The Hollywood Reporter writes that while the live-action series is still a long way from firing knucklepucks, screenwriter Steven Brill – who penned 1992's The Mighty Ducks and the sequels D2 and D3 – and producer Jordan Kerner have concocted a new story about the ragtag youth hockey team.
As there is not yet a script for the project, it's unclear if Emilio Estevez's Gordon Bombay or any
Bell Media’s The Movie Network Encore is to be rebranded next year, likely with Starz in the moniker although Bell Media did not get specific. The channel will also be made available as a standalone app for streaming.

The first is titled “Like Family” and follows Aubrey and Artie, who formed the tightest of sibling-like bonds growing up together in foster care.
