According to Deadline, Marvel have been "quietly putting together a package of four drama series and a miniseries ? a total of some 60 episodes ? that would be taken out to the VOD and cable space, with Netflix, Amazon and WGN America rumored as potential candidates." Apparently they are in the very early stages, but there is already interest from digital platforms and traditional cable networks. What could they be? Well it seems that the secrecy levels have been taken to another level on this one as the site was unable to discover any details, with the nondisclosure agreements in full effect. They say it's not clear if the recently announced Agent Carter series will be included in this package, but assuming it is, what could the other shows be? Heroes For Hire? Cloak And Dagger maybe?

Marvel Preps 60-Episode Package Of Four Series & A Mini For VOD & Cable Networks

EXCLUSIVE: The notorious secrecy that surrounds Marvels projects has been heightened to the nth degree for this one. No one would breathe a word, with rumors that everyone from top to bottom is bound by strict nondisclosure agreements, but I hear that Marvel is quietly putting together a package of four drama series and a miniseries a total of some 60 episodes that would be taken out to the VOD and cable space, with Netflix, Amazon and WGN America rumored as potential candidates. Feelers had been sent out, and I hear theres already interest from digital platforms and traditional cable networks in the package, which I hear is in very early stages with very little talent attached. Reps for Marvel refused any comment. The company has been so adamant about keeping its projects under wraps that ABC topper Paul Lee joked at TCA in August that critics who wanted to attend a screening of the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot the only one in ages to not be distributed in advance could expect to be asked to submit a sample of your grandmothers urine or the Marvel guys wont let you in.

In addition to S.H.I.E.L.D., which was just given a full-season order, as we first reported, Marvel is developing a potential TV series inspired by Agent Carter, a one shot featured on the Blu-ray release of Iron Man 3. It is unclear whether that project is being earmarked for ABC or would be part of the VOD/cable package. Committing to 60 episodes off the bat is a big undertaking for a network/digital service but would make sense for outlets new to scripted programming that are looking to quickly build up a slate and want to capitalize on the Marvel brand.

I'd love to see a series about the Punisher. Cloak and Dagger could be nice too.
