“Twilight” franchise screenwriter and former “Dexter” executive producer Melissa Rosenberg is set to adapt Marvel’s “AKA Jessica Jones” for a fall 2011 series on ABC, reports Variety.
Rosenberg will write and execute produce the project, which will likely be Marvel Television’s first official project for ABC ahead of “The Incredible Hulk.”
Besides Rosenberg, executive producers on “AKA Jessica Jones” include Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb, Marvel Entertainment chief creative officer Joe Quesada and Marvel Worldwide’s Alan Fine; 3 Arts Entertainment’s Howard Klein (“Parks and Recreation”) is also an executive producer.
Brian Michael Bendis, who created the character on which the series is based and the comic “Alias” in which she first appeared (along with Michael Gaydos), is a consultant.
