    WA – Husbands Signing

    Husbands4Jane Espenson and Brad Bell, creators of Husbands, sign the new graphic novel at the University Bookstore on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 6:00 p.m!

    Press Release:

    Written by Husbands creators Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Brad Bell, this is the comic-book continuation of the sitcom phenom. Husbands tells the story of famous gay newlyweds Brady and Cheeks, who sparked a media firestorm when they woke up legally wed after a drunken Vegas weekend. Now, a mystical wedding gift launches the couple on a series of adventures-a tongue-in-cheek journey through iconic genre realms-filled with obstacles that threaten to tear them apart. Follow Brady and Cheeks into a superhero showdown, a fairytale fantasy, a Holmesian mystery, an epic galactic battle, a madcap high school romp, and a saucy secret-spy thrill ride. Includes bonus “making of” material and a special introduction.

    Jane Espenson grew up in Ames, Iowa where she watched too much television. At age 13 she attempted to write an episode of M*A*S*H. It didn’t work out. She attended college at UC Berkeley, studying linguistics as an undergrad and graduate student. While in grad school she submitted spec episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and got her tiny foot wedged in the last open door of show business. After winning a spot in the Walt Disney writers’ fellowship, she worked in sitcoms for a number years. Her first staff job at a drama was her job at Buffy the Vampire Slayer, followed by a year as Co-Executive Producer at Gilmore Girls, and brief stints as Co-Executive Producer of the cancelled FOX dramas Tru Calling and The Inside. She is currently Co-Executive Producer of the sitcom Jake in Progress, now airing on ABC on Monday nights. You can follow Jane on Twitter @JaneEspenson.

    Brad Bell is showrunner and star of Husbands, the newlywed sitcom which made history as the first show online to be honored by prestigious television institute The Paley Center. Husbands remains the only new media series featured by The New Yorker, in a rave review that hailed Bell as “the standout.” Bell has worked as a satirist and recording artist since 2008, performing on YouTube and iTunes as the online persona Cheeks, and building a dedicated fan base. In 2012, Bell became Consulting Producer for VH1′s Pop Up Video. You can follow Cheeks on Twitter @gocheeksgo.
