In case you're not up to speed, 'Agent Carter' stars Hayley Atwell as one of the founders of Marvel's clandestine organization S.H.I.E.L.D.. The series is set in 1946, and it also has Dominic Cooper in a recurring role as Howard Stark (Tony Stark's father). The show will air on the +ABC Television Network.
So far, the previews have looked really interesting and I can't wait to see Atwell in a weekly series - it's long overdue for the talented actress to have her own show.
