This series has a slightly different premise to other Marvel properties. Main character Jessica Jones (Breaking Bad's Krysten Ritter) discovers she has powers, uses them to help people but is a failure, causing more problems than she solves. She gives up on crime-fighting with powers, restricting their use and instead operates as a normal freelance investigator. She is reluctantly drawn back into using her powers after meeting fellow sort-of superhero Luke Cage (Million Dollar Baby's Mike Colter) and being reunited with Kilgrave (ex-Doctor Who David Tennant), a villain who does not see himself as such.
This is the second of four TV series which will build up, Avengers style, to a big crossover event series. The first was Daredevil (which returns for a second season in the spring of 2016) and the second is Luke Cage, which will debut later in the year. The fourth, Iron Fist, will likely debut in 2017 ahead of the Defenders crossover series in late 2017 or some time in 2018.
All thirteen episodes of Jessica Jones will be released by Neflix on 20 November.
