New Punisher Series Being Developed By FOX?

Variety is currently reporting that the beloved Marvbel character "Frank Castle" AKA Punisher is being developed over at FOX. It is reported that ABC (Apart of Disney, which owns Marvel) sold the television rights to FOX.

The Punisher is described as an hour-long procedural with a Marvel signature and
a new take on one of comic book giant’s iconic characters, Frank Castle, a
rising star detective with the NYC Police Department who moonlights as the
vigilante Punisher seeking justice for those the system has failed. Bernero will
executive produce along with Marvel. This marks the first
this season and the first one ever outside of ABC for Disney-owned Marvel, which
is developing TV series based on its properties through ABC Studios.
Now Marvel currently has at least two shows already in production at ABC, so this news doesn't shock me much...... IF it turns out to be true. But after three movies will television show the Punisher we deserve? You decide for yourselves in the comments.
