Report: 'Mighty Ducks' TV series in early development

A television series based on the "The Mighty Ducks" franchise is reportedly in the works.

ABC Signature Studios put the project in early development after being approached by the screenwriter and producer of the original trilogy, Steven Brill and Jordan Kerner, according to Lesley Goldberg of The Hollywood Reporter. Brill will reportedly write the script in-house for ABC Signature, and if it's well received, it will be shopped to cable networks and streaming platforms later this year.

Goldberg notes that it's unclear whether the series would be a sequel or a reboot.

Released in 1992, "The Mighty Ducks" grossed $50.7 million domestically at the box office and spawned two sequels - 1994's "D2: The Mighty Ducks" and 1996's "D3: The Mighty Ducks" - along with a 26-episode animated TV series that originally aired on ABC.
