Jesse Alexander is a storyteller that has proven his worth in every medium – a writer and producer for everything from television (Lost, Alias, Heroes), to films, to video games, even comic books.

His interest in transmedia entertainment is the main focus of his personal blog, Global Couch, where the header to his site reads:

“The name Global Couch is a transmedia concept that describes a paradigm shift in the way audiences find their entertainment. The living room couch had always been the place where families shared an entertainment experience, now, it’s all the about the web. So grab a seat and pass the clicker, I mean the mouse.”

Jesse has most recently been neck deep in his labor-of-love, cross platform, post-apocalyptic, NBC miniseries: DAY ONE. Using a tightly connected network of comic books, online material, interactive gaming, apparel components, and, last but not least, a grass roots effort to draw people deeper into the mysterious story-world he has worked so hard to shape.
