The Companion is offering fans of Stargate, Travelers, The Outer Limits, and more to ask writer-producer Brad Wright anything. Brad will sit down with The Companion this weekend for an exclusive AMA Livestream.
The event takes place this Saturday, November 21, starting at 12 p.m. Pacific time (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT). The Companion’s Lawrence Kao will host, and spaces are limited to around 200 people.
While working as a writer and producer on MGM’s The Outer Limits, Wright co-created Stargate SG-1 with Jonathan Glassner in 1997. He went on to shepherd the franchise for 14 years, producing 17 seasons of television — and co-creating Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe (with Robert C. Cooper) along the way.
After Stargate went off the air, he created Travelers for Netflix and Canada’s Showcase network.
The AMA Livestream is an exclusive for members of The Companion, a new subscription digital magazine that features articles and more spanning the whole of sci-fi entertainment. Wright is a contributor and creative advisor to The Companion, with a lengthy essay on science fiction published last month. The essay “The Rules of Stargates, Superheroes, Death Stars and Parking Zones” explores how good genre storytelling is structured by carefully crafted rules.
The Companion is offering a 7-day free trial for the monthly membership (or 14 days for the yearly membership), so joining this Saturday’s event won’t cost you anything. If you stick around for more from The Companion after that week, the subscription runs $6.99 per month.
You can register your interest in attending this event by signing up for a free trial of The Companion here.
For those who don’t want to sign up for the trial right now — or who want to double their chance at getting a spot in the livestream — GateWorld is giving away a free pass to FIVE readers!
Sign in to Rafflecopter below and choose your entry method(s). Entries must be received by the end of the day (Pacific time) on Thursday, November 19. We will choose five winners on Friday, November 20, and send you your unique link to join the AMA by e-mail. Be on the lookout!
(Please note that this giveaway is for a free pass to Brad Wright’s AMA Livestream, and not a subscription to The Companion.)
