SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK PILOT SCREENINGS

WEDNESDAY, JULY 11 • BALLROOM 20

 

For the fifth straight year, WBTVG gets Comic-Con off to a dramatic start by hosting a special sneak peek, world premiere screening event on Preview Night.

 

This year, the Studio is offering fans the opportunity to see five of the most anticipated new drama series of the year, for the first time ever in public.

 

  • 666 Park Avenue (Sundays 10/9c ABC): Lost’s Terry O’Quinn and Desperate Housewives’ Vanessa Williams headline this seductive drama from Alloy Entertainment as the owners of a Manhattan apartment building who recruit an idealistic young couple to manage the historic site where anything you desire can be yours … for a price.

 

  • Arrow (Wednesdays 8/7c The CW): From Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern), Marc Guggenheim (Green Lantern), Andrew Kreisberg (Warehouse 13, Fringe) and David Nutter (Smallville, Supernatural, Game of Thrones), this hard-hitting action series reinvents the DC hero. After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and very lethal new set of skills that he uses in a war on crime.

 

  • Cult (Midseason The CW): In this visceral thriller from the creator of Farscape and the producers of Chuck, a bright and driven reporter teams up with an inquisitive television researcher to investigate a series of disturbing disappearances all tied to a wildly popular new television show called … Cult.

 

  • The Following (Midseason Mondays FOX): Golden Globe winner/Emmy® nominee Kevin Bacon and Rome’s James Purefoy star in this cat-and-mouse thriller from Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries) about a diabolical serial killer (Purefoy) and the psychologically scarred ex-FBI agent (Bacon) called in to stop him and the cult of serial killers he has created.

 

  • Revolution (Mondays 10/9c NBC): In this epic adventure thriller from Supernaturals Eric Kripke, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Iron Man’s Jon Favreau, a family struggles to reunite in a post-apocalyptic landscape of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters where every single piece of technology — phones, computers, cars, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out … forever.

    GO POI!!!

  • Nick

    I don’t get why The Big Bang Theory has a place in Comic -Con. If WB just wanted to show all of their shows, regardless of genre, The Middle and Suburgatory’d be there too!

  • Nick

    ^ Never mind, I just got it.

  • Nick

    Anway, yay for POI, Revolution, 666 Park, TBBT, Arrow, and Cult!

  • Jason50

  • greenf

    Wow Hall H for Fringe!! That’s quite amazing.

  • Andrew Bone

    Nikita

  • Andrew Bone

    Arrow,Nikita,beauty and the beast and Cult

  • thesnowleopard

    I’m confused that Fringe is still getting a panel when everyone already knows it will be gone by Christmas. How much about the upcoming last season can they possibly spoil without blowing the whole storyline? And is it really worth the cost of bringing the cast and writers there? The best I can figure is that it’s intended to drum up publicity for syndication.

    Chuck had a big “to do” at Comic-Con before it’s last season, and everyone knew it would be gone by February.

  • Sid

    I’m really excited for Nikita and CULT.

    Arrow was building up steam for me in the beginning but the clips are making me lose interest. I’ll watch the pilot for sure, but I’m not excited for Arrow as I was before.

  • Sid

    Oh and The Following looks great as well!
