Penned by former Once Upon a Time writer Brigitte Hales, Epic is described by our sister site Deadline as “a romantic anthology series set in the fairytale universe of Disney… taking place in a Disney-like Enchanted Forest.”
But whereas OUAT took well-known Disney heroes and villains such as Snow White, the Evil Queen and Rumplestiltskin (wow, haven’t typed that name in a while!) and typically gave them a fun twist, TVLine hears that Epic presents “all-new characters” and “new spins on the classic archetypes,” and is not set in the OUAT universe.
Hales, whose writing credits also include Hulu’s 11.22.63, will executive-produce Epic alongside Kitsis and Horowitz, with ABC Signature Studios serving as the studio.
After wrapping Once Upon a Time‘s #SixSeasonsAndARequel run, Kitsis and Horowitz signed on to helm the upcoming Amazing Stories reboot for Apple TV+, on which they serve as co-showrunners.
Are you interested in heading back to a Enchanted Forest, to explore original fairtyale heroes and villains?
