Allen Heinberg, writer of Wonder Woman, is set to develop a female-driven Marvel drama at ABC. The Disney-owned network has handed out production commitment to the top-secret project, Deadline reported. True to Marvel style, details about the premise are being kept under wraps, though it is expected to shine light on lesser-known characters in the comic book giant's library.
Heiberg has earlier served as showrunner on ABC's The Catch.
He will also executive produce alongside Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb.

Currently, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD will return in next year for an abbreviated 13-episode order. It is unclear if this would be the show's final season.
ABC previously aired Agent Carter and Inhumans, from the MCU, which have both been cancelled.
It was announced Wednesday that popular Marvel comics character Loki and Scarlett Witch are all set to get stand-alone TV shows that will air on Disney's new streaming video service, set to launch in 2019.
