In the second season, Francis (Kevin Spacey) and Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes.
President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence.

Following the news that Buffy and The Cabin in the Woods' Drew Goddard is the writer to bring Daredevil to the small screen, here's the next tasty choice of writer for Marvel's new live-action superhero series: Melissa Rosenberg.
Best known as the writer of all five screenplays for the Twilight saga, Rosenberg, also a producer, wrote a number of episodes in Dexter's early seasons, as well as ABC's recently cancelled mob drama, Red Widow. The Netflix project will be something of a reunion for the writer/producer and the Alias character, as Rosenberg was attached to write the now-defunct ABC Jessica Jones series, back in 2010.
That's Marvel/Netflix's first two superhero shows with writers then, just leaving Luke Cage and Iron Fist. Any preference on who brings those stories to life? »
Just last week Marvel Studios announced that it had sold five miniseries to Netflix, with Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and Jessica Jones each receiving their own 13-episode series and building towards the small screen team-up The Defenders, and it seems that Marvel is wasting little time in securing talent for the ambitious project.
According to The Wrap regular Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams collaborator Drew Goddard is set to write the screenplay for the Man Without Fear's TV series. Goddard's previous writing credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Alias, Lost, Cloverfield and World War Z, while he also directed the Whedon-produced The Cabin in the Woods last year. At this point, it's unclear whether Goddard will find himself behind the camera for any of the episodes, or if he'll also act as a producer.
Goddard is a self-confessed Daredevil buff, having spoken about the character earlier this year: »

Yesterday we heard that Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) has signed on to script Marvel and Netflix's upcoming Daredevil miniseries, and now it's been revealed that Melissa Rosenberg (The Twilight Saga, Dexter) will write and produce Jessica Jones.
Rosenberg originally signed on to develop an adaptation of Alias entitled Aka Jessica Jones for ABC three years ago, only for the pilot for to be put on hold. It's understood that her initial idea will undergo redevelopment, presumably to ensure it fits in with Marvel's plan to build towards The Defenders with separate miniseries for Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
Are you happy that Rosenberg's vision for Jessica Jones is finally going to reach the screen, and who would you like to see taking on the reins for Luke Cage and Iron Fist? Let us know in the comments below...

After it was announced that Netflix was partnering with Marvel on several new shows based around its characters, talk immediately turned to who would write them. Just kidding; talk immediately turned to who would play them, followed by more dumping on Ben Affleck. But now Marvel has addressed at least the second or third fan concern by naming Drew Goddard and Melissa Rosenberg as the writers behind its Daredevil and Jessica Jones series, respectively. For Goddard—whose TV credits include Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Alias, and Lost, as well as the films Cloverfield and The Cabin In The Woods »
Marvel is bringing their universe to the small screen after their theatrical success, and following "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." on ABC, the next step is turning to Netflix for four new character centered series including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage and they aren't wasting any time. Yesterday The Wrap brought word The Cabin in the Woods director and co-writer, Drew Goddard, had begun negotiations to write a 13-episode season based on Marvel's blind superhero "Daredevil", which was last seen on the big screen as played by Ben Affleck in 2003. Goddard is of the Joss Whedon troupe of creatives and also worked on the likes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Angel", "Alias" and "Lost" which makes him an apt go-to candidate. Next, THR reveals Marvel has reached out to Melissa Rosenberg to write and exec produce the "Jessica Jones" series. Rosenberg is best known for writing the films in »

Yesterday, we told you that Cloverfield and The Cabin in the Woods writer Drew Goddard will be writing the first Marvel series on Netflix, Daredevil. Now Deadline reports that Marvel has hired Melissa Rosenberg to oversee another one of their four Netflix shows: Jessica Jones. Rosenberg is a TV vet with credits that include writing on Ally McBeal, The O.C., and Dexter. She's, however, best known for writing all five of the Twilight films. She was actually hired by ABC three years ago to try to develop a show about the retired superhero turned detective Jessica Jones but that never went anywhere. You might say Rosenberg has a Jessica Jones jones. »

Less than a week after Marvel and Netflix forged their monumental 4 series/1 miniseries deal, whispers and murmurs about their forthcoming collaborations have already started to slowly filter in through the Internet; just yesterday, word came out that Marvel has begun courting The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard to pen Daredevil (following the company’s reacquisition of rights to the property last year). Now, this morning, Marvel has made their next significant move by approaching screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg about serving as both scribe and executive producer for Jessica Jones.
If Rosenberg’s name doesn’t ring any immediate bells, then mentions of Twilight and Dexter should refresh your memory; she wrote the screenplays ...

Marvel is moving quickly on its four TV dramas with new partner Netflix. The studio has tabbed fanboy writer Drew Goddard (“The Cabin in the Woods”) to write and produce “Daredevil” (and I wouldn’t be surprised if he also ended up directing an episode or two as well), and has brought back “Twilight’s” Melissa Rosenberg to introduce the world to “Jessica Jones”. As previously reported, “Daredevil” and “Jessica Jones” will join fellow superhero TV dramas “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” on the popular streaming service Netflix, before the main characters come together in a TV version of The Avengers — in this case, The Defenders. For those who haven’t been keeping up with their comic books, Daredevil is blind lawyer Matt Murdock (previously played on the big screen by Ben Affleck in the movie “Daredevil”), who was blinded as a kid in a toxic waste accident.

