Following the news this morning of Drew Goddard boarding Marvel Studios' "Daredevil" Netflix series comes word, via Deadline, that Twilight scribe Melissa Rosenberg will be handling writing duties on "Jessica Jones." She was actually attached to an earlier iteration of the project back in 2010.

The Jones character made her first appearance in 2001's Marvel MAX title "Alias." Retroactively a former Avenger, Jones left the superhero life behind to run Alias Private Investigations. Although "Alias" ended after just 28 issues, Jones has since become a major character in the Marvel Universe.

"Jessica Jones" joins "Daredevil," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist" as one of four series that will build to a crossover miniseries, "The Defenders." Each is designed to take Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell's Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and the culminating mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.

Rosenberg will serve as both writer and executive producer on "Jessica Jones," which is expected to be the second show to premiere, following "Daredevil."
