Word has it that Marvel is shopping a content package of four drama series and a miniseries that totals 60 episodes.  Potential suitors include Netflix, Amazon and WGN America, with both digital platforms and traditional cable networks interested in working with the red-hot company.  Few details are available at the moment as the offering is in very early stages and there is currently little talent attached.  Whether it’s a new content provider looking to establish its platform with a host of Marvel programs or a successful network interested in including Marvel’s brand in their slate, this is likely to be a huge deal at the end of the day, especially considering the 60-episode commitment.  Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has already received a full season orderat ABC, and we know that Hayley Atwell is interested in Marvel’s Agent Carter series.  As Deadline reports, there’s no confirmation that the Carter series is part of the rumored package or if it’s been set aside for ABC.  Keep an eye out for future developments on this story.
