San Diego, Calif. (rushPRnews) 07/25/10 — By Valerie Milano
Even as Comic Con 2010 winds down at the San Diego Convention Center, exciting events are still going on and Saturday, sadly, including the alleged stabbing in Hall H – over a request to swap seats, no less. But on a lighter note, “The Event” pilot was screened to an enthusiastic crowd.
Starring Jason Ritter, Blair Underwood, Laura Innes, Sarah Roemer, Zeljko Ivanek, Ian Anthony Dale, the story line follows an average Joe who begins to look into the disappearance of his fiancé when he stumbles onto the biggest government cover up in history. The producers announced that although the series is a mixture of “Lost” and “24”, the plot direction will be unveiled in the 2nd episode.
Other panels included “Human Target”, promoted by Mark Valley, Chi McBride and Jackie Earle Haley. It was announced the show would be adding a new character this fall, which should add some exciting new possibilities to the developing series. Indira Varma plays the new boss and a second character to join the crew has yet to be cast.
“Family Guy” fit into Comic Con by screening “It’s a Trap”, their Return of the Jedi spoof. Voice actors Seth Green, Patrick Warburton and Alex Borstein answered questions from fans.
Update on the stabbing: The ambulance took the injured party away, police took the perp , and once Hall H opened again, it was busy all day with more panels, including “Chuck”, “No Ordinary Family”, “Myth Busters”, Warehouse B”, “Nikita, “Vampire Diaries” and don’t forget all the big film releases. And in between of coarse, there were the comics, the reason Comic-Con was originally started.
