Jane Espenson Pens Season 3

Source : Syfy Portal

Jane Espenson's career has taken so many turns since her 1998-2003 run on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Now she is getting a positive turn, onto "Battlestar Galactica."

TeevBlogger has reported that Espenson is writing an unidentifed episode in the series which rarely uses outside writing talent. Espenson first announced the news in her personal blog.

Besides "Buffy," Espenson -- A Joss Whedonite -- also has written for "Firefly" and "Angel." She's also written for other shows such as "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Gilmore Girls" and "The O.C." Her writing is known for its fast-paced, biting humor. She was responsible for some of the best lines in Buffyverse history, including Harmony's musing about doctors in "The Harsh Light of Day."

"Hey, I don't have a pulse," she said in the episode. "Cool. Can we eat a doctor and get a stethoscope so I can hear my heart not beating?" Also in the works now, beyond BSG, Espenson has some episodes of the animated series "The Batman" coming up, co-written with fellow "Buffy" alum Doug Petrie.

Espenson was a 2003 Hugo award winner, along with Drew Goddard, for the "Buffy" episode "Conversations With Dead People." That episode also won the Best Episode/Television category in the SyFy Genre Awards that same year. - Article by Sherri Lonon
