In addition to renewing Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., ABC recently added another Marvel TV series to its 2014-15 season by way of Marvel’s Agent Carter, and now the first poster and synopsis for the show have arrived online.  We previously learned quite a bit about the plan for Agent Carter when we interviewed executive producers/screenwriters Christopher Markus and Steve McFeely, and this official synopsis confirms much of what they told us.  Set in 1946, the show follows Captain America’s Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) as she finds herself marginalized while working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) when the men return home from WWII.  We discovered in the Marvel One-Shot short film Agent Carter that the character will eventually go on to found S.H.I.E.L.D. with Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), but this initial season of the Agent Carter TV show will take place before that event.

Markus and McFeely told us that they envision a 10 or 13-episode first season, but an official number hasn’t yet been confirmed.  Hit the jump to check out the Agent Carter poster and synopsis.

Here’s the official synopsis for Marvel’s Agent Carter courtesy of Marvel, followed by the debut poster:

“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter 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 must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb.
