Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off Marvel's Most Wanted gets an official synopsis

ABC has released the official synopsis for Marvel's Most Wanted, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off that follows superspy exes Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter. According to the logline, Morse and Hunter, played by Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood respectively, take up arms with an unlikely ally after the collapse of their former employer.

"Centers on Bobbi Morse (aka Mockingbird) and Lance Hunter of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., two ex-spies and ex-spouses who are on the run with no friends, no S.H.I.E.L.D. and a long list of enemies looking to claim the bounty on their heads. Able to trust no one but each other, Bobbi and Hunter form an uneasy alliance with Dominic Fortune, a rogue adventurer with a wealth of resources and even more adversaries, who agrees to protect them so long as they help him with his own agenda. These two heroes will help anyone in need, all while trying to uncover the conspiracy that put their own lives in jeopardy."

In the Marvel comics, Dominic Fortune is a retired mercenary and spy who just can't seem to get out of the game. Morse and Hunter may be used to working in a more official capacity, but it sounds like Fortune, played by Delroy Lindo, won't have any problems keeping the quarrelsome duo occupied.

Starring Adrianne Palicki, Nick Blood, Delroy Lindo and written and executive produced by Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewski, Marvel's Most Wanted is slated to debut on ABC sometime this year.
