Buffy Vet Jane Espenson Teases Torchwood Sexxxiness, Once Upon a Time's VIP Guest

Genre-TV vet Jane Espenson is a bit of a rock star at events like the San Diego Comic-Con, given that her extensive writer-producer resume includes tours with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tru Calling, Battlestar Galactica and Dollhouse. As such, the scribe was warmly welcomed to hold court in TVLine’s SDCC interview suite, where she looked back on Buffy‘s enduring legacy as well as dished on her latest projects, including an especially sexy coming episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, Game of Thrones, a wild new web series, and ABC’s fall debut Once Upon a Time, where, the co-executive producer told us, a real “princess” of a guest might soon turn up.

  • Ok, first? She is wonderful!!
    And second? I can’t wait for “Once Upon A Time”!! I told myself I would only watch one new show this year (“Ringer”), since I already watch a lot of stuff, but her show seems reaaaally cool.

    Hey, can we have the Little Mermaid too?!

  • It’s a shame that the same people who enjoyed her writing on Buffy and Battlestar Galactica didn’t tune in to enjoy her writing on Caprica. I’m still bitter…

  • I’m sure Once Upon A Time is going to be amazing, but can’t I just steal her for Grimm? They already have David Greenwalt, but Jane’s my favourite Whedonverse writer, and I really want Grimm to do well :)

  • Totally agree with the above comments. I was just waxing on over the weekend about my absolute love for her- easily my favorite person in all of TV. Almsot everything she’s ever been involved with has been must-see TV for me. (She also created warehouse 13- it may be fluff but it’s awesome fluff.) It is because of her and her alone that I’m going to watch Once Upon a Time.
