Interview of Creator and Director of web series Jeff Burns part 2

G&E: Without giving away any spoilers what can we expect in season 2?
J.B: We're going to focus even more on the relationship between Jessica and Michael.The baby arrives and that plus the fact that the two of them are now living together adds even more conflict to their relationship.But we'll also see more of those sparks of potential that maybe these two enemies have a shot of working things out.We meet the rest of the superhero team Michael is a part of and Jessica to her great dismay,is thrust into their lives making it harder for her to continue being a villain.Oh and a lot more comedy in season 2!
G&E: Now time for a silly question,what 2 comicbook characters would you like to see have a one night stand and end up with a baby?
J.B: Oh, that's an awesome question! I can't believe no one's asked me that before.I actually have a bunch of answers,but ill just list four: Batman & Wonder Woman, Spider-man &Black Cat, Daredevil & Elektra,Thor & She-Hulk (this one just cause it's one of the most ridiculous pairings i could think of and i think She-Hulk would be an awesome and hilarious mom)
G&E: OK now for food questions,what's your weakness as far as food goes?

J.B: Chocolate chip cookies.I'm sure I've eaten half a box in one sitting before.Has to be with milk though,my favorite drink ever!
G&E: LOL,what's the best thing you ever ate and what's the worst?

J.B: There's this famous fried chicken place in Saratoga Springs,NY.called Hattie's.Their fried chicken is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten,they've even been featured on The Food Channel.If you're ever in Saratoga check them out!One of the the worst is probably when i was a kid and went with my friend to his relatives house for Thanksgiving and his relatives microwaved the turkey,Microwaved turkey: yum.
G&E: mmmmm,microwave turkey,thanks for answering my questions Jeff,can't wait for season 2.

Interview of Creator and Director of web series SuperkKnocked Up JeffBurns Part 1

For those of you that don't know SuperKnocked Up is a new comedy web series that you can find on the website or on YouTube,each episode is bout 5 minutes each.The story is about super-villain Jessica James played by Natalie Bain wakes up after a one night stand to find her greatest nemesis superhero Captain Amazing played by Mark Pezzula laying next to her and later the 2 enemies find out she's pregnant.Jeff Burns creator of the series agreed to do a interview so if you want to go check out the show 1st then come back and read this.
G&E: Jeff how did you come up with this idea?
J.B: I was taking an awesome online screenwriting class through Screenwriting U ( and one of the 1st task we had was to come up with a unique concept.I've always loved superheroes and comics,so I was playing around with different superhero ideas.And one of those ideas was what would happen if a superhero and a super-villain had a baby together.And i just loved the idea and knew i had to write it!
G&E: Was it originally going to be a web series or did you shop it around as a TV series?

J.B.:I actually originally wrote it as a feature,the plan was to sell it as a movie.But i had been focusing on writing for a few years and realized how much i missed making films.I love writing,but i consider myself first and foremost a filmmaker.I don't just want to write i want to produce and direct my scripts.So i decided to make it myself as a web series with super-talented cast and crew i knew.

G&E: Did it take along time to find the right actors cause i love the chemistry between Natalie Bain and Mark Pezzula
J.B.: I knew i wanted Mark right from the beginning,we've been friends for a while and he started out as crew and then switched to acting.And working on other films and seeing him act,I got to see firsthand his progression as an actor.I had worked with Natalie on one of my short films,Chasing Fate and when i found out she had moved back to the area,I asked her to come in to read against Mark.I knew she was an amazing actor, the only question was whether she and Mark would have chemistry ,and they totally did.
I actually just made an announcement last week about a new actress taking over the role of Jessica James.Natalie was amazing,but she moved on to other things.I looked through more than 700 submissions to find a new lead actress and found a amazing one in Jourdan Gibson.So the question came up again about the chemistry between Jourdan and Mark.Jourdan lives in L.A and we shoot in upstate New York.But I had Jourdan and Mark read some scenes together through Skype and they totally hit it off and were awesome together.I'm so excited to see them work together in Season 2
Here are pics of Mark Pezzula,Natalie Bain and creator Jeff Burns:
