Agent Carter to captain her own TV series!

Agent Carter to captain her own TV series!

The short film that preceded ”Iron Man 3” was so well received by fans Disney/Marvel have appointed showrunners (Reaper creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas) to create a TV drama.

The show, ”Agent Carter”, takes place a year after the events of the short film, and shows the titular agent (Hayley Atwell) on her rise through the ranks of post-war era SHIELD, her love interest Captain America (Chris Evans) still frozen in Arctic ice.

A pilot script has been submitted that ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee talked up during the Television Critics Association’s confab yesterday, saying it ‘certainly has a good chance to be on the network.’

Being a Disney/Marvel property, the show will appear on Disney-owned TV network ABC.

The original short premiered before 2012’s Iron Man 3 and was a big hit with fans. Like the best work of Pixar’s pre-film short movies, Agent Carter was an effects-light story of just a couple of minutes that showed Carter (Atwell) sneak off to complete a dangerous mission to prove her mettle, her male supervisor and co-workers seeing her as little more than a secretary.

It expanded and further solidified the Marvel universe, a smart move by Disney while thirst for superhero properties is high, and Agent Carter would join Agents of SHIELD as the second major Marvel TV project.
