According to the press release by ABC on its official website, "Marvel's Agent Carter" depicts the events of the era before Phil Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. agents took the job of protecting the world. At the time, Peggy Carter assumed the secret role of crime-fighting agent. During the day she worked as Strategic Scientific Reserve and the rest of the day assisted Howard Stark in his secret missions.

The network has released synopses of "Marvel's Agent Carter Episode 1," teasing exciting spoilers. The first segment of the show is titled "Now is Not the End" and is expected to be an engaging one. According to ABC's media report, in the premiere, Howard Starks finds himself being framed for supplying the deadliest of arms and ammunitions for money. The only person he trusts is Peggy Carter, and he immediately approaches her to help him do three things for him: find those responsible, discard the weapons and clear his name.
