ABC Picks Up Marvel’s “Agent Carter” Straight to Series


ABC has officially green lit the Marvel series “Agent Carter.” The series is based on the Captain America one-shot on the Iron Man 3 DVD.

From showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, “Agent Carter” stars Captain America‘s Hayley Atwell and takes place a year after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. It follows Steve Rogers’ girlfriend Agent Carter (Atwell) as she builds her career as a secret agent while the hero is frozen in ice.

The story is set in 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life — Steve Rogers.

Steve McFeeley, Christopher Marcus and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb exec produce.

Inspired by the feature films Captain America: The First Avenger andCaptain America: The Winter Soldier, along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.
