Agent Carter screenwriters discuss upcoming series

Ever since Hayley Atwell set about stealing scenes left, right and centre as Peggy Carter in the first Captain America , there have been calls for her to receive her own spin-off vehicle.

Marvel has answered those calls with the announcement of a pilot for a new Agent Carter TV show, and writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been discussing what we can expect from the series.

According to Collider , the duo are in regular contact with Atwell, who remains extremely interested in reprising her role, while the show is set to run for around 13 episodes, set in 1946, should it get the green light.

“That’s how this is envisioned, maybe even less,” says McFeely regarding the number of episodes. “It would be a limited series and you would wrap up that one bad guy and that one case, and then if you like it, we’ll do it again next year and it’s 1947.”

According to the duo, a script for the pilot is currently sitting with ABC, although nothing has been greenlit as yet. Given the current popularity of all things Marvel, we’d guess it’s only a matter of time…
