UNDER THE DOME Pedi-Cab Rides Throughout Austin:

 

 

 

From Friday, March 7 through Sunday, March 9, fans can score a free ride to their next local destination in specially domed pedi-cabs, designed as an homage to the Network’s hit summer series UNDER THE DOME.  The back of the vehicles are also branded with the tagline, “What’s Outside Comes Inside,” which offers a clue as to what’s in store for the town’s inhabitants on the series this summer.  UNDER THE DOME returns for its sophomore season Monday, June 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).  The premiere episode will be written by Stephen King, whose bestselling novel inspired the series.  (@UnderTheDomeCBS, #UnderTheDome)

 

Fully Charged EXTANT Phone Chargers:

 

 

 

Attendees can stay connected in the midst of all of the SXSW activities with free and exclusive android/iPhone chargers, which are branded with EXTANT, CBS’s highly anticipated summer series starring Halle Berry – and are fully charged, so no outlet is necessary. Street teams will distribute the chargers from Friday, March 7 through Sunday, March 9 from a roving EXTANT pedi-cab.  To find out where the EXTANT pedi-cab will pop up next, SXSW attendees can follow @Extant_CBS on Twitter.  EXTANT, premiering Wednesday, July 2 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), is a mystery thriller about a female astronaut (Berry) trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space. Her mystifying experiences in space lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.  EXTANT also stars Goran Visnjic, Camryn Manheim, Grace Gummer, Michael O’Neill, Pierce Gagnon and Hiroyuki Sanada.  (@Extant_CBS,  #Extant)

CBS Daytime invites fans to “Come on Down!” and spin THE PRICE IS RIGHT wheel at SXSW!  From Sunday, March 9 through Wednesday, March 12 at the Austin Convention Center (Booth #1407), attendees who try their luck at the iconic wheel will don a signature THE PRICE IS RIGHT name tag, be eligible for prizes and, with help from the booth team, can capture the excitement on their own smartphone or camera.  Additionally, on Sunday, March 9 only, fans can meet THE PRICE IS RIGHT’s announcer (George Gray) and model (Rachel Reynolds), both of whom will pose for photographs.  Daytime Emmy Award-winning game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, currently in its 42nd season, is daytime’s #1-rated series and the longest-running game show in television history.
