‘Jessica Jones’ Boss Says Netflix Marvel Show Will Be “Wildly Different” From ‘Daredevil’.

“The mythology of the universe is connected, but they look very different. BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Here’s the latest from the Television Critics Association summer meeting in Beverly Hills, California, at which TV networks and streaming services are presenting details on upcoming programs (all times local): “Rachel Dolezal from the NAACP was a very joyful story for me to watch,” she told journalists Tuesday. “I thought that was beyond ridiculous and the commentary on it was beyond ridiculous.” FILE – In this Aug. 4, 2014 file photo, Chelsea Handler arrives at a panel discussion with the cast of “Orange Is The New Black” at the Directors Guild of America Theater in Los Angeles.

At the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today, Netflix announced some of their upcoming premiere dates, including Longmire: Season 4 on Thursday, September 10th and the new Aziz Ansari comedy series Master of None on Friday, November 6th.

Sandler’s box office clout came into question again after a weak opening weekend in which “Pixels” collected $24 million in the U.S. and slightly more than that in overseas markets.

In the wake of the success of “Daredevil”‘s first season Netflix has already announced an ambitious season two that will feature both Jon Bernthal as The Punisher (“The Walking Dead”) and Elodie Yung as Elektra. “That’s the beauty of the Marvel universe”, he said. Mike Colter also stars as Marvel figure Luke Cage, who will eventually get his own Marvel series on Netflix. “Everything I’ve seen and heard about Jessica Jones is fantastic,” said DeKnight, who also praised the comic book series upon which the series is based – written by Brian Michael Bendis. “He created this incredibly flawed, damaged, interesting character. The drama follows the exploits of superhero-turned-private investigator Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), who works on cases involving people with extraordinary abilities.

Marvel and Netflix teamed up to bring five separate shows to the streaming service, focusing on a group of comic book heroes called The Defenders, a street-level Avengers team. Her new deal with Netflix has her first hosting four documentaries in which she tries to better understand marriage, racism, technology and drugs. “I’m not looking to do a nightly talk show again, that was never my intent. Marvel’s Jessica Jones cast includes Krysten Ritter as the title character, along with Mike Colter (“Luke Cage“), David Tennant (Kilgrave / The Purple Man), Rachael Taylor (“Trish “Patsy” Walker”) and Carrie-Anne Moss (“Harper”). “I think ideally there will be a rhythm of about every six months you’ll get a new season or a new series from the Defenders group”, noted Sarandos. That makes the entire Marvel Netflix initiative a bit more of a long term game than one might have thought when it was first announced, but as long as the quality remains high, people shouldn’t be too upset about it. There is no edge.” Ahead of the show’s late 2015 release, Rosenberg has already received very important feedback from Bendis himself, which she said was very complimentary.

Jessica Jones will be the next superhero to get a Netflix treatment before the end of 2015, followed by Iron Fist and Luke Cage, according to the Associated Press. All four will join forces in a combined “Defenders” season after each has been introduced with its own first season. “Daredevil,” which premiered this spring, has been picked up for a second season. Talking with reporters further after his formal Q&A, Sarandos also addressed the controversy kicked up by complaints from talent on the set of Sandler’s first production, “The Ridiculous Six,” with regard to the depiction of Native Americans. “When people see ‘Ridiculous Six,’ the show will speak for itself,” said Sarandos. “When the movie comes out, people will see it’s fair.” Beyond Sandler, Sarandos used the TCA stage to tout the collective strength of his slate of Netflix original programming, which now includes 16 scripted dramas and comedies. Once all four of the series have been launched, they will crossover in the Defenders, but some series will have multiple seasons before that happens as is the case with Marvel’s Daredevil.

The announcement comes as anticipation for Jessica Jones, the first female superhero to headline her own Marvel project, grows. “I’ve been coming to Comic-Con for 12 years, and I think a lot of fans here have been eager to see more women onscreen for a long time,” Dawn Keiser, a 30-year-old Californian told TIME at San Diego Comic-Con in early July. “I was really happy to see the characters Karen and Claire become these heroes on Daredevil, but I really can’t wait for Jessica Jones to be the hero of her own show.” Krysten Ritter, star of Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, will portray the first major female character with superpowers in a Marvel Studios project. He will appear in season 2 of “Daredevil.” Co-creator and executive producer Tina Fey says being in the Netflix world doesn’t mean she plans to go overboard, noting that many people tell her they watch the show with their children. “Kimmy Schmidt,” about a young woman (Ellie Kemper) rescued from a cult who begins a new life in New York, was originally intended to air on NBC. He explained that the rationale for moving so aggressively into originals — Netflix had just two series online a mere 30 months ago — had less to do with the growing amount of competition in the streaming sector and more to do with differentiating the service with content unavailable anywhere else. Though Captain America character Peggy Carter stars in a 1940s-set Agent Carter on ABC, she has no powers—nor does Black Widow, the only female Avenger in the films.

To highlight the important of Netflix exclusivity, Sarandos noted in response to a question about the Hulu-“Seinfeld” deal that the substantial expense of that content doesn’t prevent the classic comedy from being seen elsewhere, like on TBS and Crackle. “I think there’s a bunch of holes in the exclusivity relative to the economics of that deal,” he said, noting that a simultaneous worldwide release also help curb piracy. If the tone of Daredevil is any indication, Jessica Jones and the other Marvel Netflix shows will be much darker and bloodier than the one audiences know from films like Iron Man and The Avengers. With Netflix’s rapidly growing international expansion, Sarandos also touched on the challenge of programming for the streaming service’s first Asian market, Japan. Doug Petrie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Marco Ramirez (Sons of Anarchy) — who worked closely with DeKnight and creator Drew Goddard in the first season — will both serve as the new showrunners. “They were there from the inception,” DeKnight said. “I’ve told them anything I can do, anything you need from me, you can call, I’m always there.

TV content in Japan, he nevertheless professed optimism that he could crack the market successfully. “I’m not fully convinced that the Japanese have radically different taste than the rest of the world,” he said, citing a lack of choice heretofore in Japan that could end up differentiating Netflix there. Earlier in the day, Netflix made a range of original-series announcements including the third-season renewal of “BoJack Horseman” and premiere dates for “Longmire” and Aziz Ansari vehicle “Master of None.”
