ABC has made the decision not to move forward with a drama project that had a big pilot procuction commitment at the network. Deadline reports that the network won’t be going ahead with a pilot for its female-focused Marvel superhero project from “Wonder Woman” writer Allan Heinberg.
“It is unclear whether the untitled hourlong drama from Heinberg, Marvel Television and ABC Studios will be redeveloped,” Deadline notes, adding: “In typical Marvel fashion, details about the drama were kept close to the vest, but it is believed to be based on lesser-known Marvel characters.”
The report adds: “Launching a new Marvel series had been a priority for ABC. There is a little less pressure as current series ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ was recently renewed for Season 7. Still, ABC wants to stay in the Marvel business.”
