Jessica Jones Showrunner Leaves Series For Warner Bros. TV Deal

The Marvel character Jessica Jones became a well-known name when her very own series, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, premiered on Netflix. Fitting in perfectly in the “grounded” Marvel world set up by Marvel’s Daredevil series, Jones provided a more psychological adventure in the world of enhanced beings. Much of that success is attributed to the series showrunner, Melissa Rosenberg, who has directed the course thus far for the private investigator with special abilities.

However, now the PI “Defender” will have to move on without Rosenberg’s vision. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Rosenberg has accepted a reported eight-figure deal with Warner Bros. Television. The deal includes creating and developing multiple projects for the indie studio, which outbid Netflix’s offer to keep her. It is believed that Rosenberg was already looking to move on from the series once she completed the upcoming third season of Jessica Jones, which should be slated for release next year. Regarding the deal, Rosenberg had this to say:

“All of my attention remains with the extraordinary cast, writers and production team of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, until the completion of season three. It continues to be a career highlight working with my partners at Marvel Television and Netflix. We’re extraordinarily grateful to the viewers who have supported us every step of the way on Jessica’s journey, which is so beautifully realized by Krysten Ritter and the amazing cast including Rachael Taylor, Eka Darville and Carrie-Anne Moss. We have so many talented storytellers in every area of this show, who I’m honored to call friends and collaborators. As I look ahead after this season, I’m thrilled that I will be able to explore new projects with the talented team at Warner Bros. Television and push myself in new challenging creative directions.”

Rosenberg’s television credits include Dexter, Ally McBeal, The O.C., Party Of Five and Boston Public. In the motion picture world, she wrote the screenplays for all five Twilight films as well as the first Step Up film. In 2011, she created her own production company, Tall Girl’s Productions.
