Just two months after joining the cast of the Netflix TV series Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter was spotted on the New York City set during the first day of production. Unfortunately, we don't see the actress in her superhero attire, but, given the nature of the show, which is set after she retired as a costumed crime fighter, it isn't known if we will see the actress in costume during the 13-episode first season. At any rate, production is under way in Bronx, New York. As you can see in one of the photos, the production appears to be shooting under the code name "Violet."
Krysten Ritter will be joined by David Tennant (Kilgrave), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), and Rachael Taylor (Patricia "Trish" Walker) and the latest casting addition, Carrie-Anne Moss. While the identity of Carrie-Anne Moss's character was not revealed, she was described as, "a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica... if Jessica doesn't completely alienate her first." Melissa Rosenberg serves as showrunner and executive producer on the series, alongside Jeph Loeb.
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. Netflix hasn't announced when Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones will debut yet, but we know that the first Netflix/Marvel series, Daredevil, is debuting on April 10. Take a look at the set photos below, and stay tuned for more on Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones as production continues.
