A producer, a composer, and an actor all walk into a bar.
No, it's not a joke. It's just what downtime might look like at WhedonCon 2017
now that Steven L. Sears, George Sarah, and Andrew Bowen have joined our ever-growing list of guests. Each one representing a different facet of the world of film and television, these talented men are gearing up to deliver their unique perspectives directly to fans. Just who exactly are they? Well, we're glad you asked. Study up below so you can be ready to get to know the guys in person at The Warner Center Marriott this May.
STEVEN L. SEARS
Writer / Producer
Steven L. Sears began writing and producing television over 30 years ago. Some of his most notable credits include his work on over 100 episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess as supervising producer, co-executive producer and even a contributing writer. Some of his other writing credits include episodes of "Riptide," "The A-Team," "Walker Texas Ranger," and most recently, "Transformers: Rescue Bots." He also served as both executive producer and writer on the jungle-centric "Sheena." Nowadays, Steven also write books.
Steven is returning to WhedonCon for the second year in a row, having delighted crowds as a part of panels like the thought-provoking "Buffy vs. Xena" and the informative "Business of Television: How to Have a Career in the Industry."
Composer / Musician
Electronic composer and multi-instumentalist George Sarah appeared on the first season of Angel as well as the fourth and sixth seasons of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, performing several of his songs disguised as the fictional band Shy (episodes "Beer Bad" and "Wild At Heart") as well as playing in the string quartet in "Hell's Bells." In 2002, he released "Music for Elevators," a collaborative project with Anthony Stewart Head which included vocals from Buffy cast members James Marsters, Amber Benson and Alyson Hannigan. Joss Whedon wrote a song specifically for this release called "Last Time."
George is also returning to WhedonCon after gracing us with his presence last year on the panel "The Music of Buffy."
Andrew Bowen joins us at WhedonCon for the first time this year. Eagle-eyed Whedon fans might recognize Andrew from his role of explosives expert Scott in the Dollhouse episode "Gray Hour." While he may only be a small part of the Whedoverse, his 79 acting credits weave a tapestry across 25 years of film and television (beginning with an appearance on Saved by the Bell in 1992). More recently, he has worked on a variety of projects, such as NCIS and the horror anthology Holiday (currently available on Netflix). Past work includes the short film The Gift, recurring roles on Starz’ Magic City, Criminal Minds, 25 episodes of MAD TV, AMI’s Rock Jocks and the web-series The Division. Andrew also provided the voices of several video game characters, including Johnny Cage in Mortal Kombat X, Josh Birk/NyteBlayde in Saint’s Row IV, and Doc in Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Andrew can be seen in John Asher’s upcoming independent feature film PO, the black comedy All For Nikki, and in Jennifer Garner’s Tribes of Palos Verdes. Also a writer and director, Andrew is currently in post-production on a sci-fi proof-of-concept short for a TV series called N.A.M. 716. and his half hour single-camera comedy series Super… Mann? will be joining The Rogue Initiative production slate for 2017.
