Interviews with Esai Morales & Kath Lingenfelter, and some behind-the-scenes clips

What the spiders collected this week:

Bear McCreary has won the IFMCA award for Best Original Score for Television for his work on Human Target. It's his second win in a row. Last year, he nabbed one for Battlestar. Huge congratulations!

Jane Espenson and Drew Z. Greenberg will take part in a panel discussion on TV writing in Los Angeles on March 27. More details here. has an eight-page interview with Kath Lingenfelter (Caprica 1x05, "There Is Another Sky"), who is working on House these days. Snippet:

How did you come to write for the series?

When I first started in television, it was as an assistant to Jason Katims, who at the time was running a show called Roswell on the now defunct WB. The [show’s] staff at that time included Katims, Ronald D. Moore (who went on to adapt Battlestar Galactica for SyFy); Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts—and Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner (House writer/executive producers). Friend and Lerner were like the Grateful Dead. Wherever they were, that’s where I wanted to show up. And I just learned a tremendous amount from them, really, really respected them as writers and individuals. When they got on House, I was so envious and just loved the show and loved their work. And so it’s great to be able to work with them again. Being a huge fan of the show (House) and of the writers, I jumped at the opportunity to learn from them and to join the show. So that was last April.

Ron Moore's pilot for 17th Precinct has landed another really cool Englishman, Eamonn Walker from Oz. Deadline writes that he'll play the lead, Detective Chief Inspector Wilder Blanks.

Teryl Rothery guest starred on Fairly Legal last week. There are some screencaps over at the Superior Pics forum.

Patton Oswalt will be back on United States of Tara when the show returns (Monday, March 28, 10:30pm, Showtime).

Esai Morales attended the 8th Annual Global Green Pre-Oscars Party the other day. He posted a few photos on his Facebook page. Here is an interview from the event:
