Marvel And ABC Plotting A New "JESSICA JONES-Esque" Female Led Series; NEW WARRIORS Will Be A Comedy

Marvel Television SVP of Original Programming, Karim Zreik, has revealed that a new female-led series is on the way to ABC and confirms that New Warriors will be a comedy while taking a swipe at Powerless.

Agent Carter may have been cancelled after two seasons and that Mockingbird series didn't go anywhere but Jessica Jones has been a big hit for Marvel and Netflix. It probably won't surprise you to learn that between the success of that and the Wonder Woman movie, ABC is now mulling over "more female-skewed shows" according to Marvel Television SVP of Original Programming, Karim Zreik. 

In fact, he's confirmed that something is in fact in development at ABC right now and while he was reluctant to divulge too many details, he did say that it will be a "Jessica Jones-
esque" project.

It's hard to say for sure what that could mean but a character like Jessica Drew (a.k.a. Spider-Woman) would be well-suited to a series like this; it just depends whether or not Marvel owns the hero! 

Zreik also addressed New Warriors, Marvel TV's first comedy. That's been ordered to series by Freeform and he explained why they're now moving into the genre and made something of a dig at DC's cancelled office comedy series Powerless. "It took us time to dip a foot into comedy because it has to be right. Marvel is never going to do an office comedy, you don’t need that." Thoughts?
