Episode 20: We are joined by Jenni Warner-Green to talk about the 2015 TV series Jessica Jones. Created by Melissa Rosenberg.Based on the Marvel Comic character, Staring Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, Rachael Taylor and David Tennant.
[We are] very aware this is the first female superhero Marvel’s ever introduced as a lead. But there was never the intention of, “this is an issue series, we’re dealing with issues.” While issues of sexual assault and women in power are all issues that I certainly feel very passionately about taking on, the show’s all about exploring the inner workings of Jessica Jones and her ensemble.
—Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg on approaching “issues”
Jessica Jones is filmed in New York City, in areas that still look like old Hell’s Kitchen.
