Remember back when everyone complained that San Diego Comic-Con was being overtaken by Hollywood studios to promote their new films? Well, now the movies are being overshadowed by television, and no one seems to be too upset about it. Not when those TV shows include the likes of horror favorites “American Horror Story,” “Salem,” “Sleepy Hollow,” and newcomers “Scream Queens” and Damien.”
First out of the gate with an announcement of what they’ll be bringing to the 2015 SDCC, Twentieth Century Fox Television has revealed a lineup that includes all of the above. Read on for the early details (exact dates and times to come)!
Attendees will be treated to the world premiere screening of “Scream Queens” on Saturday, July 11th, as well as a joint panel between “Scream Queens” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show/Hotel” (more info below).
Along with panels and screenings, Fox will have a two-story booth on the convention center floor for star-studded autograph signings and activities including distribution of exclusive 2015 Fox Fanfare poster tubes, collectible mini-posters, premium giveaways, DVD sales, and more.
“American Horror Story” / “Scream Queens” Panel
Get ready to scream! It’s a Comic-Con horror fest when members of the all-star cast of Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan’s Fox comedy “Scream Queens” (Jamie Lee Curtis—the original “scream queen,” Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, and Keke Palmer) come face to face with the stars of Murphy and Falchuk’s FX dramas “American Horror Story: Freak Show” and the upcoming “American Horror Story: Hotel” (Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Matt Bomer). This lively gathering of headliners promises laughs, scares, and secrets from the sets.
From executive producer Glen Mazzara (“The Walking Dead,” “The Shield”), “Damien” follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 motion picture who has grown up seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist. Starring Bradley James (“Merlin”), Barbara Hershey, Megalyn Echikunwoke, and Omid Abtahi. Get an exclusive look at the exciting first season of A&E’s drama series “Damien” followed by a Q&A with cast and producers – plus a very special guest appearance!
It’s a witch war! Join the star-studded cast including Shane West, Janet Montgomery, Seth Gabel, Ashley Madekwe, and Iddo Goldberg, along with executive producers Brannon Braga and Adam Simon, for a look back at intriguing footage from the supernatural second season, from WGN America and Fox 21 Television Studios. Moderated discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
“Sleepy Hollow” Panel
Everyone’s favorite witnesses return to Comic-Con! Join Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Lyndie Greenwood, and the executive producers of the hit Fox show for a first peek into the highly anticipated third season.
