SDCC 2012: Espenson: An Anagram For Openness

At a little before noon on Sunday, the last day of SDCC 2012, Jane Espenson (BSG, Buffy), Brad “Cheeks” Bell (Pop-Up Video), Jenna Busch (Moviefone Minute), Sean Hemeon (True Blood), and Jeff Greenstein (Will and Grace) file onto the stage of Room 7AB and begin setting up for the panel “Espenson: An Anagram For Openness” (and I just realized that’s not metaphorical).  The room is packed and the audience settling in eagerly awaits the discussion to follow which will focus on Jane and Brad’s new online series, Husbands, called the “future of TV” by Ira Glass.

The panel starts with Jane and Brad talking about the genesis of Husbands, and how the idea of newlyweds was the idea that locked the show into place. They referenced I Love Lucy as a classic example.
