Oral History Live! with Jane Espenson
Battlestar Galactica writer Jane Espenson joins curator of Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition, Brooks Peck, for an intimate interview. A crucial member to the Battlestar Galactica writing and producing team, Espenson was the executive-producer and co-writer of the Emmy nominated Battlestar Galactica webisodes and an Executive Producer of the spin-off series Caprica.
Espenson grew up in Ames, Iowa where she watched too much television, and at age 13 attempted to write an episode of M*A*S*H. She studied linguistics at UC Berkeley and while still in graduate school submitted spec episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, thereby wedging her tiny foot into the last open door of show business. After winning a Disney Writing Fellowship, she accepted a staff position at Buffy the Vampire Slayer, followed by a year as co-executive producer of Gilmore Girls. She is a co-creator of Syfy's Warehouse 13 and has written for Angel, Firefly, The O.C., Dollhouse, Game of Thrones, Torchwood: Miracle Day, and Caprica, a Battlestar Galactica spin-off. Espenson currently writes for ABC's Once Upon a Time and is a co-writer and the producer of the original web-series, Husbands.
