Avengers/Buffy/Firefly/Dr. Horrible/Angel director Joss Whedon is co-writing a pilot for new superhero TV series.
The series is said to be based in The Avengers universe and called S.H.I.E.L.D. The series is said to follow the secret military law enforcement group with Nick Fury at the helm.
Reports indicate that Joss and his brother Jed are writing the pilot for the show along with help from spouse Maurissa Tancharoen. Whedon might even direct the pilot for the series if his schedule allows. Production for the pilot is set to get underway as soon as possible. ABC is also said to be getting a new TV series based on The Hulk ready as well.
