Of all last week's US TV renewal and commissioning news, perhaps the most exciting was the go-ahead being given to Marvel's Peggy Carter spin-off series, coming to ABC in the US.

Not only did the Agent Carter Iron Man 3 DVD one shot promise great things for a potential Agent Carter series, but the hope is that a regular TV outing with a Marvel heroine in the lead could warm the cold feet of movie producers reticent about making female-led comic-book movies.

It's not yet been confirmed whether we're looking at a ten or thirteen-episode season for Agent Carter, but the synopsis for the first season is as follows:

"Marvel’s Agent Carter, starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. 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. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life–Steve Rogers. 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. Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Marvel’s Agent Carter is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb."
