Jane Espenson and Drew Z. Greenberg will be at Meltdown Comics in LA tonight. This is the fourth and final part in a series of writing panels featuring guests like David Fury, Rob Thomas, Steve Levitan, and others. Tonight's panel will also feature LOST's Damon Lindelof. $15 at the door (cash only).

Tickets are sold out, but there's a standby line if you want to try to get in--according to some friendly sources of mine, that's usually a pretty safe bet as long as you arrive early. See you there!

In my ideal world this panel consists of Espenson and Greenberg refusing to even make eye contact with Lindelof until he promises to take character- and plot-continuity seriously, just for a day, just to see what it's like.
As an aspiring tv writer I really wanted to go, but lucked out on getting tickets. (Literally, I looked and then went back to buy, but they were gone.) I would really love if someone going would come back with a play by play. Or if the organization would make a video available to buy. I wonder how early would one have to arrive to get standby tix?
My friend went last weekend, Ara, and he showed up right when the event began and still managed to get in through standby. Now, it was raining and the co-exec producer of LOST wasn't there, but still, I think if you showed up 30-45 minutes early you'd be safe. That's what I'm gonna do, anyway.

And in good news, the series is going to continue through at least the end of April--that same friend spoke to the event organizer and found this out. So you'll have more opportunities should any Whedonesque writers participate again.

Aaw, I can't make it this time. I did see the ones for April already. No Whedon teamsters in sight though. Have fun!

Well, for all interested parties, it was very very cool. Erin Levy of Mad Men showed up as well, and they all chatted about writing and stuff. I believe there's a podcast that you'll be able to hear--they made reference to one--so I won't do a blow-by-blow. But keep an eye out for it.
