Re: Disney/Marvel & ABC working on Avengers spin-off tv show?
^ I don't think a SHIELD show has to have Fury in it. He could just be an ominous presence that's always mentioned but never shown as a "mysterious boss" type character. I think just having Coulson play the lead is enough. His character would be more than strong enough to lead the show in Fury's stead and probably do one even better.
