Marvel Female Superheroes TV Series being Developed by ABC

A new superhero female-centric TV series is being developed for ABC by Allan Heinberg, the writer of Patty JenkinsWonder Woman. The series will apparently involve lesser known Marvel superheroes and teams like: A-Force, Lady Liberators, and Fearless Defenders.
