They're remaking OUAT! :lol:

Quote:
Disney-owned ABC has put in development Epic, a romantic anthology series from former Once Upon a Time writer Brigette Hales, series’ creators/executive producers/showrunners Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz, their Kitsis & Horowitz Productions and ABC Signature Studios.

Epic is a romantic anthology series set in the fairytale universe of Disney. Taking place in a Disney-like Enchanted Forest, it will center on a whole new set of new heroes, villains, princes, princesses and all manner of magical beings. While it will pay homage to the classic signposts we’re all familiar with from the stories we grew up with, Epic will endeavor to create a whole new batch of characters as it explores love in all its forms.

Kitsis and Horowitz conceived Epic with Hales, their protégé on both Once Upon A Time and Amazing Stories. Hales joined Once Upon a Time in season 5 as a writer, working closely with Kitsis and Horowitz. Hales is writing, with Kitsis and Horowitz supervising and helping shepherd the project through the development process through Kitsis & Horowitz Prods. The trio executive produce. ABC Signature Studios, part of Disney TV Studios, is the studio.

It doesn't sound like this is a OUAT spinoff, but honestly it sounds pretty similar to the original show just with more of a focus on characters not from the Disney films.

I'd rather have a OUAT spin-off, in all honesty. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was surprisingly decent.

I'm not gonna waste my time on Kitsis and Horowitz again. Good luck to anyone who's interested.

Thanks, we're going to need it! :lol: If the show actually makes it on air and isn't canned mid-development, I'm going to watch because of the Disney connections. Not because I have faith in their storytelling capabilities.

Guess this is meant to replace the one based on those YA novels that got canned(probably b/c it was too dark.)

I loved OUAT in Wonderland. I was super sad that they cancelled the show. And it didn't help that the main OUAT show practically ignored and retconned it all.

Lol, I don't blame you. Not sure myself if I'll take the plunge or not. I guess it depends on which new characters they are using.

I'll give it a look. Somehow I don't expect it to last longer than a season or two at most. The thing is, they're usually good at creating a base. It's fulfilling their storylines that is the real problem. That's why OUAT was best when they were doing 10-episode mini-arcs. Any longer than that, and it really, really goes off the rails. Hopefully it'll be better off with Hales in charge.

Since this is an anthology, maybe that won't be a problem.

The project has gone to pilot. Let's see if it manages to get a series order.

Quote:
Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are back in business at ABC. The broadcast network has handed out pilot orders to two dramas, including anthology Epic from the Once Upon a Time creators. Epic is described as a romantic anthology that reinvents fairy tales for a new audience. Sources say it will be focused on Disney properties as their former ABC drama explored Snow White and other iconic characters.

Brigitte Hales, who worked with Kitsis and Horowitz on Once Upon a Time and their Apple Amazing Stories anthology, will write the script and exec produce alongside the duo. The drama hails from ABC Signature, where Kitsis and Horowitz have been under a longtime overall deal. The duo inked a four-year renewal back in 2018 that at the time was believed to have made Kitsis and Horowitz the highest-paid drama producers at the studio following Shonda Rhimes' move to Netflix.

Well, since they'll probably avoid Snow White and B&TB for the main story since they already did that with OUAT (and Alice with that spin-off show), I wonder what stories might get the most focus here? Maybe Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, or Cinderella? OUAT's version of SB was mostly horrible... Maleficent, in particular, was really awful. Aurora and Phillip were better, but only ever background fodder. You don't think they might make a Snow Queen character inspired by Elsa one of the main characters this time? :P
