‘Twilight’ Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg To Oversee Jessica Jones Netflix Series

Following up on the news that Cabin in the Woods co-writer and director Drew Goddard will be the showrunner for Marvel’s Daredevil series coming to Netflix, Deadline reports that Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter of all five of the Twilight films, will be in charge of the Marvel/Netflix Jessica Jones series.

Rosenberg was attached to the series in its original incarnation on ABC, which never came to fruition. She has other experience in comics-based TV, though, having written several episodes of The WB’s Birds of Prey series.

Rosenberg most recently served as the executive producer of the ABC show Red Widow. She also wrote a handful of episodes of Dexter.

No word just yet on what the focus of the Jessica Jones series will be. Brian Michael Bendis’ Alias focused on Jones’ post-superhero career as a detective, but plans to team Jones and Matt Murdock up with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, who are also getting their own Netflix series, in a big event mini-series would seem to hint at a more superheroic approach.

We can probably expect news of who will be heading up the Cage and Iron Fist series in the days to come.
