Four new Marvel TV shows

Marvel TV only launched their first live-action series, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, and also have Agent
Carter in the the works. But now it seems that Marvel are not stopping there.

Deadline is reporting that Marvel are putting together four new live-action drama series and a miniseries that would be sold together to one outlet. The entire commitment is said to be for 60 episodes, which would be shopped to various company's, with Deadline naming Netflix, Amazon and WGN America as potential candidates.
Deadline says that feelers have been sent out and Marvel already are hearing back that there is interest, though this is all in the earliest stages of development, with little talent attached yet.

As Deadline notes, getting a 60-episode commitment right off the bat is highly unusual, but the Marvel brand would be a tempting for any company that needs to bulk up their catalogs with popular shows.

With the small screen comes smaller budgets, so any character that needs a lot of CGI may not work
where as characters with less visual powers like mind control or physical powers may make a more suitable choice.

What and who would you like to see on the small screen?
