ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee has been talking about the status of the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show, revealing that Joss Whedon has gone beyond writing for just the series pilot.
“He’s already working on the scripts for the series,” reveals Lee. “We shot it in Los Angeles to make sure that he is free to work across his feature life and his television life, but I love to see Joss who of course has made many great television shows in his day, enjoying television as much as movies. That’s flattering for us.
“The truth about Joss is he has some great relationships in it so there are a lot of really funny male/female relationships that go through it,” continues Lee. “But it’s also Joss too and there’s a lot of action.
“I talk about the emotion of the network, that it’s smart with heart. There is something which I talk less about, that’s very real about this network, is we have more co-viewed shows. Absolutely Marvel has the ability to bring the whole family around it.”
Sounds as though Whedon has tapped into that magic combo of action, humour and loveable characters once more. Now how long do we think it will be before he starts killing them off…
