No, I'm not being paid for this. As someone who watches only period dramas, an occasional documentary, and sometimes a Mysteries at the Museum, my TV pickings are really low. Matter of fact, because I seem to only watch PBS on Sundays, and nothing else, my husband has been threatening to get rid of cable.
"You can't do that!" I screech at him. "You never know when something really awesome is suddenly going to air on like, History channel or something."
Well, even if he takes that leap and cancels our Direct TV packages, thankfully a period drama is coming to ABC in January. I figure some of you would like to know about it. I only found out about it because my husband heard of it somehow.
So, to get to the point, Marvel's Agent Carter is premiering on ABC January 6th. I was already able to set my recorder to record the series. You should be able to as well. If not, mark it on your calendars or put a note/reminder in your phone.
And here's the 411 as well as a trailer:
"Marvel's Agent Carter, or simply Agent Carter, is an upcoming American television series created for ABC by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, inspired by the films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and the Marvel One-Shot short film of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise.
The series features the Marvel Comics character Peggy Carter, with Hayley Atwell reprising her role from the film series, as she must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark while trying to navigate life as a single woman in 1940s America. Several characters from Marvel Cinematic Universe films appear throughout the series. It is produced by ABC Studios and Marvel Television, with Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas serving as showrunners.
The series was officially ordered on May 8, 2014, and is scheduled to debut on January 6, 2015, during the season two mid-season break of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
