ABC has released the latest TV trailer for their impending 8-episode event series Marvel's Agent Carter, which includes a first look at Shea Whigham as SSR boss Roger Dooley and a guest starring turn from Twin Peaks star Ray Wise, along with new footage of Hayley Atwell in action as Peggy.

There will be plenty of guest stars, as evidenced in this latest look at the thrilling new series, which debuts January 6. The eight episode event is the second action packed TV show from the creative minds at Marvel, inspired by the feature films Marvel's "Captain America: The First Avenger" and Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," along with the short "Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter."

Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter, who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren't recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts. It's 1946 and Peggy has found herself working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). Stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, an old acquaintance contacts Peggy to track down a group of individuals responsible for releasing weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on secret missions, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison, or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem.
