According to a Deadline report ABC has greenlit Marvel’s Joss Whedon live-action television project, ordering a pilot for the S.H.I.E.L.D. titled show.  S.H.I,E.L.D. stands for “Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division”.   The S.H.E.I.L.D. organization is most well known for recruiting The Avengers to take on an alien force threatening Earth.

The show will be written by Whedon along with his brother Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.  Joss Whedon will also direct the pilot if his schedule permits.

Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot will mark his return to network television in which he’s seen familiar territory with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse, and Angel.   Production on the pilot will begin immediately but there is no timetable for the show’s premiere.
