While it may seem like a no-brainer to most of us, ABC still hasn’t given a series order to the Joss Whedon S.H.I.E.L.D. series.
Seems that ABC president Paul Lee says that while the network is enthusiastic about the project, he wants to see a pilot before he makes a final decision.
“We haven’t yet seen the pilot. We fast-tracked that one before the others; we’ll get to see it a lot earlier than the others. We’re very hopeful that’s going to go forward to series. We’ll build our marketing campaign early for it … By the way, the script’s great. I don’t want to jinx it, but I’m very excited about it,” he tells TV Line. “[Joss] is very engaged with the series if we go to series. He’s already working on scripts. We shot it in Los Angeles to make sure he’s free to work across his feature life and 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.”
