I certainly think that a S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show featuring Agent Coulson would be a hit. Earlier in this thread we speculated that it could be a super-powered version of The X-Files, with Coulson spearheading S.H.I.E.L.D.'s efforts to find and recruit or neutralize metahumans. There are so many characters in Marvel's 5,000+ library that the show would never run out of interesting problems for Coulson to tackle. Such a show is far more interesting to me than the Jessica Jones vehicle Marvel already has in development.

Apparently, the major TV networks think it would work, too, because Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel's TV division, said in an interview that Marvel has been approached multiple times with requests to develop a show centered around Agent Coulson. Loeb said that Marvel hasn't decided to do that, but I have my fingers crossed that they'll make the jump sooner rather than later.

Of course, if Marvel goes ahead with the long-rumored Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. movie, this becomes moot. (Zoe Saldana would make the perfect Val, BTW.)

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
