Once Upon A Time Creators Called On To Make New Fairytale Series “Epic”

Fans of the series “Once Upon A Time” have been waiting to learn more about what the series creators would be up to next and we now have more information about their new project “Epic”.


In 2019, it was revealed that the “Once Upon A Time” creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis were developing a new live-action “anthology” series called “Epic” which reinvents classic fairy tale characters for a new generation.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that ABC Signature has now ordered a pilot for the series, which will be focused on Disney properties.  The term “anthology” could indicate that the series could consist of different unrelated stories.


“Once Upon A Time” co-writer Brigitte Hales, will be writing the script and will be an executive producer on the show along with Horowitz and Kitsis.

This potential new series is part of a four-year overall deal that the duo has with Disney.  The pair also helped launch several successful shows for Disney including “Lost” and the upcoming “Beauty and the Beast” prequel series with Gaston and LeFou for Disney+.

ABC Signature is making several shows for Disney+ including “The Mighty Ducks” and “The Big Shot”, so with many Disney franchises involved in this series, “Epic” could possibly be a Disney+ Original or at least head to the streaming platform after it airs on ABC in the US like “Once Upon A Time”.

Are you excited to see what comes of this new series?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
