Marvel-series Agent Carter en Most Wanted geannuleerd

Marvel-series Agent Carter en Most Wanted geannuleerdEerder werd er gespeculeerd dat het Marvel’s universum op televisie zou gaan krimpen. Dit blijkt nu echter een feit te zijn. Zo heeft zender ABC besloten om de Marvel series Agent Carter en Most Wanted te annuleren.

In een officieel bericht maakte ABC ten eerste bekend dat er een vol seizoen besteld is van de serie Conviction, met in de hoofdrol Agent Carter’s Hayley Atwell. Dit betekend meteen het einde voor Carter, de eerste serie uit de Marvel stal die stopt. Maar er is nog meer. Marvel’s Most Wanted zou een nieuwe serie worden maar deze wordt niet meer geproduceerd. Dit is de tweede keer dat ABC het project met Adrianne Palicki en Nick Blood aan de kant schuift. Vorig seizoen was de serie al in ontwikkeling bij ABC, maar het netwerk besloot er niet mee door te gaan. Toch bleek de serie nog levensvatbaar, dankzij een soort van backdoor pilot in S.H.I.E.L.D. Het mocht echter niet baten. Jeffrey Bell en Paul Zbyszewski zouden de serie gaan schrijven en produceren. Uitvoerend producent Jeph Loeb vertelde:

“We’re very proud of all the hard work, from Jeff Bell and Paul Zbyszewski’s writing and producing to the incredible cast, especially the supremely talented Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood, who we adore,” 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is nu de enige Marvel serie die nog op ABC te zien is.

Agent Carter de eerste vrouwelijke Doctor Who?

Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) heeft in een Twitter Q&A laten weten dat zij Doctor Who zou willen spelen. Op de vraag van een fan antwoordde zij: “I’d like to BE Doctor Who.”

Dus Steven Moffat (Showrunner Doctor Who) heeft hopelijk zijn oren open gehouden. Er zijn al jaren fans die een vrouwelijke Doctor willen. Atwell zou een goede keuze zijn, aangezien zij zich bewezen heeft in Agent Carter als actieheldin. Het enige wat Moffat moet doen is het vragen. Wat denken jullie van Atwell als vrouwelijk Timelord?

Hayley Atwell over Agent Carter

Over een paar maanden is de serie Agent Carter te zien. In de hoofdrol zien we Hayley Atwell als Peggy Carter die we kennen uit de Captain America-films.

In de serie is het 1946 en is de oorlog net voorbij. Peggy raakt gemarginaliseerd als de mannen terugkeren van het buitenland. Ze moet nu een balans vinden tussen administratief werk en het op geheime missies gaan voor Howard Stark.

In een interview met TV Line ging Atwell in op de rol. Bekijk het interview hieronder. Atwell bevestigde dat de serie acht afleveringen zal tellen en dat deze te zien zijn tijdens de pauze van Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. De serie is in januari 2015 te zien.

Meer details over plot Agent Carter

In navolging van Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. komt er nu ook de serie Agent Carter. Hierin wordt de hoofdrol gespeeld door Hayley Atwell, Peggy Carter uit de Captain America films. De serie speelt zich af in de jaren veertig, vlak na het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Voor beide series is er een teaserposter vrijgegeven.

Tevens spraken uitvoerend producenten Michelle Fazekas en Tara Butters over de serie. Zij vertelden dat de One-Shot het uitgangspunt vormt voor de serie: “Okay, so the short really is the basis for the series. So she’s working at SSR, post-war — so it’s post-war, post-Captain America. As far as she knows, Captain America’s dead. So that’s where the world lives.”

Verder gingen de twee in op het feit dat de serie acht afleveringen krijgt: “Eight episodes is fabulous from a writing perspective. When you’re breaking the spine of the season, it’s a really nice number where you can plan it and know where you’re heading. I think it’s perfect for Carter. How we treat it on Resurrection is sort of how we’re thinking about it on Carter, which is eight parts of a movie. So they’re all connected. They’re all they’re own stories and they all have their own drive, but it’s sort of building toward a big thing at the end of the eight episodes.”

