Speaking to journalists at the Television Critics Association’s winter tour, ABC’s Paul Lee said the network is hopeful Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. will receive a series order. Whedon is already working on additional scripts.
Hollyoaks actress Elizabeth Henstridge and The Fades star Iain De Caestecker will play bickering science and technology whiz kids in Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot. They join Clark Gregg and Ming-Na.
