Interview With Jeff 1000 and Alphas Creator Michael Karnow

Michael Karnow is an experienced film industry professional who has worked for many years as a script writer, producer and co-created with Zak Penn Syfy's science fiction drama Alphas, in which Summer Glau had a recurring role as Skylar Adams. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Summer is playing in Jeff 1000, the sci-fi comedy web series he created for Wired Magazine, which features Summer as herself and whose best friend happens to be a nine-foot-tall robot who left Detroit to pursue his dream - become an actor in Los Angeles. Michael Karnow has graciously agreed to answer our and fan-submitted questions about how Summer got involved in the project, working on set of Jeff 1000, what he had in mind for the Skylar character in Alphas, what would have happened on Alphas season 3 and much more.

Question: Summer is a sci-fi fans favorite and she played a Terminator before. Knowing this, was Summer always your first choice or did you audition several actresses?
 
I wrote this specifically for Summer. With any other actress playing herself it would have felt random. But with Summer’s background in science-fiction, it somehow made sense that she would be pals with a giant robot.  Summer always delivers an incredible performance. But as we got into shooting it did occur to me that I had never seen her do comedy. As it turned it out she was great. She played it totally straight. Her nuances and timing were dead-on.    
 
 
Question: Was it the stunning and most impressive performance in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles that influenced the deciding factor in hiring Summer Glau. 
 
Like I said, her previous roles gave a certain logic to the premise.

Question from robbo: When did you approach Summer for the role of Jeff 1000’s best friend and what was her initial reaction in receiving the news that she got the role?
 
Following Alphas, Summer and I had talked about developing a show in which she found herself sucked into something outlandish, something that would have happened in one of her other roles-- like Galaxy Quest but tonally more like something Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich, Eternal Sunshine) would have written.  Wired called saying they had a giant robot -- would I like to create a web series? I immediately got in touch with Summer and she was game. I pulled in director, Nick Copus and Ryan Cartwright who played Gary on Alphas. Both generously offered their talents.

Wired has just debuted their new web series Jeff 1000, starring Summer Glau and her best friend Jeff 1000, a former assembly robot who wants to become a Hollywood actor.
 
While the first episode featured David Arquette as an artist named David Arquette who happens to be Summer ex-boyfriend, we have learned exclusively that fan favorite Ryan Cartwright, who played Gary Bell in Syfy's superhero drama Alphas, is the voice of Jeff 1000, which means Skylar and Gary are reunited on screen, sort of.

Jeff 1000 Season 1 Episodes and Screencaps

Summer's new show Jeff 1000, a web series by Wired magazine, premiered online today, Monday  December 15th. Wired released three short digital episodes, as well as a few interviews and behind-the-scenes videos. The premise of the show - a former industrial robot who goes to Hollywood to be an actor and becomes Summer's best friend in the process - had us grinning.
 
It’s always nice to be pleasantly surprised. Producing this series is a way of reusing the giant robot mech that was created especially for San Diego Comic-Con 2013 by Wired magazine in conjunction with Conde Nast Entertainment and special effects geniuses Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects. With that in mind, Jeff 1000 is a tongue-in-cheek, goofy series that gives us the opportunity to see Summer play a simple human (not taking in account the fact her best friend is a 9.5-foot-tall robot), with normal emotions in a genre she has barely visited before.
 
The first three episodes of Jeff 1000 released today got some pretty hilarious moments and we had fun with it (Oh the TSCC feels...). She really got into the role and did a great job from it. See it for yourself and watch the first three episodes of Jeff 1000 below:
 

Season 1 Episode 1: Meet Jeff: 10' Tall Robot & Hollywood Actor 

Summer Glau has to attend her ex-boyfriend’s art gallery opening and who better to accompany her than a ten-foot tall robot? Jeff agrees to go and is tasked with one job, but things go haywire when he meets the ex—David Arquette.
