Jeph LoebMarvel Comics is having a superb summer at the box office, but that hasn't kept them from aggressively continuing TV development.

At Comic-Con 2011, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel's TV division, revealed new details about 'AKA Jessica Jones' and 'Cloak & Dagger,' and announced 'Mockingbird' for ABC Family. As we previously reported, Marvel and Disney are working on a bevy of projects for both ABC and ABC Family.

According to Comic Book Resources, ABC's 'AKA Jessica Jones' will feature Marvel superheros Luke Cage and Carol Danvers alongside Jessica Jones. The show, based on Brian Michael Bendis's 'Alias' comic book about a superhero-turned private eye, is still in development at ABC.

Over on ABC Family, 'Cloak & Dagger' will be set in post-Katrina New Orleans and focus on "two teenagers who discover each other and find their powers both complement and complicate their lives."

Loeb announced 'Mockingbird,' a new show based on the comic character of the same name. The show will feature Bobbi Morse, known as Mockingbird in the comics, who is recruited as a spy for a secret organization. In the comics, the character is an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and married to Hawkeye.
