The entertainment president at ABC, Paul Lee, has given an update on the progress of Marvel’s S.H.I.E.L.D TV series.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association, Lee said the script for the show was “great” with a “lot of funnymale/female relationships” as well as “a lot of action”.
He continued: “You know how Joss [Whedon] is so high/low? How he’s able to be intense and epic and suddenly funny/silly? He’s got that ability to be super-entertaining.”
Whedon is currently directing the pilot for S.H.I.E.L.D. from a script that he co-wrote with his brother Jed and Maurissa Tancharoen.
The show will see Clark Gregg reprise his role of Agent Coulson. He’s joined by Brett Dalton as Agent Grant Ward, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Gemma Simmons, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, and Chloe Bennet as Skye.
