Not one week after last Thursday’s announcement that Netflix is producing four live-action dramas based on a team of Marvel’s lesser-known comic book heroes, the company is already lining up producers to take the reigns of the shows.
Goddard’s credits also include Angel and Alias, as well as the big-screen feature World War Z. And his single, stellar acting credit: “Fake Thomas Jefferson” in the final moments of Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.Melissa Rosenberg is attached to Jessica Jones as writer and executive producer, according to a report at Deadline. The Twilight screenwriter worked on developing a show based on the same character for ABC three years ago.
The character of Jones is a former superhero who, suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, hangs up her costume and opens her own detective agency.
Netflix will create 13-episode first seasons of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage, with at least the first of these looking at a 2015 bow.
So far the company is not confirming either report. Stay tuned to SciFi Stream for more on the developing projects.
