The executive revealed that the pilot script is "great," with "a lot of action" and several humorous male-female relationships. While he didn't reveal exactly when production will begin, Paul Lee said that Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. is in a position to be ready, "a lot earlier than others." He also expects this to be a show that parents can watch with their children, much like the network's current hit Once Upon a Time.
Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Ming-Na (Agent Melinda May), Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Gemma Simmons), Iain De Caestecker (Agent Leo Fitz), and Brett Dalton (Agent Grant Ward), and Chloe Bennet (Skye).