FOREVER
Doctor Henry Morgan, New York City’s star medical examiner, has a secret – he is 200 years old. At the age of 35, Henry died for the first time, and despite many more deaths, is always reborn at 35 years old, without aging a day. With morbid experiments, he tries to get to the bottom of his inexplicable immortality, but every time he is reborn as the same old Henry. Being immortal can have its advantages. Henry has seen every corner of the world, learned many languages, climbed Mount Everest, and loved many women. But it can have its heartbreaks as well; like outliving the love of his life, Abigail. To Henry, eternity has not been a blessing – it’s a curse. Henry has spent many decades getting to know Abe, his 76 year-old friend, and the only person who knows his secret. Abe owns an antique store, which hides Henry’s lab where he searches for the secret of his immortality. His experiences with death serve him well as New York’s star medical examiner. Henry’s skills of observation are remarkable, allowing him to read people, whether dead or alive, with stunning accuracy. Like when he meets 32 year-old Detective Jo Martinez, who is investigating the victims of a fatal subway crash. She didn’t have to tell him she is a recent widow who is drinking to mask her pain. He could see that for himself. Each week, a new case and his budding friendship with Jo will reveal layers of Henry’s long and colorful life in this drama from Matt Miller (Chuck, Las Vegas) and Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Gangster Squad).

MANHATTAN LOVE STORY
Have you ever wondered what your date was really thinking? This romantic comedy explores the differences between men and women by highlighting the disparities between what they say and what they really think throughout the course of a relationship, by exposing their unfiltered thoughts. Southern girl, Dana (Analeigh Tipton), is new to the city and ready to make it big in the New York publishing world. On the outside, she is full of ambition, passion, and confidence. Inside her head, she doubts her outfit, hates her ankles, and is sure she’s said and done exactly the wrong thing in every situation. In contrast to Dana’s unsettled life, she is temporarily staying with her college friend Amy (Jade Catta-Preta) and her husband David (Nicolas Wright), a seemingly perfect couple who set Dana up on a date with David’s brother, Peter (Jake McDorman). Like with Dana, we are privy to all of Peter’s inner thoughts. We know how charming and suave he thinks he is on his first date with Dana… and how he is sure it is not his fault when she runs out of the restaurant crying after five minutes. But with a little encouragement from their friends and family, Peter and Dana will try again. And again. And we will hear exactly what they are thinking every step of the way in this romantic comedy from Jeff Lowell (Drew Carey Show and Spin City).

SELFIE
Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan) has come a long way since her dorky junior high days. Thanks to the magic of laser hair removal, push-up bras and filters on photos-she is Instafamous with 143,000 followers. She shamelessly tweets about being pushed in a wheelchair through the airport because her 5-inch Louboutin shoes ‘are a kind of disability.’ Her nonstop selfies and posts raise her profile and rack up the ‘likes.’ But one lonely day, she has a revelation: being friended is not the same as having friends. She enlists the help of marketing guru and buttoned up co-worker, Henry, to ‘rebrand’ herself and her reputation. In return, Eliza flirtatiously offers to do “almost anything” but Henry just blushes and insists their relationship is strictly business. Eliza fails her first test when Henry catches her playing Candy Crush on her phone during a wedding ceremony-with the sound on. Listening to the vows “gave her the feels” and she just needed an escape. Her disregard for his rules pushes Henry to quit, but Eliza charms him into giving her another chance. Besides, people are beginning to notice the sparks between them. Loosely based on My Fair Lady, Selfie explores the modern struggles of Eliza and Henry, as he tries to teach her how to live life offline- whether she ‘likes’ it or not-from writer/executive producer Emily Kapnek (Suburgatory).

AMERICAN CRIME
The humble city of Modesto is far inland from San Francisco, surrounded by farmland. Parts are pastoral, while others are grittier with rising crime due to gangs, drug trafficking and addiction. All over the news are reports about a young couple who were attacked in their home. Matt Skokie, a war vet, was killed and his wife, Lily, was raped and beaten unconscious. This tragedy sends shock waves into the community, stirring up tensions across racial lines, and connecting victims, suspects, and their families. Matt’s father Chuck (Timothy Hutton) has flown in from Arizona for the grim job of identifying his son’s body. He and his ex-wife Barb (Felicity Huffman) haven’t seen each other in a long time and she is still angry with Chuck for his gambling addiction that destroyed their family. Barb became a struggling single mom and regrets having to raise Matt and his brother in public housing – as the only white kids there, they were badly treated. Chuck got the help he needed to overcome his addiction, but it took a lot of time to repair his relationship with his sons. They are at the hospital with Lily’s parents, Tom and a tearful Eve, watching over their unconscious daughter. They still believe there is life in her, but doctors tell them that they are pessimistic that she will ever recover, even if she wakes up. The two couples have to decide whether they talk to the press. Tom and Eve are not ready, but Barb wants to keep the story front page so the people who did this to their children are arrested. It’s been several days and no arrests. But that will soon change. The police are about to arrest four suspects. There’s teenager Tony Guti�rrez raised by single father, Alonzo. He insisted that Tony and his daughter, Jenny, steer clear of gangs and trouble. But, Tony rented out a car from his father’s garage to a thug named Hector Tontz… mainly because he was too scared to refuse. Because that car was at the scene of the crime, Tony is arrested. Later, Hector is arrested with force after he was caught using victim Matt’s credit card. Police get Hector, who proclaims his innocence, to give up petty crook Carter. He and his 20-year-old white girlfriend, Aubry, are methheads and always looking to buy. They are broke and desperate, and have a knack for finding trouble, like at a club when black girls beat up Aubrey for being with a ‘brother.’ Cops burst into their apartment and arrest the couple. Is it possible they knew the victims? The investigation takes a turn when a search of the couple’s home reveals a disturbing secret. The case has just gotten bigger and the players will have their lives torn apart. A racially charged drama, from the point of view of the victims, the accused, and their families – written and produced by Oscar winner John Ridley (12 Years A Slave).

