Marvel TV: Developing

Comedy… So another show like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

At the Edinburgh TV Festival, Marvel Television's senior vp of original programming Karim Zreik talked about several things (shocker) live-action Marvel TV. Of course he covered September's Inhumans  TV show and Cloak and Dagger, but he also teased some future directions for his company.

One project is already in development with ABC. The show will be "female-focused" with Zreik describing it as "Jessica Jones-esque". You know, Marvel did have a "female-focused" show on ABC at one point…

Zreik also said that comedy is something the company wants to go to, citing the success of Guardians of the Galaxy:

"Comedy is something we really want to go into" … "It took us time to dip our foot in the comedy pool"


We're not sure what show he is referring to as he spoke as if it were a future project. Marvel has already announced New Warriors and Damage Control is reported to be in development (that team was seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming). Was he referring to those shows or something new?

Zreik also joked that they would "never do an office comedy".
