"We both have a script a piece, we probably need one more each, or five total, before we start making the show," says Publick (he and Hammer tend to write individual episodes on their own). "Hopefully, in two months at the most, we'll start up."
Also a reminder, I'm still looking for awesome folks to volunteer to cover Dragon*Con. I have someone willing to write an article or two but if you want to attend the Venture Bros. panel (or other Venture events) and also enjoy taking photos and having them appear on this web site, please drop me a line!
We owe the fans more than 'okay' writing. We owe them our best effort, so we've always tried to hold our own feet to the fire as far as the quality of our work and stuff like that. Sometimes it helps to be under the gun when production is actually moving and sometimes it hurts us. Last season was a little too rough on me in the fact that we were always behind and were constantly late with the scripts and there was never a chance to catch up and feel okay.There's lots more, so go check it out.
We're working on getting a physical CD (with bonus video content) available in the adultswim online store soon, hopefully.And don't forget the special itself will air this Sunday night after a lengthy Venture Bros. marathon.
The official panel will contain Doc Hammer, James Urbaniak and Astro-Base Cadet, 2nd Class, Ken Plume as a moderator. Sadly Jackson will not be there this year, sorry to disappoint his fan club, but Doc and Urbaniak will probably solve crimes or something to make up for it.
I'll have a more complete schedule with various Venture Bros.-related events and Adult Swim activities up probably in the next couple of days. And for those of you attending who are also super awesome, there's a chance to contribute to coverage for this site.
Please read on for more specific info, but if you're interested please email me with samples of your work and I'll get back to you.
If you haven't listened to Ken Plume's chat with Jackson yet (and you ought to if you haven't) there's some valuable info buried in there about "From The Ladle To The Grave". Namely that a five-song EP of Jacket (Shallow Gravy's lone song) and 'various interpretations of Jacket' will be up on iTunes on August 23rd. The music video, screened at Comic-Con, will also be on iTunes as well as a sort of teaser for the special.
And for even more Shallow Gravy insanity, Adult Swim has also put up their second promo for the special the marathon that precedes it:
And remember, the special airs at midnight on the night of August 28th.
