Watch: Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Netflix Teaser Promises Feisty Krysten Ritter

Marvel’s comic streak is front and center in the new teaser for Netflix series “Jessica Jones,” which hit the internet Saturday morning.

Starring Krysten Ritter as the eponymous female superhero-turned-detective, the brief clip shows Jones struggling to wake up at 3 p.m., demonstrating her super-strength on the offending alarm clock. Jones’ disorganized lifestyle is also hinted at in the teaser, along with her apparent penchant for booze. The inclusion of Minnie Riperton’s “Loving You” in the clip ups the comedy factor, as well.

Netflix’s original series will debut at 12:01 a.m. PT on Nov. 20 with 13 hourlong episodes. The series will also star David Tennant as villain Kilgrave, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Rachael Taylor as Jessica’s best friend Trish Walker and Carrie-Anne Moss as a no-nonsense ally.

Following the success of “Daredevil” on Netflix, “Jones will be the second of the streaming service’s superhero series in partnership with Marvel. “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” will bow next, leading up to “The Defenders,” in which all the main characters will join forces.

Jessica Jones” is executive produced by series showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and Liz Friedman, along with Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s head of television.
