    Judging from this article...I would say that a Marvel Universe series is most likely the series JMS was referring to working on, not the SW series.

    Sad...it would've been a match made in heaven!

      Actually, somebody specifically asked if he had anything to do with the new SW series and he said he didn't.

      Sorry, I thought that'd been covered in one of the articles. I'm working on the transcript but it's slow.

        Thanks for posting the link.

        Looking forward to the transcript Jan, you are a star.

          So, any ideas?? All of Marvel's best properties are currently licensed for film.

          I'm thinking a SHEILD series, although a Nick Fury movie is in the works, so that could be off. JMS did have a Global Frequency series in the works, so it could be similar.

          Thor is the only one I can think of that is free, and has potential. There is also rumors of a Young Blade series, it could be that...

            Personally I was thinking something along the lines of a young group of mutants show, like young x-men or the Runaways. I mean they did try to do a young x-men show a while back, which never got picked up because the pilot wasn't the greatest, but now could be the perfect time for something like that. What network exec wouldn't salivate over the OC with superpowers???

            JMS also is writing Dream Police for Marvel, and they could've been very pleased with it and decided to take a chance.

            (EDIT: BTW, for those who didn't know about that young x-men show, it was called Generation X )

              Thing is, Dream Police is a one-shot that only came out yesterday. I can see Marvel being pleased but not enough to explore a TV series quite a long time before the issue came out.

              I've finished transcribing that part of the JMS Q&A which isn't much different than what appeared in Newsarama. I'll post it later on in case y'all can see any clues.

                As promised, here's the transcription of the part of the JMS Q&A at WW Philadelphia pertaining to the TV project he's working on:

                Q: Speaking of TV, youÆd mentioned once before that you were dealing with a show for 2006. Any word on that?

                JMS: IÆm developing a show currentlyàIÆm trying to decide whether I can say whoÆs involved with it or notà[Crowd: We wonÆt tell!] ItÆll never be on the æNet! I can feel laptops firing up from here. IÆve got the coolest thing, a laptop thatÆs got this PC card that goes into it that is a built-in cellular phone modem for DSL. I can go online in a cab at DSL speeds. ItÆs so great. End of commercial.

                Marvel Productions asked me to develop a show for them, a TV series, based on some of their characters. We just put out the budget together and the hope is that we can go into prep sometime in August or September. But thereÆs a long road between here and there. So if it doesnÆt happen, donÆt be disappointed but weÆre working on it currently. I always try and be careful in explaining these things because LA is a town where hope can kill you and I try not to get too excited about things but it could be a lot of fun. Beyond that I really canÆt say.

                  Maybe it's the Avengers. Or the Inhumans. Although, it could be an anthology series...
                  Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

                    Does anybody know if and licensed characters can or can't show up on tv? Because I was thinking Avengers too, but Captian America and Iron Man have films in the works and it would be hard to do an Avengers show without them.

                      I imagine it has to do what rights have been gotten for what. For instance, we learned from TMOS that JMS owns the movie rights for B5 but that WB still owns anything else. I would imagine that if Marvel owns all the rights to all it's characters, it can license different books, movies, TV shows, etc.

                        Don't forget Hulk.

                        And if I'm, not mistaken, Stan Lee pretty much owns anything he created in Marvel. I've always been more of a DC fan myself, but I don't think he created all of the members of the Avengers or the concept.

                          How about Doctor Strange?

                          It's about the only decent Marvel character not tied up in a movie deal, though I could be wrong about that. It could also explain why JMS called off further writing of the comic as he would want to save the stories for the tv show.

                          Nah...probably not.

                          I just hope its not a set of lousy second or third string characters.

                            I think Strange was always planned as just the 6 issue mini for now. From Wizard World:

                            Q: I enjoyed Strange a lot but IÆm a little confused about what Marvel plans to do with it. Was it just a retelling?

                            JMS: I think Marvel just wanted to see what was happening with Strange and theyÆll figure out what to do with it from there. They arenÆt sure yet themselves what to do with that.

                            Q: [asked if JMS would take on the title, I think]

                            JMS: Not at the moment, I have a full workload and canÆt take on anything else right now.
