Following a successful Kickstarter campaign a total of $81,752 to help Rachel Caine achieve her dream of taking her Morganville universe from page to screen for the first time.
Earlier this year the online TV channel and multimedia platform Geek and Sundry announced they were partnering with Rachel’s Pen Ultimate Productions to provide the remainder of the funding needed for the series and then show it in full and for free on their YouTube channel.
Morganville enjoyed its world premiere this past weekend at MCM London Comic Con where lucky guests were not only treated to the first two episodes of the series in full but series creator Rachel Caine was also in attendance for a panel with cast members:
Amber Benson “Amelie”
Robert Picardo “Oliver”
Lindsay Seidel “Claire Danvers”
Jordan Farris “Shane Collins”
Ben Easter “Michael Glass”
There was a Morganville screening and panel on both Saturday and Sunday I was lucky enough to attend the Saturday panel and along with other fans got the chance to meet Rachel, Amber, Robert, Lindsay, Jordan and Ben it was a great event and I’m so glad I got a chance to be part of it. I just returned from London last night and I hope to be able to post a photo or two from the panel tomorrow.
Today saw the release of episode one (The Glass House) and episode two (Bite Me) on the Geek and Sundry YouTube channel. Click the link below to watch both for free now. Geek and Sundry will show new episode(s) each day as part of their “Halloweek” celebrations.
Here is the direct link to Geek and Sundry’s Morganville page on YouTube where all the subsequent episodes will be posted throughout the week for fans to watch.
I also plan to post direct links to the new episode(s) each day this week on the AmberBenson.TV Twitter feed and Facebook page to help you find them even faster.
Having already seen episodes one and two I can tell you this series looks fantastic and is sure to be a hit with fans. The entire AmberBenson.TV team would like to congratulate Rachel, Amber and the entire cast and crew on working so hard to bring the series to the screen. I'd encourage anyone to check out the series for themselves whether you're a long time Morganville fan or a newcomer to watch the series and spread the word. As I said above I was lucky enough to meet Rachel and she was also quick to thank every single person who contributed to the Kickstarter campaign for making the series possible.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to watch episodes one and two again I could swear I've seen that man on one of those missing persons posters somewhere before. ;)
