Burbank, Calif. » Netflix is doubling down on original content, saying it will buy four new live-action TV series from Disney’s Marvel and bring some lesser-known superheroes to the small screen.

The Internet streaming giant ordered multiple years of original programming that will start running on its service in 2015. The first series will focus on the character Daredevil, followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

The four series of 13 episodes each will culminate in a miniseries called "The Defenders."

The deal builds on a tight relationship between the two companies already. The pair announced last year that Netflix Inc. will offer up The Walt Disney Co.’s latest movies starting with films released in theaters in 2016.
