Variety reports that ABC is "closing in on a deal" to greenlight a spin-off to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. centered on Bobbi Morse/Mockingbird (played by Adrianne Palicki) and her ex-husband Nick Blood (played by Lance Hunter). Reportedly titled Marvel's Most Wanted, the series would be headed up by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. producers Jeff Bell and Paul Zbyszewski, who would serve as series creators, pilot writers, showrunners and exectuve producers.

Reports of this spinoff came out as early as April, but ABC passed on the potential show as a Fall 2015 property.

If Marvel's Most Wanted does get a deal, it would be the eighth live-action series Marvel has in the works, after fellow ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, along with the five shows at Netflix. A ninth show, said to be created by American Crime creator John Ridley, is also reportedly in the works.
