ABC Working on ‘Agent Carter’ Series

Marvel has confirmed that they are working on an Agent Carter TV series that would see Hayley Atwell reprising her role as Peggy Carter and is inspired by the Agent Carter one-shot that appeared on the Blu-ray release of Iron Man 3.

It will see the return of Captain America’s love interest Peggy Carter as she deals with life as a secret agent after Captain America is frozen in ice. ABC president Paul Lee has seen the script and loves it. He confirmed that Reaper creators Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters are involved.

The pilot was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who wrote Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Lee didn’t say he had ordered a pilot yet but did note that the show “has a great chance of showing up on the network.”
