Just yesterday saw Krysten Ritter emerging as the frontrunner for Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ Netflix series, with Mike Colter somewhat less certain to be our ‘Luke Cage,’ and today Marvel has officially followed suit to confirm Ritter’s role as the superpowered private detective. Not only that, but the Netflix series to follow ‘Daredevil’ has a shiny new title, becoming Marvel’s ‘AKA Jessica Jones.’

Though Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ has yet to reveal an image of its titular hero in costume, we’d recently learned the second of the ‘Defenders’ series, ‘Jessica Jones’ had begun its casting search. We were split between ‘True Detective’'s Alexandra Daddario and ‘Breaking Bad’'s Krysten Ritter, but the latter seems to have won the role, with ‘The Following’'s Mike Coulter potentially acting as our ‘Luke Cage.’

We were happy to see 'Breaking Bad' and 'Don't Trust the B' star Krysten Ritter given proper due with NBC's 'Mission Control,' a Will Ferrell-Adam McKay '60s astronaut comedy in the vein of 'Anchorman,' but wouldn't you know it, the launch has already been canceled. NBC has opted to scrap 'Mission Control' ahead of its midseason debut altogether.

We're not happy with all of NBC's renewal and cancellation decisions today, but at least one of its newest offerings for the coming season will soften the blow. NBC's "Anchorman Astronaut" period comedy 'Mission Control' with 'Breaking Bad' star Krysten Ritter has officially been given a series order under the watchful eye of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay themselves. Plus, what else has NBC given the green light to?

We figured that NBC was blowing a bit of smoke in touting both Will Ferrell and the 'Anchorman' name for its new astronaut comedy pilot 'Mission Control,' but its first major casting is pure crystal. 'Breaking Bad' and 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' star Krysten Ritter will blast off into the leading lady role, but will 'Mission Control' fall apart on the landing pad?

Only three episodes remain in all of 'Breaking Bad' and while the show's final hours have grown so tense and action-packed that the latest preview for next week's episode "Ozymandias" didn't release a shred of new footage, outdoing even 'Mad Men''s notoriously spoiler-tight promos. A new rumor has emerged however, that suggests 'Breaking Bad's greatest characters will return Sunday night, in the spoiler to end all spoilers!

Though the most recent pilot season gave us plenty to work with in the future, we were disappointed to learn that Craig Robinson's post-'Office' vehicle had failed to earn a pickup, as well as Krysten Ritter's 'Assistance.' Now, NBC has issued new hope that either drama could remain alive for a potential pickup down the line.
