The viewers of the TV series ''Jessica Jones'' On Netflix were so happy to hear that the shooting of the series has started and Krysten Ritter is busy shooting for back to back episodes. The other happy news was that Melissa Rosenberg, the developer and showrunner of the TV series and the cast of Jessica Jones spoke onstage at The 75th Annual Peabody Awards Ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street.

In 2015, this TV series was one of the winners in the Annual Peabody Awards. ''In 2015, superheroes were everywhere in American media - with both DC and Marvel extending their franchises through epic feature films and long-form tv series. Many of these projects enjoyed commercial success but not critical acclaim, which is one of many reasons why Marvel's Jessica Jones is a story that matters'' confirmed the official site of Peabody Awards.

''Show-runner Melissa Rosenberg took a subplot from the original comics series about Kilgrave, a character who uses his mental abilities to bend others to his will, and turns it into a season-long exploration of how a powerful woman can reclaim her life and stand up against her abuser. David Tennant's Kilgrave is at once charming and terrifying, a man who does evil things but does not see himself as evil'' is what the article had to say further.

''Krysten Ritter helps us to discover the strengths and vulnerability of Jessica, a hard-boiled private detective who has rejected the role of superhero but must still figure out how to over-come the evil that threatens her, her friends and her community. This genre-bending program (one part superhero saga, one part neo-noir) helps to lay a foundation for other planned ventures by Netflix into this particular corner (Harlem and Hell's Kitchen) within the larger Marvel universe. For deploying a popular genre to ask unpopular questions about power and consent, for constructing such vivid and compelling characters and putting them through the wringer, Marvel's Jessica Jones earns a Peabody Award'' was the complete description of the reasons why the TV series won the award.
