The order has been put on hold and it may be due to ABC's upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. series - the extension of Marvel's superhero universe that is being spearheaded by Joss Whedon (The Avengers).
I hear there was concern, at Marvel and internally at ABC, that Weird Desk may be similar to Joss Whedon’s high-profile ABC pilot S.H.I.E.L.D., an offshoot of blockbuster vengers franchise. There is speculation about objections from Marvel, one of Disney Co.’s most prized possessions, to the new project.
ABC may revisit Weird Desk at another time.
