Updates, updates, updates! In the last few weeks, we’ve been busy little beavers!

- As we prepare to go into production on season two, we’ve been doing lots of awesome press! Last weekend, GN creator JP Larocque sat down with the folks over at The GNERD Podcast to discuss everything from the cancellation of Happy Endings to the perverted things one could do with the ability to freeze time.

The cast and crew also had the chance to chat with The Canadian Nerd last week about all sorts of fun nerdiness, plus we got to do it inside Toronto comics staple The Hairy Tarantula. (That sounds like a euphemism for what happens at the end of the night at a bear club, but trust us — it’s not.) Both interviews will be posted very soon, at which point you’ll be able to find them here!

And below is a link to a brand-spanking new interview JP did with our friends over at Geeks OUT. Lots of hints about what to expect in this season’s episodes, plus jokes about topping yourself, so check it out here!

- A few weeks back we had the opportunity to be a part of an exciting project with the folks over at Super Knocked Up. We shot a fun crossover episode! Starring Robert Keller (Ralphie) and John Mac Schnurr (Burnup), watch what happens when a mission to deliver a package turns into something… unexpected. Check out an exclusive behind-the-scenes photo below!
