Krysten Ritter is all set to play the character of Jessica Jones, and is set to premiere on Netflix by the end of 2015. Krysten Ritter is known for her roles as Jane Margolis on the AMC drama series Breaking Bad and Chloe on the ABC comedy series “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23“. Before Krysten Ritter – Alexandra Daddario ,Jessica De Gouw ,Marin Ireland ,Teresa Palmer were considered to play the role of Jessica Jones. This series will have a 13 episode order. Melissa Rosenberg is on the Showrunner Panel and representing Marvel’s Jessica Jones TV series.
This TV series is based on the Marvel Comics ‘Alias’ , wherein the character makes its first appearance. Jessica Jones appeared as a former super heroine, who became the owner and sole employee of Alias Private Investigators. She has since then starred in two ongoing series and became a member of the New Avengers alongside her husband Luke Cage during Marvel Comics Heroic Age. The character of Luke Cage is believed to be introduced in the next series. The TV series will be even more darker than the comic series.
Marvel thinks that Jessica Jones could be their next breakout character and that Krysten Ritter’s got the goods to make it happen.
Speaking about the dark tone of the show, Rosenberg said, “Well , is the audience going to respond to this or not? I don’t know, but if I’m afraid of it, I’m not doing the right thing”. The show’s rigorous production schedule reflects on Marvel’s reported plan to unveil a new Netflix series every six months after “Jessica Jones ” debuts . “She was the ideal” ,Rosenberg said about Ritter who possessed the right combination of dramatic chops and comic timing to make Marvel’s superhero-turned-private detective pop.
Perhaps Ritter’s experience in both genres , most notably in the AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and ABC’s cult favourite “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” gave her the proper background Rosenberg and her team were looking for . It would be interesting to see how Krysten Ritter pulls off this psychological/superhero thriller.
