It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad.

Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”

CA-TFA_PeggyCarterOther than Atwell,  no one else has been named in the cast yet,  so no world if we will see Stark, Sr. (Dominic Cooper) or any other characters already introduced (The Howling Commandos? Zola?) Or where on the schedule the show will air.   But with their upfronts coming this Tuesday morning, May 13, we are sure to find out more soon.

Stay tuned.
