Here is Marvel’s Official Synopsis:
Come January 2015 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. mid season’s filler Marvel’s Agent Carter finally hits the air and we now finally get a real preview of what’s to come. For those not in the know, Agent Peggy Carter was first featured in the film, Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) as the Cap’s love interest. She was then featured as a Marvel One-Shot DVD extra on Iron Man 3 (2012). The buzz it generated was so great that Marvel green-lit the eight-episode miniseries. The first look takes place in post-World War II America after the events of the first Captain America film.
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” comes to ABC in 2015 and we’ve got the official synopsis for you right here at Marvel.com! Read more about what you’ll see in the series, the cast and crew involved, and be on the lookout for the series debut in 2015.
ABC presents its second action packed series from the creative minds at Marvel in “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” inspired by the feature films Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger” and Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”
Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren’t recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.
It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy 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 finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field; putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.
When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy – the only person he can trust – to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy, “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. But Jarvis, who is a creature of habit and sticks to a rigid daily routine, is going to have to make some major life changes if he’s going to be able to keep up with Peggy.
If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem, and she might even begin to question whether Stark is as innocent as he claims.”
Marvel and Disney are finally putting on the squeeze on the DC Comics dominated TV market. Carter currently hold the honor of being the first female-lead Marvel series, as she already a fan-favorite within the Marvel Universe I expect great things. Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas who both did some amazing work on series like Reaper, Dollhouse, Hawaii Five-0, Resurrection will serve as co-showrunners for the first season. Lyndsy Fonseca of Nikita fame has recently joined the cast and though not confirmed, don’t be surprised if the events of this series lead into next summers’ Ant-Man film.
Marvel’s Agent Carter premieres on ABC, January 6th 2015 9pm/8c.
