The Mighty Ducks franchise from the early 1990s may be coming to the TV screen, as sources indicate that ABC Signature Studios is in early development for a series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The initial movies by Disney revolved around an ice hockey team, composed of young players that stick together throughout various challenges, and while feature film star Emilio Estevez is not currently attached as a script has not yet been written, it's still unclear if the potential Mighty Ducks TV series, headed by original trilogy screenwriter Steven Brill and original producer Jordan Kerne, will be a sequel or reboot for the half-hour or hour-long project that is being kept under wraps.
In addition, sources suggest that while a network is not yet attached and it's still in its early stages, ABC Signature could potentially take the project out to other broadcast or cable networks or shopping it to streaming platforms like Netflix.
ABC Signature Studios, the cable and streaming-focused branch of ABC Studios, declined to comment on the report so far, but stay tuned for updates.
