Jessica Jones And Hulk Shows Expected In The Next Pilot Season

Two Marvel-derived TV projects are edging closer to the small screen, with ABC planning to have AKA Jessica Jones and a Guillermo Del Toro produced Hulk both make their debut appearances during the next pilot season. ABC’s President Paul Lee made his promise during the TCA today.

All being well, we would likely see them start their seasons in the autumn of 2012. Or they might both go the way of Wonder Woman or, rather unbelivably, the wonderful Locke & Key.

I have reported on both of ABC’s Marvel shows, previously, as they were first uncovered.

Brian Michael Bendis’ walking, talking retcon, Jessica Jones, is headed to television. As the name of her original comics, Alias, has already been taken, the show has been given the name AKA Jessica Jones.

Twilight screenwriter, and sometime Dexter showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is the chief writer on the project. Variety report that it will be the first show from her Tall Girls Productions and, if it keeps moving ahead as it has been, will likely beat Guillermo Del Toro’s Hulk series to the air.

Seems that the Hulk may have nosed up and they’re now neck-a-neck. According to Del Toro, speaking to FEARNet a few weeks ago, he and co-producer David Eick handed in an outline in May, have since revised that, and should by now have turned in a script.

The prospect of a Hulk TV show airing so soon after The Avengers has brought Big Green back to the big screen is an interesting one. Will tele-Hulk benefit from the high profile and massive marketing of cine-Hulk?
