RUMOR: Marvel’s Agent Carter in development for ABC TV series?

September 19th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is set to debut next week but it looks like there may be more TV series on the way. According to Deadline they may be working on an Agent Carter series:

“After one such short, Item 47 on The Avenges DVD about the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., led to the new ABC/Marvel series, another one may also spawn a series project for ABC. Marvel is notoriously secretive about their development, and no one would comment, but I hear the company is working on a concept for a potential TV series inspired by Agent Carter, a one shot, which will be featured on the upcoming Blue ray release of Iron Man 3.

At this point in time it’s uncertain whether Hayley Atwell will reprise her role as Peggy Carter.

Deadline went on to say:

“A Marvel action series with a female lead would fit right into ABC’s wheelhouse of female-skewing dramas with a strong lead and would be a throwback to such network series as Alias.”

Iron Man 3, with the Agent Carter short, comes out on Tuesday September 24th. That is the same day that Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD debuts on TV as well.
