Marvel Television and Netflix have revealed S.J. Clarkson will direct the first two episodes of Marvel’s Jessica Jones.
Clarkson’s credits include Vinyl at HBO, Dig at USA, Hunted for BBC/HBO/Cinemax, and Netflix’s own Orange is the new Black.
Clarkson will also serve as executive producer for the series premiere.
In Marvel’s Jessica Jones, ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check.
All 13 one-hour episodes of Marvel’s Jessica Jones premiere Nov. 20 at 12:01 a.m. PT on Netflix.
