“Jessica Jones” On ABC???

jessica-jones-159074It is Friday, November 20, and one of the most highly anticipated series debuts today, and that is Jessica Jones, and the entire series is dropping on Netflix.
What if I were to tell you that the series wasn’t originally supposed to be on Netflix?

According to, Jessica Jones was, in the beginning, intended for ABC, which now hosts Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Jessica Jones executive producer, Melissa Rosenberg, actually began developing the series years ago, in 2010 to be exact, with ABC in mind, she has reminded fans. The show, then called “AKA Jessica Jones,” was announced as one of four series under development when Marvel TV first got started in earnest, alongside a new “Hulk” series, a “Mockingbird” series, and a series featuring “Cloak and Dagger.” Mockingbird, of course, made it to S.H.I.E.L.D., but the other series stalled completely.

Jessica Jones was originally planned to debut in the fall of 2011 but the series fell through, likely because of how dark, gritty, and violent it is. It wasn’t until 2013 when Marvel struck a deal with Netflix for the production of four exclusive live-action series that Jessica Joneswould come back to life, along with DaredevilLuke Cage, and Iron Fist.

The original pitch for “AKA Jessica Jones” on ABC had Carol Danvers, who of course becomes Captain Marvel, as her best gal pal. The version that made it to series doesn’t include the character, who is now earmarked for a Marvel Studios feature film. Instead, Trish “Hellcat” Walker took on that role.

“Had I fantasized about the perfect place for it [Jessica Jones], it would have been Netflix,” Rosenberg says.

So, do you feel that putting it on Netflix is better for the spirit of Jessica Jones as a series, or do you think it should have been on ABC and been given the chance for a wider audience? Are you watching Jessica Jones, and what is your reaction to this latest series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
