Melissa Rosenberg To Head ‘Jessica Jones’ Series On Netflix

Sometimes news totally confounds me, not because I don’t understand it, but instead because I cannot tell if the news is good or bad.  One such story is the release this week that Melissa Rosenberg will the person in charge of the upcoming Jessica Jones series that is being produced as part of a deal between Marvel and Netflix.

What perplexes me here is Rosenberg’s record, she was one of the executive producers and writers of the hit show and critical darling, Dexter, but this is also the person who wrote all the screenplays for the Twilight Saga. Even if I give her the benefit of the doubt and say she did her best  to  make the pile of feces that is the works of Stephenie Meyer as entertaining as possible, Rosenberg was also a writer on the armpit that was Birds of Prey. I don’t know what to make of Rosenberg’s career, nothing in it leads me to any sort on conclusive feeling about her ability to take on this project, which makes her selection for this project all the more baffling. Marvel and Netflix have a lot riding on this whole thing so the hiring of Rosenberg with her mixed bag of a history seems off,  it feels like they should have grabbed somebody with more clout.

Whatever the case may be, it’s her baby now and I hope she makes the most of it. I sincerely hope that when I see the series I’ll be kicking myself for even being the least bit doubtful of her skills, but we’ll all just have to wait and see.

So what do you think of the choice Melissa Rosenberg for Jessica Jones? Let us know in the comments below.

Nine months before John was born his parents had sex. Born and raised in the cultural bubble that is the far Upper-Midwest, geek culture was John’s outlet to the outside world. John’s love of imagination and storytelling led him to passionately embrace the worlds of comics, TV, and film. It is a source of constant joy in John’s life that he wakes up every day with new avenues of geekdom to explore. In his brief stint on the planet, John has been everything from a dishwasher to a soldier serving a single tour in Iraq. John graduated from the University of North Dakota with a BA in English and currently resides in Grand Forks, ND, where he does stuff (and also things).

    I loved her work on Dexter. It proved she knew what she was doing there. True she wrote one the worst film franchises to date. But its Marvel and all the casting choices and crew hiring they have made have all been for good. They seem to have a keen eye for talent, who to choose, who to cast, who to direct, they just seem to have a knack for this and its worked out greatly for them.
