Marvel's AGENT CARTER TV Show 'Has A Good Chance,' Says ABC Entertainment President

Including comments from one of the showrunners of the potential Marvel TV series, ABC's Entertainment Group President also has acknowledges Agent Carter, and praises its script. Check it out!

Just hours after it was reported that Reaper creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas were hired as showrunners, ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee acknowledged the potential Agent Carter TV drama today at the Television Critics Association winter press tour. “In terms of Agent Carter, the script's come in,” he confirmed. “It's a really good script, written by [Christopher] Markus & [Stephen] McFeely,” who scripted both Captain America: The First Avenger & The Winter Soldier. “So that one certainly has a chance to be on the network,” he added. The Hollywood Reporter makes note that Paul Lee also confirmed Hayley Atwell will definitely be a part of Agent Carter, however, the potential Marvel series is only in development and has yet to be ordered to pilot.

IGN also caught up with Tara Butters, who confirmed her and Michele Fazekas' involvement on Agent Carter. “We’d be coming on as showrunners and being a part of the series,” she said. “We’re very excited to be included in the Marvel family and to be a part of ABC Studios.” Whether the period setting was an appeal for her, Butters answered, “Absolutely. It’s one of the things that drew Michele and I to the project, because she’s such a strong, wonderful character if you’ve seen the [Marvel] one-shot and we’re just very happy to be involved.” When it was mentioned that Butters' husband, Marc Guggenheim, is an executive producers on The CW's Arrow, she declared, “We’re a Marvel/DC family. We’re all inclusive!” What do you think?

Marvel vs DC is only in the eyes of stupid fanboys that have no life

JorL5150 - 1/17/2014, 5:03 PM
A pretty good chance she has lower back pain

Marvel should have based Agents of Shield on the early days of Shield, with Peggy Cater, Howard Stark, and the Howling Commandos as man characters.
JorL5150 - 1/17/2014, 5:06 PM
Pretty good chance I'd buy any mag she got Nekkid in
JorL5150 - 1/17/2014, 5:07 PM
Can I just point out what everyone else is afraid to say?

2gold - 1/17/2014, 5:11 PM
We get Dum Dum and Stark forming SHIELD, I'd be in.
EvilSuperman - 1/17/2014, 5:11 PM

What a line up. Will be on HBO so they can show male nudity?
DrDoom - 1/17/2014, 5:16 PM
I'm so game
GliderMan - 1/17/2014, 5:17 PM
Please no. Nooooooo. Captain America wasn't even a huge movie, I guarantee not a lot of people know who the [frick] Agent Carter is. I don't want a spinoff. Most of the people on this site don't want another spin-off. Why would they want a show of even MORE mixed results like AOS?

EvilSuperman - 1/17/2014, 5:18 PM

You sir are awesome!

GliderMan - 1/17/2014, 5:19 PM
Urgh. I guess I just don't understand why they'd want to do another spinoff. They could do a show based on a C-list superhero and expand the universe instead of expanding characters were already familiar with.
NoPhucksGiven - 1/17/2014, 5:24 PM
[frick] you marvel. Bring back earth mightiest heros.
marvel72 - 1/17/2014, 5:40 PM
agent carter was the best marvel one shot so far,this would work better as a mini series.

the more i see of hayley atwell the better.
SuperCat - 1/17/2014, 5:49 PM
LOL!! @ gusto

I thought you were working on your Animal Planet show.

Inhuman - 1/17/2014, 5:56 PM
Ugh why is this being made
No0ne - 1/17/2014, 6:08 PM
Thanks Marvel!
Ace101 - 1/17/2014, 6:10 PM
I dont think this is really needed, but if they go ahead with this i still wouldnt mind as well. If they did this show it would cool if they showed the original invaders, maybe an arc that involved the winter soldier, a cameo of hank pym from the 60s, young nick fury. It would be cool if they did a blade series.

You might like Arrow better than AoS, and that's fine... that's what opinions are for. But there's no need to bring up Arrow on a Marvel thread. Go away.
Facade - 1/17/2014, 6:17 PM
This show should be on Cinemax and show plenty of nudity...then I'd watch.

Ok, but I'm far more excited about Netflix's DD show
superotherside - 1/17/2014, 7:37 PM
"It's a really good script."

As good as Agents of Shield?
mrHJK - 1/17/2014, 8:04 PM
Nobody wants this show. Don't need two SHIELD shows! Now, if they wanted to do a story on AoS where we saw Carter, Stark & friends started SHIELD
TheVirgin - 1/17/2014, 8:13 PM
The phase 1 isnt over after all..
TheRealRemyLebeau - 1/17/2014, 9:18 PM
I want this. Hayley is my girlfriend ;p
JediPhilosopher - 1/17/2014, 10:18 PM
I think the only way I'd ever watch a Marvel tv series is if She-Hulk were in it or some other "superheros" showed up as main characters.
mgeoff88 - 1/17/2014, 10:23 PM
The writers who worked on CA:TFA and CA:TWS? Yes please! This show is really shaping up to be great.

Wow, her husband is Marc Guggenheim? Ha ha, that's an interesting coincidence.
loki668 - 1/18/2014, 1:29 AM

You're "comedy" arrived. It was WB's announcement for their film. Was that enough humor for you? Don't confuse your opinion with fact.

As much as I like this actress, why waste their money on a period piece show that runs the risk of flopping? Just focus on the heroes, we don't need to see anymore Agent shows (Agents of SHIELD is enough).
