The Marvel TV show, Agent Carter, is coming to ABC on Tuesday January 6, 2015 at 8 p.m. Eastern.  ABC calls her a "One Woman Army," in the previews for the TV show.  Agent Peggy Carter is played by Hayley Atwell.

Agent Peggy Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger


In this movie, Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) played a strong woman, desensitized to the abundant supply of male ego, and seemed to have a tough outer shell in the first Captain America movie.  Towards the end of the movie, it was revealed that Steve Rogers (Captain America) had feelings for her, and she also liked him.  This is made evident when she kisses him as he is jumping from the car from the runway onto Red Skull's plane.  She also saw that Steve Rogers had a picture of her out as he was trying to pilot the aircraft before it crashed into the Arctic.

What is the ABC TV show Agent Carter about?

The ABC TV show Agent Carter is based in 1946, and U.S. troops are returning home from the war.  Agent Carter works for the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR).  Agent Carter is given secret missions by Howard Stark, while maintaining a cover of typical administrative work at a phone company.

In the previews, her friend says, "You work at the phone company...it ain't life and death." Agent Peggy Carter walks out of the room and says: "You have no idea."


Episode 1 and Episode 2 of Agent Carter on ABC

In the first episode of Agent Carter on ABC, Peggy is contacted by Howard Stark (played by Dominic Cooper), and he needs Peggy to help clear his name.  He gives her his butler, Edwin Jarvis, at her disposal.  Howard Stark takes off in a motorboat, on the run, because he has been framed for unleashing a deadly weapon.

In episode two of Agent Carter, this deadly weapon that Howard Stark was accused of unleashing, has fallen into enemy hands, and Agent Carter must recover it to save the day.
