ComicsBeat and ElectricNOW Partner to Deliver Con Daily Show at San Diego Comic-Con

Heidi MacDonald’s award winning website ComicsBeat, and FAST app ElectricNOW, owned by Electric Entertainment, have partnered up to produce Con Daily, covering developments at San Diego Comic Con (SDCC).

The show will cover all the news from SDCC, featuring multiple correspondents like Yael Tygiel known for her post-show podcasts, Reagan Yorke who focuses on comedy, video game reporter Celia Schilling, and culture journalist Kari Lane.

Each episode will end with a no-holds-barred panel featuring Con Daily correspondents giving a round-up of events at the show and the days news.

SDCC is North America’s annual Comic-Con event, with thousands of attendees dressing up as their favourite pop-culture character and studios and streamers spending millions to hype up and promote upcoming projects.

The show will consist of four episodes that will stream exclusively on Roku and ElectricNOW, with daily updates hitting YouTube.

Dean Devlin, scriptwriter for iconic sci-fi properties like ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Stargate’ and CEO of Electric Entertainment, said in a statement: “I recall going to early Comic-Cons to promote my films such as ‘Independence Day’ and ‘Stargate,’ long before it became the mainstream sensation it is today. 

“I always felt the special sense of community the convention brought to fantasy and sci-fi fans. Now, collaborating with the award-winning website ComicsBeat, allows me to provide viewers at  home who cannot make it to the show with an up-close and behind-the-scenes experience.”

The show will be produced by Lucas Thompson of ElectricNOW and directed by Patrick Meaney, well known for his documentaries including ‘Grant Morrison: Talking With Gods’, ‘Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously’, ‘Chris Claremont’s X-Men’ and ‘The Image Revolution’.

SDCC runs from Thursday July 25 until Sunday July 28.
