AKA Jessica Jones

Recommended Posts

Although Disney CEO Robert Iger revealed last month that three Marvel properties are being developed for live-action television, we’ve only known the names of two — until now.

Variety reports this morning that Twilight screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg is writing and producing a series based on Jessica Jones, the superheroine turned private investigator, for a planned fall 2011 premiere on ABC.

AKA Jessica Jones joins the previously announced Incredible Hulk and Cloak & Dagger in the television pipeline, but will likely be Marvel Television’s first project on the Disney-owned network.

Created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, Jessica Jones debuted in November 2001′s Alias — ABC can’t use that title because of the Jennifer Garner series — a Marvel MAX comic about an embittered former superheroine who, after a traumatic experience, gives up her costumed identity and opens a detective agency. But once she settles in, she discovers her services are sought by clients with superhero connections.

Rosenberg, who has been a producer and writer on Showtime’s Dexter, reportedly was drawn to Jones because the character is deeply flawed but with a biting sense of humor.

Bendis will serve as a consultant. Rosenberg, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb, Marvel Entertainment’s Joe Quesada, Marvel Worldwide’s Alan Fine and 3 Arts Entertainment’s Howard Klein are executive producers.

YES. Freakin' awesome concept for a show, plenty of hero cameos to play with an a dynamite concept for a long term show. They can even set it in the Avenger-verse of the Marvel movies, that would be awesome. Just have the odd magazine from Iron Man in the background and have it all be a street level story set in that world.

Basically, this should show Smallville how it's done.
