Espenson Joins Tru Calling Team 

Okay, I'm a little behind on this one, but at the end of May came the announcement that Jane Espenson is joining Tru Calling. Espenson was a writer and producer for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as a number of other projects including Angel, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Ellen, Ripper and DS9. She has a two-year deal with 20th Century Fox TV which includes co-executive producing Tru Calling as well as new project development, probably of sci-fi projects.

Among the Buffy episodes she wrote are: Storyteller, First Date, Conversations With Dead People, Life Serial, After Life, Intervention, Triangle, Superstar, and A New Man.

I'm hoping this bodes well for the continuing improvement of the show I love to dis. Maybe they could also spruce up the official website a bit. The intro is way to slow and long, the music is too new age-y, and the whole thing is just clunky and unappealing. Sounds kind of like my opinion of some of the episodes. But I keep hoping. I saw glimmers toward the end of the season. Please don't let me down!
