SUNDAY, December 2nd:
2PM - Husbands: Beyond Broadcast
Propelled by creators Jane Espenson and Brad Bell, Husbands completed its second award-winning season this year and launched a successful digital comic book series. The panelists, Espenson, Bell and co-star Sean Hemeon, will talk about the making of the series, its past and future, and the books.
4PM - Women Make (Queer) Genre
Many of the depictions of queer characters in mainstream genre fiction come thanks to the effort of one group: women. Female writers have done an incredible job in bringing gay characters to the screen and to the page, depicting our lives as part of the same extraordinary adventures alongside mainstream counterparts. Moderator Deborah Warner interviews fellow writers Jane Espenson, Wendy Pini and others in this open talk about what it means to be a woman creating genre entertainment to both mainstream and queer audiences.
