The company is looking for authenticity in New York for its four 13-episode Netflix miniseries focusing on the four Defender characters of Hell’s Kitchen. Disney will begin filming the Daredevil miniseries in summer 2014 which will be followed by Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

The Marvel series will create at least 3,000 new jobs including up to 400 full-time positions in New York. Netflix and Disney have committed to the four new miniseries which will be followed by a miniseries event called The Defenders in which all four characters team up.

The Daredevil show will begin airing on Netflix in 2015.

DIS stock is down 0.1% and NFLX stock is down 0.8% on Wednesday.
