20th Century Fox Television has announced its 2012 Comic-Con schedule, which we therefore present to you here. Not that they’re offering much that we cover here at SciFi Mafia, except for one of my top two shows. HEY WAIT A MINUTE – ARGH! No American Horror Story! Well, given that they’ll probably be shooting, and that Ryan Murphy has indicated that he’d like to keep as much of it under wraps as possible, that’s probably not a huge surprise, though it is a disappointment.
We already learned about the Fringe panel from Warner Bros last Thursday, and… that’s it for us with Fox, except for Futurama which is also produced by 20th Century Fox Television. But for those of you who watch shows that we don’t usually cover here, well, here you go:
Twentieth Century Fox Television will once again dominate the San Diego Comic-Con convention, with stars and creators of ten of its signature shows at the world famous fan gathering next month. In addition to exclusive sneak peeks of its programs and panel discussions with the stars and creators of its shows, the studio will rotate an incredible line-up of talent through the fan favorite Fox booth on the convention center floor for star-studded autograph signings and exciting booth activities including distribution of exclusive 2012 Fox Fanfare Poster Tubes, collectible mini-posters, premium giveaways, DVD sales, as well as Fox iPad App demos available for fan interaction.
