It is official – Marvel has confirmed that Krysten Ritter will indeed play the title role in the Jessica Jones series heading to Netflix!
“Krysten brings both the hard edge and the vulnerability the role demands,” said executive producer/showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, who previously created Dexter. “We can’t wait for fans to see her in action, coming to Netflix in 2015.”
Jessica Jones follows “a superhero suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, which leads to her hanging up her costume and opening her own detective agency, where she ends up helping people and assisting other superheroes.”
“Krysten Ritter has the type of range, spanning the comic to the tragic, that makes for the stuff of the best Marvel heroes,” said Jeph Loeb, executive producer/Marvel’s head of television. “As Jessica Jones, Krysten will bring one of the most beloved new characters of the past decade to life in a way we know will delight her longtime fans and introduce her to many more.”
