Jackson & Doc NYCC Interview at Newsarama

If you love Jackson & Doc and also videos of Jackson & Doc then have I got a thing for you. Newsarama has put up an interview with the esteemed Venture Bros. creators conducted at the beginning of New York Comic-Con. It's a pretty short interview (about five minutes) but it might just satisfy your burning desire for more Venture Bros. for those five minutes. Maybe.

They asked Jackson and Doc if they had written the 5th season premiere, and they corrected the interviewer that they usually start writing the middle episodes first and then write the premiere later.......does that mean they've already begun writing next season without a contract??

I just hope they truly want to make more VB....because if they do, someone will buy it....even if [as] can't afford it anymore (which I would find unlikely).

No they were just saying that traditionally they write half the season first (say, episodes 2 - 6 or something) and then they write the premiere. If you look at the production numbers, for example, Shadowman 9 is #32 but the previous season's finale (Cremation Creek II) is #26. They wrote five episodes of season three before writing the premiere of season three (this is also part of the reason for the delay between seasons). The interviewer was I think just trying to get them to leak what they are working on, which at the moment I think is nothing (this season's finale should be wrapped up by now).

As far as another network carrying the show, I doubt that would ever happen. It's pretty rare for shows to jump networks at all, and I don't know if Turner would even consider selling it. They own the full rights to the show, by the way, not Jackson & Doc (as far as I know).

For upcoming content it seems like they really do want to make more, but since it's essentially a two-man operation they are both super overworked and I think they just want to take some time off. Jackson also stated that AS is interested in more of the show, so I don't think there will be any issues as far as getting everyone onboard, just a matter of when it happens.

I was just trying to read in between the lines of their response to the question was all....I know they generally write standalone midseason episodes first (the production numbers usually give that away).

A company doesn't have to own the rights of the show to pick it up. Scrubs was produced by ABC but aired on NBC (until the last season). Futurama is still produced by 20th Century Fox, but airs on Comedy Central. If the interest is there....another station could pick up the broadcasting rights (Comedy Central and FX being the likely culprits). I'm just saying you can't rule it out.

I'm still holding out for June of 2012 for Season 5 to start!

Well the difference for Scrubs is that's made by ABC Studios (formerly Touchtone Television) which does make shows that aren't on ABC (though most of them are) and is separate from ABC the station. And Futurama is something Fox doesn't really want to devote airtime to but they recognize that there's still a significant audience so they have funded stuff like the DVD movies and the new series (with help from Comedy Central). So I guess I should say it's unusual for shows to jump but it does happen.

Anyway yes, I want them to confirm a new season too :(

I'd watch 15 to 30 minutes of that, possibly more depending on the medium.

Oh, that would be the best! As long as it didn't have to be a "Between two ferns" type of thing. That would be awesome if they could interview people THEY chose. We'd get interviews with the most obscure, interesting people EVER!

This has nothing to do with the interview, but I just got my Entertainment Earth catalogue, and any order from them right now receives a free Venture Bros. mousepad. Since Entertainment Earth is a main retailer for the action figures and bobbleheads, if anyone out there wants them, now might be the time to buy and get a free mousepad.

Man, Doc and Jackson MUST get sick of the same questions OVER AND OVER!!!
-No they won't give you spoilers, watch the show, Yes it's evolved to more than a Johnny quest parody, it had done that by the end of season 1...........Wow, I'M tired of hearing them be asked those questions. I want someone to address something new.

-I read an interview with Jackson a couple of years ago wherein he went off on a tangent about his dreams of owning a hovercravt as a kid. THAT was funny. Anybody else read that interview?

The problem is that there's only so much you can ask guys who make a TV show. I tried to make the podcast thing I did have newish questions but I ended up seeing a lot of them asked elsewhere around the same time. They're really both at their best when they go off on tangents though.

and I should have mentioned it Mike, that I thought you did a good job in your interview. -And I agree, just let them rant amongst themselves; That's what I love about Venture Commentary. I know alot of people don't like that it really has little to do with the show, but I think it's just fun.

Yeah I was kind of happy that they went all crazy at the end of my interview and started talking about Billy vs. Yoda. That was my favorite part. So yeah, them going off on tangents in the commentary, even show-related tangents, are my favorite thing as well.

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!
