Another comic book series? Well, Netflix’s new offering, which debuts its first season on Friday, is a little different. The female protagonist is a tough, damaged, boozy cookie — a former superhero who opens a detective agency.
Jessica is more interested in paying the rent then saving the city and can be a bit of an “asshole,” according to star Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23). Critics are eating up this female-led Marvel series, which also stars The Matrix’s Carrie-Anne Moss as a lesbian client of Jessica’s.
Editor’s Npte: Gilmore Girls fans may also recognize Ritter – she played Rory’s college friend Lucy on the show.
