TNT will be returning to Comic-Con this month with a full slate of panels, signings and events to support three of its big shows – Legends, The Last Ship and the return of Falling Skies.
First up is Legends, the new spy thriller series starring Sean Bean. The show premieres on August 13, but yesterday we learned it will have a screening and Q&A session on Thursday July 24 at 12:30pm in Room 6A. There will also be a cast signing immediately after the panel, 2pm at the Fox booth.
TNT has also announced it has bigger plans to promote Legends during Comic-Con, such as wrapping the Marriott Marquis & Marina and taking over the San Diego Airport at baggage claim carousels and on escalators and skyway bridges. You can see the images of the wrap and airport messaging below:
Legends‘ Sean Bean will also be part of a fun social network campaign during Comic-Con, where the network will be promoting the hashtag #DontKillSeanBean when mentioning the show. Here’s the quote from the press release:
The hashtag plays on the fact that Bean has died in more than 20 acting roles, including the two characters for which he is widely known: Boromir in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Eddard “Ned” Stark in the series Game of Thrones. The hashtag will have its own tumblr page and will be featured on Legends premium items being handed out to Comic-Con attendees.
Falling Skies will be back in San Diego this month with a panel on Friday July 25 at 4:30pm in Room 6BCF. Stars Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Drew Roy, Will Patton, Sarah Carter, Maxim Knight, Scarlett Byrne and Doug Jones and executive producer David Eick will be on hand as panel guests for a Q&A. The panel will also include video clips from future episodes and the world premiere of the trailer for the upcoming video game Falling Skies: The Game.
In addition to the panel, the Falling Skies booth on the exhibit floor will host the “Falling Skies Cocoon Experience”, where attendees can pose for a photo op inside an alien cocoon. Here’s the description from the press release:
The network is transforming the Falling Skies booth at Comic-Con into an alien cocoon that plays a pivotal part in the July 27 episode. Comic-Con attendees will have the opportunity to pose for pictures inside the large, translucent cocoon, which features fluid-pumping vessels and atmospheric lights and sound designed to make the entire structure look alive.
The Last Ship, the action series executive-produced by Michael Bay, will have a panel on Thursday July 24 at 1:45pm in Room 6A. Guests to appear include stars Eric Dane, Rhona Mitra, Adam Baldwin and Charles Parnell and executive producers Hank Steinberg and Steven Kane. The panel will feature a Q&A with the cast and crew along with clips from upcoming episodes.
