Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D....this fall on ABC

Josh Whedon is involved. I'm in!



http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/liv...-agents-520903



It's official: Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is on the air at ABC.
The Joss Whedon drama based on the Marvel Comics property has landed a series order at the Disney-owned network, ABC announced Friday.

The ABC Studios project is based on Marvel Comics' secret intelligence organization that has appeared in countless titles, including Iron Man, Captain America and The Ultimates, since being introduced in the 1960s. The military law-enforcement agency's moniker stands for Strategic Hazard Intervention Espionage Logistic Directorate, which also has evolved over time in the comics.

Whedon is on board to co-pen the pilot alongside his brother Jed Whedon and Jed's wife, Maurissa Tancharoen; the trio previously teamed on the three-part web series Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Avengers and Buffy the Vampire Slayer mastermind Whedon directed the pilot, which has had ABC social media accounts for months. S.H.I.E.L.D. is executive produced by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb.

ER's Ming-Na stars as Agent Melinda May, The Avengers' Clark Gregg reprises his role as Agent Phil Coulson, Killing Lincoln's Brett Dalton is set as gruff rising star Agent Grant Ward, Elizabeth Henstridge as science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons and Iain DeCaestecker as tech guru Agent Leo Fitz, with Nashville's Chloe Bennet set as Skye, a superhero-obsessed woman.
Since the project was first announced in August, it has been a clear front-runner to land on ABC's 2013-14 schedule. ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee told reporters in January that the project was being fast-tracked and he was "very hopeful" that the entry with a "great script" would go

"Marvel has the ability to bring the whole family around it," Lee said at the time. "Joss has great relationships around it. There's a lot of real funny male-female relationships and flirtations, but it's also Joss and Marvel, so there's a lot of action to it."

"My boss Bob Iger buys Marvel, and how wonderful is it for ABC to be able to use the core talent from that and not use the Marvel brand but the Avengers franchise for a show that is not exactly about the Avengers but is attached to it?" Lee said, noting that Whedon was already working on scripts at the time.

ABC will start a major marketing push for the high-profile project with a sizable built-in fan base Sunday, May 12, airing a first look at 8 p.m. ahead of the season finale of Once Upon a Time.

No, just the pilot. He's listed as "Executive Producer" which is pretty much a title in name only for him, other than revenue participation and the occasional script/direction review.

He's busy working on Avengers 2.

I don't know if I agree with this. I think NCIS has appeal across all age groups to be that popular. Plus to me what doesn't make sense is that most of the true/long time Marvel fans are probably in the 50 and over crowd wouldn't you think?

It sounds like he may be intending to stay more involved with shield than any of us expected, to the point of putting other projects on hold:

[My version] is no darker than any other vision, in certain respects. If everything works out according to plan, S.H.I.E.L.D. will be on when the movie is over and then Iíll already be too busy.

WHEDON: It would be [Dr. Horribleís] evolution, where he is now. What it was like for him on the bottom, what itís like for him on the top. We got a bunch of stuff written, and God knows the actors are willing. But I stupidly decided to make a TV show.

Well, he's contractually obligated to run the show now, for as long as it lasts.

I've been a Marvel fan my whole life and I didn't love it. I felt like it was pretty hokey. Especially the end when everyone was looking at each other in an approving manner. That was bad.

ABC’s mission to translate Marvel’s theatrical success to the small screen is off to a rousing start.

Tuesday night’s premiere of “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” drew strong ratings in key demos and 11.9 million viewers overall despite airing opposite some of the toughest series competition any recent new show has had to endure. In fact, it was up against the most popular series on both CBS and NBC.

In the same 8 p.m. hour last night, CBS’ “NCIS” drew a whopping 19.5 million and NBC’s “The Voice,” which won’t be airing in the hour on a regular basis, attracted 12.7 million. ABC, CBS and NBC combined for 44.1 million viewers from 8 to 9.

“SHIELD,” starring Clark Gregg as the agent character he played in the 2012 film “Marvel’s The Avengers,” tied with “The Voice” as Tuesday’s No. 1 series in the adults 18-49 demo (4.6 rating). Head-to-head, “SHIELD” beat “Voice” in the demo, 4.6/14 to 4.0/12.

The 4.6 rating makes “SHIELD” the top drama premiere on any network since ABC’s “V” in November 2009 — and the best for any 8 p.m. drama since “Lost” in 2004.

ABC was able to bring men to the network, with roughly 58% of the 18-49 audience for “SHIELD” coming from guys. Compare this to last season’s averages for its returning dramas: “Grey’s Anatomy” (24%), “Scandal” (26%), “Revenge” (30%), “Once Upon a Time” (33%) and “Castle” (36%).

Except for those that suck right out of the gate.



ABC's Lucky 7 only pulled in 4 million viewers. It's probably safe to say it won't be around in three weeks, unless ABC doesn't have anything else to put in its timeslot.

Those occasionally recover, both in quality and ratings.

And then there are the good shows that are marketed badly and never find an audience.

NBC has won the opening two nights of the season in 18-49 for the first time in 25 years. It’s up about 25% in 18-49 and more than 40% in total viewers.

I'm actually surprised at the ratings of SHIELD. They're roughly the same as Sleepy Hollow and I expected them to be much, much higher, given the built-in audience.
