“Twilight” scribe Melissa Rosenberg will adapt the Marvel comic book “Alias” into a TV show titled “AKA Jessica Jones” for ABC reports Variety.
The comic follows a superhero named Jewel who decides to put away the costume and try for a normal life as her human alter ego Jessica Jones after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
She starts up her own private detective firm, but realises she still wants to help people and ends up coming to the aide of other superheroes. The comic’s name can’t be used due to ABC’s former J.J. Abrams-produced spy series of the same name.
Jeph Loeb, Joe Quesada, Alan Fine and Howard Klein will executive produce the project which will be the first project to be produced by the new Marvel Television division.
