APE 2011 Swings in to San Francisco October 1-2

The Alternative Press Expo (APE), the country’s largest alternative and independent comics convention, arrives in San Francisco this weekend, October 1–2, for what promises to be one of the most exciting events to date. Every year APE boasts an impressive guest list, and this year’s lineup is no exception. Special guests appearing include award-winning cartoonists Shannon Wheeler, Kate Beaton, Daniel Clowes, and Adrian Tomine. APE is held at the Concourse Exhibition Center, 635 8th Street in San Francisco.

Additional special guests include Matthew Thurber, whose book 1-800 MICE makes its West Coast premiere at the event. The new book is a collection of the critically acclaimed first five issues of Thurber’s comic book series, with 64 pages of new material. And special guest Craig Thompson also makes a long-anticipated return to the graphic novel medium with his new book Habibi debuting this week. Habibi marks seven years since Thompson’s Blankets, which won numerous industry honors in 2004, including two Eisner Awards.

“We are excited to have such inspiring and accomplished guests at APE this year,” said David Glanzer, APE spokesperson and director of marketing and public relations for parent company Comic-Con International.

In addition to the impressive guest list, APE features two full days of comics programs geared around the show’s special guests and various aspects of independent and alternative comics. These programs promise to be fun, informative, and enlightening conversations with some of the top creative talent working in comics today. And if that were not enough, APE also offers a fascinating, and informative group of hands-on workshops covering everything from comics writing to world building, self-publishing, and bookbinding.

Comedy Central® and the New York Television Festival Partner to Launch the “Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition”

Comedy Central and the New York Television Festival (NYTVF) announced an innovative program seeking original comedic short pilots and accompanying shooting scripts from independent artists and production companies. The top submissions will be reviewed by the network and the winning producer will receive a $7,500 development deal with Comedy Central.

“While it may seem like a generous gesture of support to an emerging generation of creators, we are really hoping to find something compelling for very cheap,” said Kent Alterman, Head of Original Programming and Production, Comedy Central.

“The NYTVF is thrilled to partner with Comedy Central on this new development initiative and open industry doors for our community of independent artists,” said NYTVF founder Terence Gray. “As television and new media continue to take chances and push the boundaries of comedy, this is an exciting time for great comedic voices to get their shot. The NYTVF has a solid tradition of finding great talent and we look forward to sharing the best, weirdest, wildest, most hilarious and off-the-wall selections with Comedy Central.”

The initiative is open to U.S. residents age 18 and over who do not have any contractual commitments preventing them from entering into an exclusive development deal with Comedy Central. Comedic concepts not currently under development at a network, studio or major production company and meeting all other criteria in the Official Rules are eligible for the competition.

Completed entries will include a four (4) – eleven (11) minute first act of an original comedy pilot and the accompanying ten (10) to twenty-five (25) page shooting script of the episode. Official contest rules and dates can be accessed through the contest Web site located at http://www.nytvf.com/2012_comedycentral.htm. The NYTVF will be accepting entries from October 2011 through January 2012.

A screening committee of NYTVF officials will narrow the pool of entrants down to 25 finalists which will be presented to Comedy Central development executives. One winner will be selected by Comedy Central and he/she will receive a development deal from the network. Additionally, Comedy Central may elect to enter into development agreements with additional finalists and all 25 selected creators will be invited to participate in the 2012 New York Television Festival as Official Artists.

The Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition marks the first announced development partnership for the NYTVF’s 2012 season. The 2011 development season, which wraps during this week’s New York Television Festival, included the NYTVF’s annual independent pilot competition, which offered sponsored development awards from IFC, FX, MTV and Syfy as well as NYTVF Pitch with partners Sundance Channel, MSN and SevenOne International. Additionally, both FOX and A&E partnered with the NYTVF for individual development initiatives in 2011 – the 4th Annual FOX-NYTVF Comedy Script Contest and the inaugural A&E Unscripted Development Pipeline, respectively.

An Evening with American Dad!

An Evening with American Dad!
Wednesday, September 21, 2011
7:00 pm PT

In Person

Seth MacFarlane, Executive Producer; Voice of “Stan Smith” & “Roger”
Mike Barker, Executive Producer
Matt Weitzman, Executive Producer
Kara Vallow, Producer
Wendy Schaal, “Francine Smith”
Scott Grimes, “Steve Smith”
Rachael MacFarlane, “Hayley Smith”
Dee Bradley Baker, “Klaus”
Moderator: Chris Hardwick

Good morning, USA! The animated Smiths of 43 Cherry Lane, Langley Falls, Virginia, led by patriarch Stan Smith, a rabid but clueless CIA agent, are just your typical American brood: devoted wife, dorky son, political-activist daughter, plus a sardonic alien and an anthropomorphic goldfish with the brain of a German Olympian—understanding of course that they inhabit the twisted terrain of Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, and two former writers from that show, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman. Blending satire with good old-fashioned (and not) family comedy, American Dad! has been described by MacFarlane as “sort of a Family Guy meets All in the Family kind of show.” Whatever it is, it’s working; American Dad!is a legit cult hit about to embark on its seventh season on Fox. Join us for a preview screening and chat with the voice cast and creative team.

Tweet questions to Seth and team for the event with #hululive.
