All 13 episodes of the second season of Jessica Jones on Netflix will be directed by women.

That’s according to executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg who was speaking during a conference – Transforming Hollywood 7: Diversifying Entertainment – last week.

Rosenberg said she had wanted to increase the number of female directors for the second season but then someone else involved in the production suggested booking only women.

She described it as “a conscious decision and it’s very important that showrunners do that“, she said.

As for the actual scripts and stories for season 2, Rosenburg told Variety that scripts were in the midst of being completed and shooting was set for next year.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer.
