Attention Netflix subscribers: Now that you've already binged away your life on "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," there's some good news.

A new show is in the works!

Netflix has bought the rights to produce an original TV series based on the dark children's books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events."

And here's what Lemony Snicket (i.e. author David Handler) himself has to say about it:

"I can't believe it," Mr. Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. "After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books."

A film version based on the first book starring Jim Carrey was released back in 2004.

ABC is continuing their Marvel investment! Not only have they officially renewed Agents of SHIELD for a second season, they've also ordered the Captain America spin-off, Agent Carter.

For those who can't recall her role in the Cinematic Universe, Peggy Carter was Cap's World War II love interest, a formidable agent, and co-founder of SHIELD. While there isn't a lot of information about Agent Carter yet, the show is being described as:

It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.
Plus we have this scene from the Marvel One-Shot available on the Iron Man 3 DVD.