BLACK-ISH
Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson (Anthony Anderson) is about to be promoted to Vice President of Relevant Advertising. He and his physician wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), are living the American dream: great careers, four beautiful kids, and a Colonial home in an upper middle class neighborhood. However, Dre starts to see his perfect life differently when he discovers that he’s being promoted to “Urban” VP at his firm and in the same week, his son announces that he wants to have a Bar Mitzvah. All of a sudden it hits Dre: Has success brought too much assimilation? Is his family of out of touch with their own identity? Dre’s opinionated, old school father, Pops (Laurence Fishburne), and his liberal wife have very different opinions about how Dre should handle the promotion and Dre Jr.’s birthday request. But Dre has it all under control. In order to prove that he hasn’t lost touch with his roots, he presents an extreme version of an “Urban” marketing campaign at work that raises more than a few eyebrows. He also decides to throw an African Rites of Passage ceremony for his mortified son. Ultimately, Dre’s family helps him realize that the best way to live is by embracing the new while honoring the past. He decides to throw his son a hip hop Bro Mitzvah and the successful event inspires him to create a multicultural ad campaign that wows everyone at the office. Living the American dream isn’t easy, but Dre is determined to find a way to hold onto his cultural identity while embracing a new future in this comedy that is written and loosely based on the life of Kenya Barris (The Game), and executive produced by Larry Wilmore (Bernie Mac).

GALAVANT
Dan Fogelman (Crazy, Stupid, Love; Tangled; Cars) teams up with Broadway and Hollywood’s award-winning musical team – composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid; Beauty and the Beast) and lyricist Glenn Slater (The Little Mermaid; Tangled) – for a musical comedy fairytale of epic proportions. Once upon a time, the dashing hero Galavant (Joshua Sasse) was a slayer of dragons, protector of the innocent, and defender of the less fortunate. But one day, the evil King Richard (Timothy Omundson) fell for Galavant’s ladylove Madalena and kidnapped her. On Madalena and King Richard’s wedding day, Galavant courageously fought his way back to the palace to rescue his love. And while this is where most fairytales end happily ever after, it’s where the tale of GALAVANT truly begins. Madalena stuns Galavant when she announces that she chooses fame, fortune, and the crown over Galavant and breaks his heart. Five years later we rejoin Galavant, heartbroken and drowning his sorrows in drink. Having given up on heroics, he’s a bit out of shape and flat broke. But his faithful squire Sid sees a momentous opportunity when Princess Isabella of Valencia arrives in search of “The Great Galavant.” She asks him to save her kingdom from its evil invader… none other than King Richard himself. Galavant must get back in the saddle, literally and figuratively, to take revenge on his nemesis, win back Madalena, and restore his “happily ever after.” But our fallen hero doesn’t realize that Isabella might not be revealing the whole story… Our hero’s quest for redemption will have many twists and turns along the way. And as one of the songs from Menken and Slater proclaims: “Huzzah And Tally-Ho! Sit Back And Here We Go!”

HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
Michaela, Wes, Laurel and Patrick are ambitious first year law students at a prestigious, cutthroat East Coast Law School where only the best students are given a shot at participating in real cases.

Professor DeWitt (Viola Davis) is a master litigator and invites all four of these students who want to work on a high profile murder case.

Wes even witnesses Annalise having an affair, and soon learns her lover is actually an unwitting pawn on the witness stand. She wins her case with ease and the students question just how far they are willing to go to earn a seat next to her in a courtroom on the next case. Although they know this formidable professor is dangerous, they will need her help, four months later, when they find themselves arguing out in the woods standing over a dead body. Now they are all entangled in a masterful, sexy, suspense-driven legal thriller from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, executive producers of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.
