After putting a halt on the “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” spin-off, which was proposed earlier this year, ABC is closing in on a deal to order a pilot for a project centred around Mockingbird.
Titled “Marvel’s Most Wanted”, the drama will focus on popular “SHIELD” characters Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi Morse (also known as Mockingbird) and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter, reported Variety.
The series, however, is not a spin-off, but an entirely new project solely focused on the two characters to continue their story.
Though plot details are scarce at this point, “Marvel’s Most Wanted” will follow the pair and their adventures together.
“SHIELD” producers Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski, who co-created the project for Marvel and ABC Studios, will serve as show-runners and exec producers together with Marvel’s head of television Jeph Loeb also executive producing.
