Melissa Rosenberg, showrunner on Marvel and Netflix’s “Jessica Jones,” has signed a multi-year, eight-figure deal with Warner Bros. Television where she’ll oversee the production of a number of new series.
Rosenberg will continue to be credited as executive producer on “Jessica Jones” with her remaining fully involved in the currently in the works third season which will air next year. After that, the show’s cast and production team will carry on without her under a new showrunner.
Rosenberg’s move comes as Warners is focused on buffing out its offerings with its new streaming service in mind. It also marks a rare reversal with a showrunner leaving Netflix as opposed to joining the streaming service like so many have done in recent months.
