Though details are sparse, it's just been announced that ABC has given a production commitment to a series executive produced by Allan Heinberg, that will feature an all-female team of Marvel superheroes.
Multiple sources are reporting that there's a new hour-long Marvel series in the works at ABC from Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg, and it's expected to focus on an all-female team of heroes.
This follows last night's news that the Disney streaming service will feature several new limited series based on characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Loki and Scarlet Witch. Clearly, that hasn't had much of an impact on ABC's current partnership with Marvel Television.
No word on which heroes the show will focus on just yet, but they are expected to be "lesser known characters." We're not even sure if it'll be an established team such as A-Force or Lady Liberators, or the plan is to create an all-new roster just for the series.
Heinberg will executive produce along with Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb, with Marvel TV and ABC Studios producing.
