Disney’s ABC Signature Studios are currently developing a pilot for a new fantasy drama series “Epic”, that reinvents classic fairy tale characters for a new generation and it is being created by “Once Upon A Time” creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
Deadline is reporting that Eleanor Fanyinkahas been cast in the lead role, where she will play The Seer, a mysterious and playful figure who can lead you down the path of true love. Eleanor Fanyinkahas has previously starred in “Holby City” and “Sandman”.
“Once Upon A Time” co-writer Brigitte Hales, will be writing the script and will be an executive producer on the show along with Horowitz and Kitsis.
ABC Signature Studios is making several shows for Disney+ including the upcoming “The Mighty Ducks” and “The Big Shot”, so with many Disney franchises involved in this series, “Epic” could possibly be a Disney+ Original or at least head to the streaming platform after it airs on ABC in the US like “Once Upon A Time”.
