Disney theme park TV show in the works at ABC, ‘Agent Carter’ showrunners involved

in Disney, Movies & TV, Television

Disney has quite frequently been using their theme park properties to create fantastical films such as the ‘Tomorrowland‘ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘. Now it seems they have turned their eyes towards your TV screen with an hourlong drama based on ‘the Disney theme park mythology‘ being sold to the Disney-owned network ABC.

Not much is known yet about this mysterious project, but Deadline is reporting that ‘Agent Carter‘ showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters are involved and the project is currently going under the code name of ‘Hyperion‘. The ‘Hyperion‘ name comes from the studio Walt Disney created back in 1925 called ‘The Walt Disney Hyperion Studios.’

If this project takes off it will be exciting to see what kind stories this TV show will tell. Will we get a creation-of-the-Disney Parks type of story or maybe a more adventurous take on the parks like in the ‘Kingdom Keepers‘ book series by Ridley Pearson?

Whatever ABC has planned for this TV show I’m definitely am excited for it to reach my screen!

what kind of ‘Disney theme parks’ TV show would you like to see?

    One of the problems with Jon Favreau’s “Magic Kingdom” movie being an actual KK adaptation is that the book series was hampered from depicting specific Disney movie characters apart from the park-created ones, and the Disney movie cameos were exactly what Disney wanted.
    With Once Upon a Time’s versions of their movie characters, Disney’s figured out how a TV series can cross that line and not -actually- depict movie-icon images.
