ABC Confident in Joss Whedon's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' Landing Series Order

THR Live Feed:
ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee expressed confidence in Joss Whedon's Marvel adaptation S.H.I.E.L.D. on Thursday at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour, telling reporters he's optimistic the superhero pilot will land a series order.

"We fast-tracked that and we'll see it a lot earlier than the others," Lee said of the Marvel TV effort starring Ming-Na. "We're very hopeful that's going to go to series. … It's a great script." (Joss Whedon, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Paul Lee, TV)

I have all the faith in the world in Joss Whedon's work. Whatever time slot that show gets...the other shows will just have to get recorded.

how could they turn it down?

i know, money and all that, but Avengers had like the second biggest ever box office take didn't it?

and with a Whedon project, even if the audience numbers aren't there for the tv showings, and combine Whedon and Marvel and they're almost guaranteed, but even if they don't, they'll get picked up on dvd or bluray in large numbers.

i can't wait for this, and phase two.

If ABC honestly turns it down, who wouldn't pick it up? Honestly why even pretend at this point lol

Disney owns ABC, Avengers, and makes the decision. whats there to 'think about"? What ABC passes on it and Disney puts it on the Disney Channel or ESPN? lol
