Marvel Comics TV adaptation AKA Jessica Jones could find a home on cable, writer Melissa Rosenberg has claimed.

The project has been in-the-works since late 2010 and was first developed as a pilot at ABC, but Twilight scribe Rosenberg told IGN that a cable network might be a better fit.

"I would love [for the show to air on ABC]," she said. "That would be fabulous. But you know, I don't know if it's an ABC show. It might be a cable show, really."

AKA Jessica Jones is based on Marvel's adult-themed comic series Alias, created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos.

"The graphic novel is the first one that Marvel did that was meant to serve an adult audience," Rosenberg explained. "I toned it down a little bit for network, but it's very, very easy to translate that into cable."

Another comic co-created by Bendis - Powers - also has a long-gestating television adaptation in the works at cable network FX.

ABC and Marvel have also reportedly put Guillermo del Toro's Hulk TV series on hold, with the Pacific Rim director claiming that he has been met with "complete radio silence" since the release of Joss Whedon's movie blockbuster The Avengers.
