Comic-Con is back and Lost Remote has returned for the second year to cover this TV fan phenomenon. Last year we learned about how important Comic-Con is to the TV world from Entertainment Weekly‘s (EW) Lynette Rice. Now the entertainment giant is returning to San Diego with mover coverage than ever before – this time teaming up with a major TV partner.
Here are the details from EW:
For the first time ever, Entertainment Weekly will team up with the #1 syndicated entertainment newsmagazine Entertainment Tonight and will also air interviews on Entertainment Weekly Radio on SiriusXM (channel 105) in an expanded media space at the EW Photo and Digital Studio at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. It will be a one-stop shop for the leading stars in TV and film to promote their upcoming projects to fans.
Once again EW is going to be there capturing what fans around the world don’t necessarily have access to. Not surprisingly a TV show as popular as Entertainment Tonight (ET) is going to play a major role in that expansion. Here’s a full list of their panels at Comic-Con as well.
