ABC hasn't ordered a pilot for the Agent Carter TV series yet, but things are looking promising for the show. ABC and Marvel have hired a pair of showrunners for the series and confirmed that actress Hayley Atwell will be involved.

During ABC's Television Critics Association presentation, ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee announced that Reaper creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas will be serving as the showrunners for the series, which will take place one year after Captain America: The First Avenger as Agent Carter builds her career as a secret agent. He also said that Atwell is attached to the project. Woo!

Right now, the series is still in development, but Lee says that a "good" script has come in and, "That [show] certainly has a good chance to be on the network."

Assuming two hypotheticals, this show getting picked up and SHIELD being renewed, but I wonder if ABC plans them for the same night or if they'd spread them out during the week.
