Marvel has plenty on its TV development plate already, between the ongoing 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and the five upcoming 'Defenders' Netflix series, but it seems a potential 'Agent Carter' TV spinoff may yet move forward after all. The studio has all-but-officially hired a pair of writers and executive producers to run the drama, seemingly confirming its development for ABC.
