Let’s Investigate Some ‘Jessica Jones’ Secrets
By now, you’ve probably binge-watched Jessica Jones, the second Marvel series from Netflix. But did you know the show was originally set up at ABC under a slightly different title? The series began life as A.K.A. Jessica Jones, in part because the comic it was based on, Alias, wouldn’t have worked as the title of the TV series because of the Jessica Garner spy show of the same name. Eventually, producers decided the “A.K.A.” part of the title was unnecessary and shortened the name to just Jessica Jones. There’s a nod to the original version in every episode, however; each episode title begins with “A.K.A.” – the third episode of Season 1, for example, is called “A.K.A. It’s Called Whiskey.” That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of the ScreenCrush series You Think You Know TV?