The Disney and Netflix deal for four original Marvel series to premiere on the streaming service is moving forward quickly. Yesterday came word that "The Cabin in the Woods" co-writer/director Drew Goddard had come onboard to write and direct the "Daredevil" adaptation.
Today, it has been revealed that "The Twilight Saga" series scribe Melissa Rosenberg is set to write and executive produce the "Jessica Jones" series. Rosenberg was actually selected years ago to develop the property for ABC, but the series never came to fruition.
Now though she's back and the series is definitely moving forward. Rosenberg will hopefully have better luck with this than her last series, ABC's quickly cancelled "Red Widow".
In the comics, Jones is a private detective and former superhero who'd had a lackluster career and quit after suffering an incident that left her in a coma.

Marvel is reportedly in negotiations with key creative forces for two of their upcoming TV series that will be available via the Netflix streaming service starting in 2015. Daredevil, which revolves around a blind attorney who fights crime in New York's Hell's Kitchen, will be written by Drew Goddard, according to The Wrap. Goddard's television experience stretches from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Angel (as a writer) to Alias to Lost (as a writer/producer). He wrote the screenplay for Cloverfield and made his directorial debut with The Cabin in the Woods. He also came on board to work on the troubled third act for zombie epic World War Z. As expected for comic book property-adaptors, Goddard has professed his love for Daredevil in the past,...

Well, that was fast. Last week, we brought you news that Marvel would be teaming up with Netflix to develop four thirteen-episode limited series based on the superheroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, which would lead into in a Netflix mini-series adaptation of The Defenders. Now, the first name attached to this hugely ambitious project has been revealed. Drew Goddard, the director of acclaimed meta-horror comedy The Cabin in the Woods, is in final negotiations to write the Daredevil series for Netflix.
Snagging Goddard to work on Daredevil makes a lot of sense from a storytelling perspective. The popular writer-producer frequently joins forces with The Avengers director Joss Whedon; they’ve both worked on geek royalty series like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and they co-wrote the script for The Cabin in the Woods. With Whedon still working away over in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, handing »

When it was announced that Netflix was working on four connecting series based on Marvel comic books, we asked, “Will the shows be creator-driven or brand-driven?” It appears to be both. The Wrap reports that Drew Goddard will be writing the series. Goddard is both a Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams guy, with credits including Buffy, Lost, Cloverfield, and The Cabin in the Woods. Most recently, he worked with Damon Lindelof on a rewrite of World War Z. It's a dream come true for Goddard, who even before there was word of this project told Collider how big a fan he was of Daredevil as a kid: “You’re talking to a guy who had quotes from Daredevil painted on his wall while growing up.” He added, “Even when I was 18, I still had the blood-red door with the ‘I have shown him that a man without hope is a »

Disney and Netflix have found their man for Daredevil.
Representatives for Goddard, Netflix and Marvel declined comment.
Netflix has committed to four 13-episode series based on Marvel Comics characters including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage. Daredevil is the first series and it's expected to begin streaming in 2015 before all four shows lead into a miniseries based on the Defenders.
Story: Netflix Orders Four Original Marvel Series
- Lesley Goldberg
Drew Goddard, director and co-writer of the acclaimed horror comedy "The Cabin in the Woods," has begun negotiations to write the 13-episode Netflix series based on Marvel's blind superhero "Daredevil".
Goddard is the first name attached to the four Netflix shows in the works based on Marvel properties. "Daredevil" will be the first of the four to go into production and likely onto the VOD service.
Neither Marvel or Goddard's representatives had any comment. Goddard, who also wrote "Cloverfield," certainly has plenty of experience working on TV with writing gigs on the likes of "Lost," "Alias," "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" and "Angel".

Last week, Marvel and Netflix announced they are teaming up for TV shows based on the popular comic books Daredevil, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, which will debut sometime in 2015. Today, we have word that Drew Goddard is in negotiations to write the Daredevil series.
The comic book, which was adapted into a 2003 Daredevil movie starring Ben Affleck, follows blind lawyer Matt Murdock, who moonlights as a masked crimefighter, using his heightened four senses to his advantage while cleaning up the streets of New York's Hell's Kitchen.
There is no word on who may be developing the other three Netflix shows, each of which will consist of 13 episodes and lead into The Defenders mini-series. Disney executive Jay Rasulo revealed that, while these shows are in the works, there is still the possibility that these heroes may get their own movies as well, depending on how popular each show is on Netflix. »
Drew Goddard is in negotiations to write the upcoming “Daredevil” series for Netflix and Disney, an individual with knowledge of the project has told TheWrap.

Goddard previously served as a writer and producer on the hit ABC series “Lost” and “Alias,” as well as a writer on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel.” He wrote this year’s Brad Pitt zombie epic “World War Z,” and directed the horror movie “The Cabin in the Woods,” which he also co-wrote with Marvel maestro. »
