Well i think we had all heard the rumours,but apparently it IS in the early stages

Digital Spy
Quote

Hayley Atwell reprised her role as Peggy Carter for the shorts, in which her life continues as a budding secret agent after her boyfriend is stranded in ice.

Deadline reports that the project is in the very early stages of development and it is unclear whether Atwell will portray Carter for the TV series. Marvel is also still deciding on a definite writer.

Agent Carter is apparently one of several projects in the works at Marvel.

It's not as if she's tearing it up on the big screen, so this could be a great opportunity for her. Plus, there may be a time travel story in the future that could reunite her with Cap.

Rejoice! ABC Studios confirmed the Captain America movie screenwriting duo turned in a pilot script for TV series Agent Carter and seemed to confirm at a TCA meet with media that Hayley Atwell will reprise the role, with Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) as her sexist boss.

Not clear yet if it would air on ABC or perhaps air on Netflix like the other upcoming Marvel shows.

And if you liked that short lived Reaper show a few years ago, couple guys gals involved with that will apparently work on Agent Carter in some capacity.

Dominic Cooper is interested in reprising his role as Howard Stark too, don't think that's definite yet.

I'm not sure they need another Marvel non-superhero show at this point.  But I'm all for Hayley Atwell being on TV every week.  smile

Also, from what they're showing of her and her scenes, it's done in a snappy pulp WWII kind of style. Unlike the really weird monotone pacing of Agents of Shield.

I wonder if they could throw a Human Torch episode or two in that kind of show. Or Namor. Both active during WWII

No characters that are under contract (unless they fall under the mutant ban), superpowers, yeah, I am in for that. An Invaders buildup with Carter as their Colson. biggrin

Just imho, cameos are not the secret to success for these shows. To me Agents's main problem is (as others here have remarked) casting mostly cutie pie youngsters as if it was a CW teen show instead of some actors with some "meat" to them; and also basically templating the show as a crime procedural show full of generic nobodies that SHIELD is trying to "save."

Throwing in Thor's Sif for a cameo or two won't save the show. Although I've found recent episodes modestly entertaining, they've all kept setting series low numbers in the ratings. Doesn't mean it can't turnaround somehow, or even that ABC (as NBC did with Chuck in spite of ratings that never really improved) won't just stick with it for several seasons in spite of the ratings.

Just imho, if Agent Carter can't stand on its own feet as an appealing actress playing an entertaining character with fun stories, then digging up WWII era Marvel characters is not going to help it succeed as a mass audience show. I'm crazy about Atwell  The Weghted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you. but if the scripts aren't there, if they can't make her adventures interesting, then it won't stand on its own feet. If they do all those things, then by all means I think some interesting cameos from that era would be a cool frosting on the Hayley cake.  Fabulous
