Fox UK has acquired the rights to the ABC Studios action-drama Marvel’s Agent Carter from Disney UK and Ireland. The series is 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 and will premiere in the UK First On Fox in July.
Marvel’s Agent Carter is Fox UK’s first acquisition since Jeff Ford took on the role of Managing Director, FIC UK, in April. He commented: “Marvel’s Agent Carter is blockbuster Hollywood entertainment at its best. With high production values and a stellar UK and international cast, the series is the perfect addition to Fox UK’s summer line up, continuing the channel’s commitment to bring exclusive, original and breakthrough series to a UK audience.”
