If you saw the first game of the NBA Finals on Thursday, then you saw a quickie TV spot for ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD”. It’s a very quick spot, only about 10 seconds long of actual footage, with most of the spot taken up with credits and whatnot. Still worth a look if you’re one of those people looking forward to the show. And really, why wouldn’t you be?
Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, Agent Phil Coulson 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, an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May; and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons. They’ll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye.
Prepare for an epic adventure that showcases the hope and wonder of the human spirit. This is a world of Super Heroes, aliens and the unusual – of action, spectacle and world spanning stories. The show will speak to the human condition through the lens of our very human, non-powered S.H.I.E.L.D agents – that together we are greater than we are apart, and that we can make a difference in the world.
Starring Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Ming-Na Wen and Chloe Bennet.
Airing on Tuesdays this Fall on ABC.
