ABC has ordered a full series of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Ahead of it’s pilot airing later this year, the show has been picked up for a full series. Starring Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, the show will focus on a group of agents, led by Coulson, that will take on unclassified cases. Here is the synopsis for the show;
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet—the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge). Their initial investigations lead them to civilian computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
