“The Shield” creator and prolific TV producer Shawn Ryan appeared at the ATX Television Festival on Saturday along with several other writers from the acclaimed but long-wrapped cop drama. The group offered a willingness to revisit the show’s leading character, Ryan telling the crowd:
“I have some ideas where Vic Mackey is, but I don’t know where Vic Mackey is until someone puts me in a writers room with a group of these people and some people that aren’t here and give us a week to sort it out…. Usually my first idea, instinct isn’t the right one so I have some thoughts. I’d love to hear their thoughts and I’d love someone to pay us to sit in a room.”
A “SHIELD” revival would continue the hot current trend of reviving major network shows for a limited season run – ala Fox’s “24”. However, those involved have commitments to other projects – Ryan to “Timeless” and Kurt Sutter to the “Sons of Anarchy” spin-off.
