The untitled female Marvel superheroes television series, is an upcoming American cable television series created for ABC by Allan Heinberg, centering on female Marvel Comics characters. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The series is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television, with Heinberg serving as showrunner.
Development on a female-focused Marvel series at ABC began in 2016, and the company gave a production commitment to Heinberg's idea in September 2018.

Development[edit | edit source]
In May 2016, ABC president Channing Dungey said the company had "a handful of projects in development" with Marvel Television that the two studios thought would be "beneficial to both brands". Karim Zreik of Marvel Television said in August 2017 that one of these ideas was "female-skewed" and "Jessica Jones-esque". He noted that the success of the DC Comics-based film Wonder Woman (2017) had increased interest in comics among younger girls. By January 2018, Dungey said that the series had not "worked out as well as we would've liked. We developed a couple things this season that we don't think are going to end up going forward, so we're going to look really carefully about what we do next". In August, Dungey said "we're cooking up a couple things" in terms of potential new Marvel series on ABC, and that there was one idea in particular that she was excited to talk about.
In September 2018, ABC gave a production commitment to a series featuring lesser-known female superheroes from Marvel Comics. Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg, who had an overall deal at ABC Studios at the time, was set to write and executive produce the potential series, with Marvel Television president Jeph Loeb also executive producing. The idea had been a "strong contender from the get-go" in terms of the new series that Marvel and ABC had been developing together.
