SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK PILOT SCREENINGS
WEDNESDAY, JULY 20 • 6-9 PM • BALLROOM 20
WBTVG continues its Comic-Con tradition of hosting a special sneak peek premiere event on preview night. This year, the Studio is offering fans the opportunity to see some of the most anticipated new premieres of the year.
"Alcatraz": Executive producers J.J. Abrams and Elizabeth Sarnoff deliver a chilling new midseason drama for FOX revolving around America's most infamous prison, the one-time home to the nation's worst murderers, rapists, kidnappers, thieves and arsonists.
"The Secret Circle": The ordinary becomes extraordinary in this romantic drama about a coven of young witches, from "The Vampire Diaries" executive producer Kevin Williamson, based upon the book series by L.J. Smith ("The Vampire Diaries").
"Person of Interest": From J.J. Abrams and "The Dark Knight" co-writer Jonathan Nolan comes an action-packed hour for CBS about an ex-CIA operative and a mysterious billionaire who team up to stop violent crimes before they happen in New York City.
"Supernatural: The Anime Series": The popular series "Supernatural" makes history this summer as the first-ever live-action show to be re-imagined in Japanese anime style. Renowned animation studio MADhouse - working with the full approval of series creator Eric Kripke - produced the anime series, which mirrors the story arc of "Supernatural's" first two seasons, providing supplemental stories ranging from prequels and spin-offs to untold tales that fit within the "Supernatural" mythology.
And it wouldn't be Comic-Con without a visit to the Warner Bros. booth. The Studio will once again have a can't-miss, nearly 3,000-square-foot destination on the convention floor, at space #4545. Anchored by the iconic Warner Bros. Water Tower, the booth is a must-visit location for autograph signings, multiple interactive kiosks for fans to play video games from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and much, much more.
