Winners announced for the SPACED marathon with Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes Live!

Many American filmgoers are fans of Edgar Wright's luminous zombie send-up SHAUN OF THE DEAD and his action-flick parody HOT FUZZ, but not nearly enough Americans are familiar with the hilarious BBC show that paved the way for his (as well as his leading men Simon Pegg and Nick Frost's) giant leap onto the big screen. Originally pitched as "a cross between The Simpsons, The X-Files and Northern Exposure," SPACED follows the colorful and surreal misadventures of Tim (Pegg) and Daisy (Hynes) who constantly discover new unproductive ways to kill time while trying to figure out what they want out of life.

If you are reading this blog, then you are probably one of the approximately 900 people who sent in for a chance to win tickets to this incredible show- the SPACED Marathon with director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Jessica Hynes live in person!

We want to thank everyone who sent in a request for seats- it's so great to know how many other SPACED fans there are out there! If you have never seen the show, we HIGHLY recommend you check it out when the COMPLETE SERIES (!) comes out on DVD July 22nd!

If you are not on either of these lists, your dreams aren't dashed just yet. We expect there to be a number- a very small number, probably 10 or so- of seats available to stand-by folks. But don't even think about camping out! We want to see the show too, but we know that camping out angers the 6th Street Gods.

Congrats to the winners and enjoy!

    I hope to dear God that anyone on BOTH of the above lists are not people who have never seen SPACED and just thought they would attend because they thought Simon Pegg was so cute in "Shaun of the Dead". As a huge fan of SPACED living here in Austin (I have friends who are also huge fans and didn't get in either), I was severely disappointed to not get chosen for such an amazing event. Not trying to be sour grapes here, but it was a hard pill to swallow. (I could have f**king met Daisy!!!)
