Marvel seemed to be trying to tie the Netflix series to it's original source, Alias by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos. They couldn't call the show Alias because of the Jennifer Garner series from years ago… with Netflix hosting older TV shows, there would be some confusion. But the A.K.A. Jessica Jones was quite a mouthful too.

The series also stars Rachael Taylor as Trish WalkerDavid Tennant as Kilgrave the Purple Man and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. It is written and produced by Melissa Rosenberg.
