"S.H.I.E.L.D." will begin filming January 2013, according to a website dedicated to TV auditions.

The listing for "S.H.I.E.L.D." has Joss Whedon listed as director -- he's been attached, but with the "schedule permitting" caveat -- and includes some very small plot teasers.

From Television Show Auditions:

Clark Gregg is playing Agent Phil Coulson, the same role he has played in "Iron Man I & II," "Thor," and "The Avengers". The series will center on his character. Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Ming-Na Wen has been cast as as Agent Melinda May, an ace pilot and weapons expert.

Whedon revealed Gregg's involvement at New York Comic-Con.

"We all love Clark Gregg, there's no doubt about that," Whedon told an audience via a taped message. "From before we made 'The Avengers,' we discussed whether there was a way for him to be a part of the Marvel Universe, perhaps a part of a TV show even after his death."

Ming-Na Wen's involvement was announced in late October
