this would be interesting since it would likely have to take place in the past

I wonder if this will focus on the start of SHIELD?

Great idea, but when was the last time a period show succeeded on free TV? Even Mad Men, acclaimed as it is, plays to a pretty small audience. I don't see ABC rushing to take this route over shows using Marvel characters in the present day.

From Superherohype: Hayley Atwell Talks Peggy Carter TV Series





The news came a couple of weeks ago that Marvel is toying with the idea of expanding their latest One-Shot short film "Agent Carter" into it's own live-action television series. Little has been said about the project since then, but now star Haley Atwell says she's behind the idea. Speaking with Digital Spy, Atwell had nothing but nice things to say about Marvel and what she'd like to see in the series should it come to fruition.

"I read about that too. The one-shot was so successful, the fanbase were like, 'We want more of Peggy!.' I think Marvel probably take that very seriously, and it's certainly something I would be a part of doing. I'd be interested to show different sides of Peggy.

"Although she's kick-ass, and she can be aggressive and she can be just as competent as the men, it'd be nice to show that she's a feminist in a way. It's not just about her being aggressive and as aggressive as the men in those action sequences, but being able to be a little bit more rounded as a person. I think she could be a great role model and a great member of the Marvel Universe. I love the Marvel lot, they're really great people to work with, so it would be nice to go back and work with them again. I'd definitely do it."

From SHH: Hayley Atwell Confirms Agent Carter for an Eight-Episode Run


So at the very least it won't be quietly canned after two episodes if the ratings aren't coming in.

We'll get the original Jarvis on the show! I do hope Paul Bettany gets the job. It would add a lot of coolness since he's the artificial voice of JARVIS in Iron Man movies and the soon to be Vision. Marvel has to get Bettany.

Three episodes in. I have to say this is one of my favorite tv shows right now.
I like that Carter has to overcome the sexism of the time period. Co workers that don't respect her, even though she's better at her job than any of them.
The action is mostly grounded, though there is plenty of super science she has to battle.
Love that they put Jarvis in here. Great way to put him in the MCU. I like that they made him married too, so that there won't be any romantic tension, just friends working together.
Also, Hayley Atwell is really, really frakking beautiful. So, that keeps me invested in this show as well.
