Marvel.com's synopsis for Agent Carter


"Marvel's Agent Carter," starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 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. Inspired by the feature films "Captain America: The First Avenger" and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, "Marvel's Agent Carter" is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D'Esposito, Jeph Loeb.

The best part of this announcement is that she's running missions for Howard Stark. Hopefully this means we'll see him around quite a bit. I love Dominic Cooper's performance as Howard. Also, interesting to note that Kevin Feige is an EP for this show (he's not listed as such on Agents of SHIELD), while both have Jeph Loeb.

I'm hoping that the first season either leads up to the badass one-shot of hers, or starts off from it towards her and Howard founding SHIELD. From the one shot, it seems that "SHIELD" is already there, but Carter was also one of the founders so I'm a little confused about that. I'm also keeping my fingers crossed that Bradley Whitford makes an appearance (or even becomes a regular) as Agent Flynn, now that his current show has been cancelled.
