Now that the Agent Carter TV series has been confirmed, we have an official synopsis for the show, courtesy of Marvel.com:

“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.”

Marvel.com has also released a first promotional image for the show, which looks like this:

We’re very psyched about this – a strong female lead, period drama, the Cold War aspect, not to mention Hydra…it’s all looking very, very exciting.
