While at the TCA press tour last week, EPs Melissa Rosenberg and Jeph Loeb spoke in detail about Marvel's upcoming Jessica Jones series on Netflix. They began with Kristen Ritter's protagonist, who, like 'Matt Murdock' before her, looks set to undergo a very painful debut season. "She goes to very dark, emotional places... We beat the crap out of her," Rosenberg confessed, before adding: "You really get her strength of character, not in a noble way necessarily but she’s a tough broad." Loeb, meanwhile, revealed that there's something very relatable about Jones' pain and struggles. "You really understand who she is and where she comes from and what each of us might have done in that similar situation," he claimed. "The viewer has a connection on a level that has nothing to do with powers, nothing to do with costumes, nothing to do with comic books. It »
Her character, Claire Temple, is the McU's version of Night Nurse (a superhero patcher-upper from the comics), so it makes sense that she would help out more than one crime-fighter using her medical abilities.
She played a significant role in Daredevil season 1, and has been confirmed for the second season of that one, too. It looks like Claire could become the connective tissue between Marvel's Netflix projects, then, which would be entirely welcome with fans, we'd say.
New "Daredevil," "Jessica," "Luke" Details More details about Marvel's various Netflix shows have come out in the days following the streaming service's Television Critics Association presentation earlier this week. Here's a breakdown:
First season show runner Steven De Knight says that despite the inclusion of The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) in the second season, don't expect it to ramp up the violence to be more akin to the last film about the character (2008's "Punisher: War Zone"). De Knight says:
"The first season of 'Daredevil' was violent, but I always say it was more implied. It wasn't nearly as violent as 'The Walking Dead,' a show that I love. On that, if somebody were to crush somebody's head in a car door, you would've seen the head crush on screen, but we didn't want to go quite that far. We wanted to keep it right around »

Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of Ptsd, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need… especially if they’re willing to cut her a check.”

It's been awhile since we've heard anything regarding Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, ever since the official synopsis was released back in early May. Today Marvel has released the official logo for the Netflix series, which confirms that the title has been shortened to Marvel's Jessica Jones. The series is set to debut on Netflix later this year, but an official release date has not been given at this time.

Though it hasn't actually been officially released just yet, we can get a first glimpse of the official logo that'll be used for Marvel and Netflix's Jessica Jones in the video below. In it, showrunner and Ep Melissa Rosenberg praises lead actress Krystin Ritter's commitment to the role, and her toughness. She also says Netflix is the "dream" network for them to showcase the series.

Update: "Jessica Jones" executive producer/showrunner Melissa Rosenberg just told "Entertainment Tonight" at the TCA: “I think I'm allowed to say: Rosario Dawson will be dropping in... Smaller characters that populated that world will be popping in.” So I guess we can confirm that Claire Temple (the character Dawson played in "Daredevil") will cross paths with Jessica Jones. Earlier this year, Dawson did ink an agreement with Marvel/Netflix that will see her character appear in other series based on Marvel characters, and potentially movies as well. *** Cheo Hodari Coker will serve as executive producer and showrunner of the »

Marvel and Netflix are gearing up to begin promoting their Jessica Jones TV series, and ahead of any official reveals, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg has been dropping a few very interesting details during a round of recent interviews. In fact, while chatting to Et Online, Rosenberg revealed the most juicy tidbits about the show so far.
In the Alias comics, Jones starts out as an active superhero and takes the mantles of Jewel and Knightress before ditching the tights and moving on to private investigations. That’s where we’ll find her when the show kicks off, but Rosenberg hints that that we’ll get to see actress Krystin Ritter in costume at some point – most likely through flashback.
The bigger news, however, relates to that crossover with Daredevil that we’ve been hearing about. In regards to that, Rosenberg confirms that at least one character from that show will feature »

Well, it turns out there will be one with Rosario Dawson, who is set to appear in Jessica Jones as Claire Temple from Daredevil. Talking with Et Online, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg confirmed that […] »

The studio is teaming up with Netflix once again, this time to adapt comic book series "Alias" (no relation to the Jennifer Garner-led ABC hit) into a new show loosely connected to their previous smash "Daredevil" that took the streaming network by storm in April.
Access Hollywood spoke with "Jessica Jones" Executive Producer Melissa Rosenberg at the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles on Tuesday, and found out why Ritter was considered ...

In Brian Michael Bendis' Alias comic, Jessica Jones has a couple of failed superhero identities under her belt (Jewel and Knightress) before she ditches the capes and decides to become a Private Eye, and it sounds like we might be getting a glimpse of Krysten Ritter suited up as one or both of those alter-egos, possibly in flashback. During her interview with Et Online, Melissa Rosenberg didn't come right out and confirm anything, but she did say that they're definitely going to "hit on it." One thing she did confirm, however, was that Jessica Jones/Daredevil crossover we've been hearing about; as according to the showrunner, Rosario Dawson's Claire Temple will be a part of the show. "I think I'm allowed to say: Rosario Dawson will be dropping in," she revealed. "Smaller characters that populated that world will be popping in." Exciting prospect indeed. Will Temple be introduced »
The question of inclusion of minority and female characters in media is a long-standing and crucial one. With the rise of superhero movies and TV shows, that genre’s lens on women and minorities has come under some scrutiny. Later this year Netflix will release Marvel’s Jessica Jones, marking the first female-led superhero series from Marvel (as much as we love her, Peggy Carter isn’t technically a superhero). When Zap2it asked Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg if she felt a particular responsibility in bringing a lady superhero to life she responded: “The trap that we fall into is the ‘female’ in front of the ‘superhero.’ I never approached this as I’m writing for a woman; I’m writing for a character. Industry-wide, it’s like if you’re writing for a guy it’s a ‘character.’ If you’re writing for a woman it’s a ‘female character. »

