“Jessica Jones'” executive producer Melissa Rosenberg says the character of Jones on the upcoming Netflix series will be “incredibly flawed.”
The series, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, will follow the exploits of superhero-turned-private investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), who works on cases involving people with extraordinary abilities, reported Entertainment Weekly.
“It is an incredibly flawed, damaged and interesting character regardless of gender,” Rosenberg said.
Rosenberg said they have strived to stay true to the mythology of the character while still going “further in all our storytelling.”
“It’s 13 (episodes). There’s no pilot and then getting feedback, reaction and ratings. You’re in this bubble. So, what’s the story you want to tell? Where do you want to go with (the characters)? It’s a little scary at times, but I also think it’s the most freeing experience I’ve ever had.”
“We’re using some pretty obscure characters, so we’re taking them all over the place. We have to be cognisant of the mythology and the world.”
The 13-episode “Jessica Jones” is slated to premiere in late 2015.
