I admittedly don’t know much about Jessica Jones, other than fact that it’s a cool name, something I’ll put on file for possible kid naming (far distant future). I do know that she’s lead character of Marvel Comics ‘Pulse’ series, a superhero turned investigator. I’ve never read it, but with it being a mature comic that features drug use and implied anal sex (so I’ve heard) I may have to put it on my to do list.

Anyway, Miss. Jones here is apparently getting her own live-action television series. What, what… in the butt (see what I did there)? Ya, a report from Variety says:

Melissa Rosenberg is the writer and exec producer on AKA Jessica Jones, which is being developed for ABC’s fall 2011 schedule. The deal isn’t fully set, but the trade says the show is likely to beat out the new Hulk as Marvel’s first show for ABC. Brian Michael Bendis, who created the character with artist Michael Gaydos, will consult on the series.

Melissa Rosenberg? You mean the screen writer of ‘Twilight? Awe fuck *rolls eyes*! Eh, I guess it takes an asshole to write about someone who takes it in the butt (Note: I’m really playin’ up this whole butt sex thing when, in the comic I think it was barely implied). Regardless, Bendis consulting will undoubtedly keep things in the right direction.

Again I haven’t read ‘Pulse’, but Jessica Jones sounds like she will pair well with T.V.. Particularly being that she is a dick, a private dick. America does love them Law and Order shows. On the other hand (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer” not withstanding), sci-fi television series with female leads tend to not do well. “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” “Birds of Prey” and “Bionic Woman” come to mind. It might be dead before it even gets going.

An unheroic hero who constantly makes shitty choices being written by that Twilight chick? What do you think?
