JPod debuts on CBCPosted: 7 January 2008
I’m looking forward to the premiere of JPod on CBC TV. There’s a site with cast and crew bios, links to sites for the book, the book’s wiki, and Douglas Coupland, and other fun things related to the program.
I’ve been a big fan of Coupland’s since reading Microserfs, and while I prefer this book over JPod, even though the settings are similar, it’s still fun to see something of Coupland’s realized on screen.
This isn’t the first, however. Everything’s Gone Green is a 2006 film with an original screenplay by Coupland. I really enjoyed it when I saw it at the Vancouver International Film Festival.
In a nutshell, JPod is about Ethan and his coworkers (all of whose names have a “J” in it), his parents, and the various hijinks that ensue. If it’s anything like the book, the 13 episodes of JPod the series is going to be fun!
