SPECIAL SNEAK PEEK PILOT SCREENINGS

WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 • BALLROOM 20

  • Almost Human: In the near future, technology and crime will increase so quickly that law enforcement will not be able to keep up. To maintain order and keep the public safe, all police officers must partner with highly evolved human-like-androids known as synthetics. From J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Production and Fringe executive producer J.H. Wyman, Almost Human is the story of Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban – Star Trek), and his life-like android partner Dorian (Michael Ealy – Underworld Awakening).
  • The Originals: From executive producer Julie Plec comes The Originals, a spinoff of The CW’s #1 series among Adults 18–34 and Comic-Con fan-favorite The Vampire Diaries. The sexy new drama centers on the Original Family, as Klaus (Joseph Morgan) returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans.
  • The Tomorrow People: From executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow), Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries), Phil Klemmer (Chuck) and Danny Cannon (Nikita), The Tomorrow People is a story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically.
  • The 100: 97 years ago, Earth was devastated by a nuclear apocalypse, and mankind was nearly destroyed. The only survivors were the inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were in orbit at the time. The stations came together to form the Ark, but with resources dwindling and population growth soaring, the decision is made to send The 100, a group of juvenile delinquents, to the surface to test whether Earth is once again habitable.

    Am I going crazy, or does the panel description say nothing about the
    BBT cast being involved in the panel? Is it just one of those things
    where it goes without saying? Or is the cast part of the “surprise”? Or any I reading too much into every. single. thing. that gets released about Comic Con. Hmmm…

  • SPNFan

    Supernatural!!! Jensen, Jared, Misha, Mark! The Carver! Very excited to see all of them at SDCC!

  • AmandaF

    Supernatural for sure!!!! I can’t wait for the Season 9 premiere, nor can I wait to hear what the cast and executive producers have to say at the SDCC. I have been a fan since Supernatural premiered way back in 2005, who would have thought our “little show that could” is now entering it’s ninth season? Supernatural is the best show on tv in my opinion, many other shows have tried to imitate it but none can match the brilliance that is Supernatural. There is a reason why it is still going strong after 8 seasons……………… it’s THAT good!!!!

  • Phil Anthony Odell
