Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that Carrie-Anne Moss will star in Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015 following Marvel's Daredevil. Moss plays a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica... if Jessica doesn't completely alienate her first. Moss will star opposite Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia "Trish" Walker) in the Netflix original series. Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, who had this to say about the casting in a statement.
"Throughout her career, Carrie-Anne has embodied a wide range of characters in a compelling and relatable way and I have no doubt she will bring that talent to A.K.A. Jessica Jones."
Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel's Head of Television, had this to say in his statement.
"Carrie-Anne has proven her ability to play complex characters with deep and layered inner lives. Her interaction with Jessica Jones will be one of the many highlights of the series."
Moss starred as Trinity in all three films of The Matrix trilogy, and in her 25-year career she has also starred in Memento, Chocolat and Disturbia, as well as more than two dozen other feature films. Past TV credits include roles on Vegas and Crossing Lines.
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix. For more information on Marvel's A.K.A.
