AKA Jessica Jones’s TV adaptation is still on the cards, despite ABC passing up the pilot.
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg has revealed that the Marvel Comics-inspired project is likely to be pitched to alternate networks in a bid to find a new home for it.
“I did the Jessica Jones pilot, but they didn’t pick it up to pilot. The studio still owns it, and I think we’re going to go shop it around to some other outlets to see. So, that’s on hold,” she told Collider.
The proposed AKA Jessica Jones series is to be set within the Marvel Studios movie universe, following the adventures of Jewel (Jessica Jones), Power Man and Ms Marvel.

New Avengers (Volume Two) #1
Jessica: You are a shrewd businessman, Danny Rand.
Danny: I’m pretty sure I own half of it anyhow, Jessica.
Jessica: How’s that?
Danny: You bought it with my dollar.
Jessica: Yeah, good luck with that.
Danny: Should we, I don’t know, go in?
Luke: Honestly..I kind of just want to stand here and let this moment happen.
Danny: Yeah, I can see that.

Sixteen: Favorite mother character
I totally didn’t even think about this one before I picked Jess, and I think it’s because being a mother doesn’t define her as a character. Which sounds kind of shitty for me to say, I know, but I don’t like characters that only have one thing going for them, and Jessica is definitely not like that. Before she even met Luke, she was a superhero in her own right; she has a past, friendships, troubles that have nothing to do with her family. I love her because she’s a real person to me, and because she hasn’t been relegated to the background since having her baby. She’s still a big part of the Avengers, which is refreshing. It seems like a lot of the time, when a couple has kids, the male character gets to keep on keeping on and the female character is shoved to the back, as though being a mother prevents you from doing anything else. And that’s why Jessica is great; she’s a good mother and and good character.
Best duo ever
Jess was definitely about to whoop Matt’s ass, big time.
This is probably one of my favorite comic book panels EVER. Jessica Jones is my favorite comic book character for a reason.
