POP CULTURE ICON BRUCE CAMPBELL TO HOST NEW ORIGINAL SERIES “LAST FAN STANDING” FOR UPCOMING DIGITAL NETWORK CONTV

Cinedigm And Wizard World’s New Network To Launch This February With Fan-Favorite Film, TV And Original Entertainment Geared Towards the Comic Con Community

JANUARY 9, 2015, LOS ANGELES, CA – The forthcoming digital streaming service CONtv has announced it will be kicking off production for a new original series, LAST FAN STANDING, a game show hosted and produced by fan-favorite actor Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead, Army Of Darkness). Created in partnership with Pop Quiz Entertainment, the series will be filmed live on the ground at Comic Con conventions nationwide with first show taping on Saturday, January 10 at New Orleans Comic Con. LAST FAN STANDING engages event attendees through a proprietary audience response system, where all patrons play along, competing for cash and prizes. The show culminates with the top four players vying for the coveted title as Campbell hunts for the LAST FAN STANDING.

Scheduled to launch next month, CONtv is a joint venture between Cinedigm, a leading independent content distributor, and Wizard World, a leading producer of live pop culture multimedia conventions. LAST FAN STANDINGwill be shot throughout various Wizard World events throughout 2015, and will premiere on CONtv later this year.

Wonder how much Thor’s hammer weighs? Or how much damage the Vorpal blade would inflict on a 5th-Level Cleric? Fans finally find vindication in their hours studying comics, films, movies and more with host and horror icon Campbell in this outrageous new quiz show. A collaboration between his own production entity and Pop Quiz Entertainment, this will be Campbells first digital series.

At a live preview during Wizard Worlds Chicago Comic Con last August, six hundred screaming fans could barely hold their seats! It was obvious to us that this would be a hit, said Chris McGurk, CEO of Cinedigm Entertainment. With a host as beloved in the fan community as Bruce, theres no better fit for CONtv than LAST FAN STANDING.We think of this series as a celebration of the pop culture obsession and fan engagement that makes the CONtv audience so special.

The audience went crazy for LAST FAN STANDING when we debuted the game at Chicago Comic Con this summer! CONtv is the perfect place to reach true fans, and we can’t wait to challenge our audiences to find out who is the ultimate pop culture guru,said Campbell.

We love that CONtv will be bringing the excitement and action of our conventions to fans across the country,says John Macaluso, CEO of Wizard World. By shooting LAST FAN STANDING on location, CONtv viewers will be able to join in on the fan experience even when they arent able to be at the convention in person.

Steve Sellery, CEO of Pop Quiz Entertainment commented, We created LAST FAN STANDING to celebrate the excitement and the fandom of each audience member, while providing them the chance to compete in a live game show. This truly is a unique and highly experiential platform that we trust will become a fan favoritewell into the future.

The new series joins the recently announced FIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, a horror-competition series from Alpine Labs, BlackBoxTV and Revolver Picture Company. An unprecedented mash-up of the reality and scripted genres, FIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD follows a collection of online celebrities including Joey Graceffa, Jesse and Jeana (PrankvsPrank), Justine Ezarik (iJustine), and more, as they face challenges in an attempt to survive the undeads relentlessly grisly, and frighteningly realistic onslaught.

Additionally, CONtv also recently announced an expansive portfolio of acquired film and television content available on the new digital network. Carefully selected for the passionate fans that make up the CONtv audience, the new partnerships enable the network to carry a deep catalogue of the best in pop culture obsession from pulse-pounding horror, to short-lived TV series, to cult classic films.
