All 13 episodes of Marvel’s Jessica Jones will premiere on streaming service Netflix on Friday Nov. 20. Although the series, starring Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust The B in Apartment 23), shares a universe, executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg said, “Jessica Jones is a very, very different show than Daredevil,” and added that Jones is an “incredibly flawed, damaged, and interesting character regardless of gender.” The second show in a shared Netflix-Marvel universe, Jessica Jones will be followed by Luke Cage and Iron Fist, with all four characters eventually coming together for Marvel’s The Defenders.


MISS PIGGY WILL DATE JOSH GROBAN IN THE MUPPETS

Singer and occasional actor Josh Groban (Crazy Stupid Love) will guest star on The Muppets this fall as Miss Piggy’s new flame. This is not Groban’s first foray into the world of The Muppets; he had a cameo in last year’s Muppets Most WantedThe Muppets premieres on ABC on Tuesday, September 22 at 8 p.m.

The British import Black Mirror made a splash earlier this year when the first two seasons were added to the Netflix. Now, rumor has it that the genre-defying anthology series is going back into production as a Netflix original series, with England’s Channel 4 having a first-look deal on new episodes. The last episode of the series was a special called White Christmas, featuring Mad Men star Jon Hamm.
