  • Black Lightning: Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. However, after too many nights with his life on the line, and seeing the effects of the damage and loss that his alter ego was inflicting on his family, he left his Super Hero days behind and settled into being a principal and a dad. Choosing to help his city without using his superpowers, he watched his daughters Anissa (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer (China Anne McClain) grow into strong young women, even though his marriage to their mother, Lynn (Christine Adams), suffered. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, Black Lightning returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community. Based on the characters from DC, Black Lightning is from Berlanti Productions and Akil Productions, in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), Salim Akil & Mara Brock Akil (Being Mary Jane, The Game, Jumping the Broom, Girlfriends) and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl). Black Lightning premieres midseason on The CW.

Press Release:

Wayward cats no more! Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats, a local Los Angeles non-profit organization specializing in street cat rescue, is producing A CATbaret! – A One-Night Celebrity Musical Celebration of the Alluring Feline. This one-night only benefit concert is on Sunday, August 4 at 7:30pm at the historic Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Mingle with the celebrities at a VIP after party following the event.

A CATbaret! is hosted by Fred Willard (Modern Family), who will be joined by: Chris Carmack (Nashville); Bethany Joy Lenz (Dexter; One Tree Hill); Keith David (CLOUD ATLAS); Thomas Dekker (TERMINATOR, SECRET CIRCLE, FOREVERLAND); Briana Evigan (Step Up); Ioan Gruffudd (FANTASTIC FOUR); Kelley Jakle (PITCH PERFECT); Kathryn McCormick (Step Up Revolution); Mindy Sterling (AUSTIN POWERS); Shelley Regner; (PITCH PERFECT) Olesya Rulin (HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL); Drew Seeley (Love Struck: The Musical); and Nicole Sullivan (Mad TV). Plus celebrity choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon and the So You Think You Can Dance dancers, Dancing with the Stars and more!

A CATbaret! is a musical revue of popular cat-themed songs, showcasing music from show tunes such as Be A Lion to Elton John’s classic rock Honky Cat; from the bluesy Black Cat Bone to the 60’s pop hit Walking My Cat Named Dog; plus everything in between.

A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the CATS IN WHITE SPATS Award, given to those in the entertainment field who have demonstrated commitment to animals. This year Tricia Helfer will receive the award, presented by her cast mate Michael Trucco (Barely Legal, Battlestar Galactica). A former model, Helfer’s best known for her four year star-turn as “Six” on the Award-winning Syfy series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. She’ll star as “Molly Parker” in the new ABC series Killer Women reuniting with Trucco, premiering early 2014. On the film side, Helfer’s credits include MEMORY with Dennis Hopper; A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO BEGINNINGS with Harvey Keitel and Scott Caan; and OPEN HOUSE opposite Brian Geraghty and Anna Paquin.

Kitty Bungalow is doing their part to manage the homeless pet population that that finds our city shelters killing 75% of the cats entering the system. On-the-ground rescues are key to lowering this sad statistic. A CATbaret! will help raise the funds to finance the medical services and supplies it takes to have these cats complete Charm School and find loving homes or ultimately re-integrate into their colonies. On July 14, Kitty Bungalow will complete a brand-new charm school facility with first-rate socialization and examination areas for its pupils.

Las Vegas Comic Expo Relocates to the Riviera

Comments Off on Las Vegas Comic Expo Relocates to the Riviera

Las Vegas Comic Expo, previously announced to be held at the Alexis Park All Suite Resort, will be relocating to a new venue, the Riviera Hotel and Casino, directly located on the Las Vegas Strip!!!

Due to the flash floods from the recent rain storms, the original hotel and halls located at the Alexis Park Resort were damaged beyond immediate repair to house Las Vegas Comic Expo. Drywall, carpet and a lack of power proved too much to repair in such a short window, thus making the shift to the Riviera necessary.

We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused any of our guests, vendors and attendees. But oddly enough this unfortunate circumstance actually has led to an expansion for the show with a larger convention hall and plenty of space for attendees to browse and shop. The new location at the Riviera will be able to showcase and accommodate the entire guest list of over 50 of the top names in comics and entertainment all united with the exhibitors and artist alley in one grand exhibit hall. The gaming, panels and programs will be conveniently located adjacent to the main hall as well.

The dates of the convention hours remain the same for Las Vegas Comic Expo: Saturday, September 29 (10AM to 7PM) and Sunday, September 30 (10AM to 5PM).

All tickets previously issued will be honored and redirected to Las Vegas Comic Expo at the Riviera. Tickets are still available for sale in advance as well as at the door on the days of the event.

Located on the Las Vegas Strip, The Riviera Hotel and Casino is just a quick cab or shuttle ride from McCarran International Airport (LAS) and only minutes away from downtown Las Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience.

The hotel offers guests amenities of many dining options including a buffet, food court and steakhouse as well as the Oasis Pool, a barber shop, beauty salon, tattoo parlor (What happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas), gaming casino and other forms of entertainment and conveniences. The hotel has ample free public parking, and is also a short walk to the public monorail system.

The Riviera is located at 2901 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, NV 89109.

They will also continue to have complimentary shuttle service for their guests between the airport and the Alexis Park All Suite Resort.
OPTION 2:

You can cancel your room at the Alexis Park All Suite Resort and opt to make a reservation at The Riviera Hotel and Casino. The deadline to cancel at The Alexis Park Resorts without penalty is 48 hours prior to the date of your reservation.
For those who made reservations at Alexis Park outside of the Las Vegas Comic Expo promotions, you will need to discuss with Alexis Park about your options.

THE CONFIRMED 100 OFFER:

If you took advantage of the “Confirmed 100 Offer”, your free admission to Las Vegas Comic Expo, as part of our free pass promotion will still of course be honored as long as the following applies:

If you keep your Alexis Park reservation, you will still receive the free admission pass(es).

We will cross check all reservations made with Alexis Park and the Riviera.

With the current situation, the easiest way to claim your free admission is to bring a government issued photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc…) to the Will Call area during the pre-registration or show times.

Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con 2011 Con Report

Comments Off on Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con 2011 Con Report

On April 29-May 1st 2011, the Anaheim Convention Center hosted the 2nd annual Wizard World Anaheim show. Considering the amount of traffic on a Friday evening in Los Angeles, and a start time of 5 PM, I wasn’t expecting many people to show up the first day. I was mistaken. 

From the start, the show started off with a bang. Just like last year, the crowds of people showed up to see some of their favorite celebrities, and also to interact with comic book creators. Saturday’s crowds definitely rocked the show, and although the Sunday crowds definitely thinned out, it was a terrific con, just like last year. It seems Anaheim is a great spot for a comic convention, with a lot of people commenting this was their first show. Whether it was through word of mouth, or the 50% off ticket purchased through Yelp, the show was definitely a success. If Comic Con ever left SD, Anaheim might definitely be a place to call home. Now on to some pics!

Welcome to Wizard World Anaheim!
