[TV] Marvel Shopping Huge TV Series Package to Networks

A multi-series package is being shopped to networks...
Marvel is getting ambitious with its cinematic universe. Deadline reports that the studio is shopping a 60-episode package of television to cable networks and VOD distributors that is said to include four dramas and a miniseries. These would of course be separate from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which ABC is already committed to and has received a full season pick-up.
This sort of commitment for several series and sixty episodes is unheard of, but Deadline claims that Marvel is looking to do something groundbreaking and that they could go with Netflix, Amazon or WGN America. It is not unreasonable to assume that this many series in one package would involve a lot of crossover.