At a swanky press event in America yesterday, Marvel let loose some secrets about their upcoming Netflix plans. We were at home eating biscuits at the time, but we’ve managed to find out what they said thanks to a detailed article by the fine folk at Collider.
Here’s a breakdown of what was said…
Marvel wants to debut a new show every six months, according to Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “And then, they will cross over and do a combined season [The Defenders] once we’ve launched the first season of each of the four characters. Some will selectively have multiple seasons, as they come out. The cadence of it, though, we believe, will probably be about two launches a year.”
And could The Punisher – set to appear »
Still upset that Marvel's Daredevil didn't get any Emmys love for its incredible stunt work? So is the Aka Jessica Jones boss! Melissa Rosenberg, showrunner of Netflix's upcoming Marvel series Aka Jessica Jones, couldn't believe that Daredevil was snubbed for a stunt Emmy nomination this year, especially after all the buzz surrounding all of the dark, gritty fight scenes. "No stunt Emmy! I was shocked! How could that happen?" Rosenberg tells E! News exclusively at the 2015 Summer TCA press tour. "How does that not get an Emmy nomination? And oh my god, the hallway scene! That was just beautiful choreography. I was quite stunned that they didn't get nominated." But »
Jessica Jones (formerly known as A.K.A. Jessica Jones) is something of a mystery, especially as we have no real idea whether expect superpowers or how it will differ to Daredevil. Thanks to showrunner Melissa Rosenberg though, we now have a much better idea about the direction of the Netflix series and how it will compare to the online streaming service's last Marvel hit.. "Jessica Jones is a very different show from Daredevil. We exist in a cinematic universe, the mythology of the universe is connected, but it will look very different. Tonally they’re very different. If you pick up Bendis’ Alias and pick up Daredevil, they’re wildly different. That was my one concern. Would I have to fit in with Daredevil? The answer was, ‘No, we’re hiring you for your point of view.’" Talking of the Man Without Fear, Rosenberg went on to emphasise the »

Writer Brian Michael Bendis co-created the character of Jessica Jones with artist Michael Gaydos in 2001. Now, Marvel Studios is making a live action version of her superhero-turned-sleuth story – she’ll be the protagonist of her own series, Jessica Jones, on Netflix.
Krysten Ritter is in the title role, with Mike Colter playing Luke Cage and David Tennant as the villainous Purple Man. Brian Michael Bendis hasn’t been too involved with this adaptation process, because he’s been working closely with Sony to make Powers, based on his Image comic with Michael Avon Oeming, instead.
Now, though, Bendis has seen the first few episodes and has nothing but nice things to say. Here’s what he posted on Tumblr (the grammar is his, not ours, so, er, »
Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta takes a step closer to the big screen, as a writer is hired for her first movie...
For some time, there have been plans to bring the best-selling series of Kay Scarpetta books by Patricia Cornwell to the big screen. And now it seems there may have been some progress.
Liz Friedman has now been hired to produce a screenplay based on the crime novels series, and Fox 2000 has also hired Melissa Rosenberg - a writer on the Twilight Saga and Marvel's Jessica Jones - to produce the film.
We're still a long way away from Scarpetta getting to the screen of course, and there's the small matter of a director to find. That's even before we »
Far back in the mists of 2009, Fox bought the rights to Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta novels, with an eye on a movie franchise. Angelina Jolie was attached to star, and Kerry Williamson was writing the screenplay. Since then, we've heard nothing, and Williamson defected to James Patterson and adapted Alex Cross instead. But as Cornwell's readers will know, Scarpetta keeps fighting.Liz Friedman has just been pegged to write a new Scarpetta screenplay, making the jump to films after regular writing and producing gigs on the small-screen likes of Elementary, Orange Is The New Black and House MD. She's currently working on Netflix/ Marvel's Jessica Jones as an executive producer, and her Jessica Jones colleague, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, will also join the Scarpetta crew as a producer, along with Mark Gordon (Rampart, Arms And The Dudes) and Geyer Kosinski (the current TV Fargo).Intriguingly, when he's not wearing his producing hat, »
A modestly budgeted, female driven, adult-targeted potential franchise launching serial killer thriller feature. It's something that Hollywood hasn't really done much of since the late 1990s, back in the days when the two A.J.'s (Ashley Judd & Angeline Jolie) had book adaptations like "Kiss the Girls" and "The Bone Collector" tailored for them into solid little films.
One adaptation of a crime thriller novel series long in the works has been that of the Kay Scarpetta character from acclaimed author Patricia Cornwell. Fox 2000 acquired the film rights to the sixteen books (at the time) featuring the opera-loving workaholic coroner in 2009.
The plan was to craft an original forensic science-centric story based on the character rather than a direct adaptation of one specific novel such as "The Body Farm" or "From Potter's Field". It was also being shaped as a vehicle for Jolie, and would've kept the dark and grizzly tone of the books. »
