God, Inc - Episode 5

God, Inc Org Chart

Andy Hark, an eagle-eyed youtube movie critic and fan of the show, has taken the liberty of making a completely accurate org chart for the series. Only one character, Ophelia, the Wiccan Publicist, is missing, because she first appears in Episode 5. Enjoy!

More Links

I did an interview for an AP article on youtube last week that appeared on the Yahoo home page and in the New York Times on Friday. Which was pretty unreal - the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times in one week. )It might only be the online Times, though - I got a print copy Friday and couldn't find it, although I was standing at the newsstand on Laurel Canyon in the rain and I gave up pretty quickly.)

Also, I did my first radio interview a couple weeks ago with a really cool guy, Daniel Lewis, who hosts a show called The Morning Rehab in Texas. He just posted the interview on his website.

Episode 5 is done and uploading now, and tomorrow I will see about getting iTunes going so you can download "God, Inc" for your video iPod.

Wall Street Journal Article

I just noticed that when you click on the link, you have to sign up or something, but the article is so brief you can actually read half of it anyway, so instead of you going to the trouble, I'll repost the content:

Comedy: Video
New sitcoms rise on the Web
January 20, 2007; Page P2

A new sitcom with a rapidly growing following twists the premise of NBC's "The Office" by giving it an otherworldly setting: the corporate headquarters of heaven. The show, "God, Inc," can be seen only online.

It's part of an expanding Web genre: comedy series by budding writers or filmmakers that borrow some of the pacing and structure of television sitcoms, though often with more offbeat concepts. Episodes are usually a few minutes long.

In some cases, TV executives are taking notice of these shows. The Cartoon Network's Adult Swim has commissioned...

[bla bla bla... crap that's not about "God, Inc." Anyway, the article ends:]

HOW TO FIND IT: Go to and search for "Gemberling," "God, Inc" and "Illeanarama."

Working On Episode 5...

So, I'm back in town and editing Episode 5 at the moment. Meanwhile, here's the latest in the response to "God, Inc:" We got featured in a Wall Street Journal article last Saturday. (No shit. The Wall Street Journal. You can imagine the reaction from my stock trader dad!) Also, wants to feature us on their site and Comedy Central has asked to interview me for theirs. And I just did an interview for an AP article, due out tomorrow.

We also got featured on the Videos page on MySpace (for those of you MySpacers who haven't become our friend yet, check us out!) And someone is doing a Spanish translation, so there will be a subtitled version available shortly. And I promise, promise it will be up on iTunes by the end of the week.

Thanks again for watching! Back to editing...

"God, Inc" Update At 3:05 AM

I'm tired. It's been a pretty overwhelming weekend, since they posted "God, Inc - Episode 1" on the main page of youtube. At latest count, it was viewed roughly 460,000 times in the past 48 hours. Which makes my head spin. A big welcome to all my new visitors and commentors. Especially to those visiting the Harold Buttleman, Daredevil Stuntman website - I'm working on a DVD release and will hopefully have info on that some time this week - and Sludgie. We also now have a MySpace page, so we're officially in YOUR extended network!

As for "God, Inc," Episode 3 will be up by Tuesday at the latest. Just putting the finishing touches on. Thanks a million. I'm truly thrilled by the response.

"God Inc" Featured On Vlog Soup, Buttleman on Knievel Comedy Site

A big thanks to Steve Garfield of "Vlog Soup" and "Rocketboom" for plugging our show! We're featured alongside vlogs about life in India and being on the campaign trail with John Edwards, which made us feel extremely important. Check it out.

Thanks also to 'zine writer Steve Mandich for featuring Buttleman on his Knievel Comedy page, an intensely thorough inventory (alongside such historic highlights as Penis Knievel and the cliffhanger episode of "Happy Days" with Fonzie jumping the now-proverbial shark...)

And a huge, heartfelt thanks to everybody who has left such nice comments. It's actually been a bit overwhelming. Except for the guy who called us weiners. He thinks we're weiners. But to the rest of you: thank you.
