COULSON IS ALIVE!!!
Oh, yeah, also ABC is planning on airing this show in its fall lineup. Pilot co-written and directed by Joss Whedon.
Fresh from his role in the summers box office smash, Marvels 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 havent 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). Theyll be joined by civilian new recruit and computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).
I almost don't care if it's a huge flop and cancelled in the third episode. Coulson is alive and they CAN'T cancel it by summarily bumping him off again!
