ABC Signature Studios is reportedly in early development for a series based on the 1990s youth hockey-themed film trilogy “The Mighty Ducks”. A network is not attached at this time.
Original trilogy screenwriter Steven Brill and original producer Jordan Kerner reportedly approached ABC Signature with the idea which was then put in development. Brill will pen the script in-house for ABC Signature.
Should it be approved it will then be packaged with talent and shopped to streamers this year. As it’s unclear if this is a reboot or a sequel series, it’s not certain if film star Emilio Estevez will be asked to reprise his role of attorney turned coach Gordon Bombay.
Brill, George Heller and Brad Petrigala will serve as executive producers should it go forward.
