Marvel Creates Small-Screen Division
Marvel is going into television, it seems. The company, newly-owned by Disney, has created a TV division, which will be overseen by TV writer Jeff Loeb. According to the recent Hollywood Reporter article,
Loeb, who most recently worked as a co-exec producer of NBC’s “Heroes,” will oversee the translation of Marvel’s popular characters and stories to the television medium, in both live-action and animation formats. Loeb will also oversee the development and distribution of live-action, animated and direct-to-DVD series.
Alongside Loeb will be Dan Buckly, who currently oversees the Print, Animation, and Digital Division of Marvel.
Loeb’s credentials include comic writing for both DC and Marvel comics, winning Eisners for “Batman: The Long Halloween” and “Batman/The Spirit,” producing and writing for “Lost” and “Smallville,” and acting as executive producer on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Animated Series.”
