Netflix's slate of original content has been extraordinarily well-received so far, and that's likely related to the people behind the shows. Big names like David Fincher and Kevin Spacey drew people to House of Cards, while the award-winning Orange is the New Black came from Jenji Kohan, the creator of Weeds. A string of collaborations with Marvel will lead off with a new 13-episode Daredevil series in 2015, and now Marvel has announced Drew Goddard will take the helm. He's serving as writer and director of the show's first episode, as well as executive producer and showrunner for the series. Previously he directed and co-wrote (with Joss Whedon) The Cabin in the Woods, and is also credited as a writer for Cloverfield, World War Z, Lost and Alias. The Man Without Fear's big-screen outing didn't go so well and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC has been uneven at best, so we'll see if Goddard can turn things around this time.
