The series stars Natalia Cordova-Buckley, the Inhuman agent with the ability to run faster than the eye can see before snapping back into place. The announce also makes it sound as though she will be accompanied by several other agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as well.

"In 'Slingshot,' we're going to see a lot of her anger and her pain come out in regard to certain injustices that have been done to her and her family," she explains. "But at the same time, she never loses her humanity. She doesn't let the anger blind her."
