Connor Jessup (inset), Sarah Carter, Drew Roy, Noah Wyle, Colin Cunningham… (TNT )
"Falling Skies"will invade San Diego Comic Con on July 13, the latest TV series to announce a panel at the giant fan event July 11-15. Last year more than 100 TV shows were represented at SDCC, and this year's list is growing larger every day.
For cast member Connor Jessup, it's a dream come true. "I'm into animation and comics, like going to Comic Con for this show would be my dream," he told me before the TNT series began its second season. "It would be fun to go."
Jessup will be part of the Friday panel for the first time, joining Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Colin Cunningham, Sarah Carter and showrunner Remi Aubuchon. Find more details below.
Here's what I know so far about TV panels. Times, places and/or panelists for some of the panels have yet to be announced. I'll update the list daily.
