Notes from Book Expo America and BookCon

Book Expo America and BookCon were held from May 27-31 at the Javits Center in New York, featuring a variety of book publishers showing off their upcoming wares, while some movie adaptations, including films of John (The Fault in Our Stars) Green’s Paper Towns and Emma Donoghue’s Room, grabbed the bulk of the attention left behind by a wave of YouTube book stars, including Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart and Connor Franta. However, back in the world of printed entertainment, there was plenty for fans of movies and TV to check out.

Eagleheart: Paradise Rising

[adult swim]’s oddball crime “drama”, Eagleheart, starring Chris Elliott, Maria Thayer and Brett Gelman, returns for its third season November 14, with a new twist, as a season-long plot will wind its way through the show’s traditionally stand-alone 15-minute episodes. At New York ComicCon, Elliott and Thayer, along with the core creative crew of Michael Koman, Andrew Weinberg and Jason Woliner, sat down with me to talk about the new set-up and how many people then can kill in about two hours, as well as what it’s like working with their Georgian overlords and where you can get your Breaking Bad fix now.

And most porn stars don't have their own web series documenting the Dungeons and Dragons games they lead as Dungeon Master. Together with his girlfriend, adult model Mandy Morbid, he stars in I Hit It With My Axe, a show on that's gained a lot of interest due to the concept: watch D&D as played by a group of people from in and around the porn industry.

The Pete Holmes Show: “We’re Not Here to Tell You How Much the World Sucks”

The one thing late-night TV needed was another tall comedian on TBS, so Conan O’Brien has called upon podcaster excellente Pete Holmes (You Made it Weird) to bring his brand of thoughtful, positive, yet intensely silly comedy to the airwaves following his own show, in the half-hour The Pete Holmes Show, which kicks off a four-nights-a-week schedule October 28th. I had a chance to sit down with Holmes, his executive producer Nick Bernstein and supervising producer Oren Brimer at the New York ComicCon to talk about how his show will make your life better, why podcasting is like a romantic relationship and what it’s like to see a two-story image of himself having sex with the sky.
