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. “Epic” is being created by “Once Upon A Time” creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis.
According to Deadline, James Griffiths is joining the project to direct the pilot episode and will also become an executive producer on the show. He has previously directed the episodes of many ABC shows, including “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers”, “Grown-ish”, “Black-Ish,” “Stumptown”, and others.
“Epic” will star Eleanor Fanyinkahas and Brittany O’Grady.
The new ABC Signature Studios series is currently filming the pilot in Ireland.
With “Epic” featuring many well known fairytale characters, the series could possibly be a Disney+ Original such as “Big Shot” or “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” or at least head to the streaming platform after it airs on ABC in the US like “Once Upon A Time”. And internationally, it’s likely to be heading directly to Disney+ as a “Star Original”.
