Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We’ve been impatiently waiting for the upcoming comedy series “Moonbase 8,” which stars such legends as John C. ReillyFred Armisen , and Tim Heidecker. In a world where Netflix’s “Space Force” might win a copywrite battle against the US Military for trademark infringement, why not one more series about space?!

Produced by A24 (we love you guys!), “Moonbase 8” was created by Reilly, Armisen, Heidecker, and Emmy nominee Jonathan Krisel. Krisel and Armisen previously worked together on the amazing IFC series Portlandia. Krisel is also directing all 6 episodes of this SHOWTIME series.


Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, MOONBASE 8 follows eager astronauts Skip (Fred Armisen), Rook (Tim Heidecker) and their leader Cap (John C. Reilly) as they attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.


The series hits SHOWTIME sometime later this fall.
