PANELS

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012

The Venture Bros.  Location: IGN Theater  Time: 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m.  Talent: Jackson Publick (co-creator) and Doc Hammer (co-creator)   Show creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer, perennial Comic-Con favorites, will discuss their original series, upcoming Halloween Special and answer fan questions. Launched on Adult Swim in August 2004, The Venture Bros. is an inspired spoof of 1960s action cartoon shows such as “Johnny Quest.” The animated series follows the bizarre misadventures of the Venture family, which includes world-renowned Dr. Venture, his dimwitted sons Hank and Dean as well as Brock Samson, their bodyguard assigned by the government to keep an eye on the family who is then promptly forgotten by the Feds.

ADULT SWIM: Robot Chicken  Location: IGN Theater  Time: 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.  Talent: Seth Green (co-creator), Matt Senreich (co-creator), Kevin Shinick (writer and voice talent), and Clare Grant (voice talent)   Seth Green (co-creator) and Matthew Senreich (co-creator), Kevin Shinick (MAD), and Clare Grant (voice talent) discuss season six of their popular Adult Swim series Robot Chicken. Created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, the Emmy Award-winning Robot Chicken uses stop-motion animation to bring pop-culture parodies to life in a modern take on the variety/sketch show format.

 

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13

ADULT SWIM: China, IL  Location: Room 1A10  Time: 2:30 p.m. – 3:15 p.m.  Talent: Brad Neely (creator), Daniel Weidenfeld (executive producer) and Hannibal Buress (voice talent)   Join show creator Brad Neely, executive producer Daniel Weidenfeld and comedian Hannibal Buress (The Eric Andre Show, SNL) as they discuss their new Adult Swim animated hit China, IL and preview what’s to come in season two. In the animated series China, IL, Frank and Steve Smith are brothers who teach in the history department of a state university. They also happen to be legends in their own minds who will often sacrifice facts, lessons and syllabi for the sake of being awesome. Created by Brad Neely and produced by Titmouse, Inc., China, IL is a reverse Animal House where the teachers are crazy and the students just want to learn.

ADULT SWIM: Superjail!  Location: Room 1A10  Time: 3:30 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.  Talent: Christy Karacas (creator and executive producer), Stephen Warbrick (creator and executive producer), Mike Carlo (animation director), Janine DiTullio (story editor), Richard Mather (layout artist and voice talent) and David Wain (voice talent)   Join show creators and executive producers Christy Karacas and Stephen Warbrick with voice talent David Wain (Wanderlust, Childrens Hospital) and layout artist and voice talent Richard Mather, animation director Mike Carlo, and story editor Janine Ditullio, as they discuss their Adult Swim series Superjail! and show never-before-seen footage! Fast-paced animation, flying guts, creepy underlings, and plenty of prison fights dominate the Warden’s chaotic prison in Superjail!. The blood flows like wine and the line between criminal and keeper gets blurrier by the minute. Picture a kaleidoscope of entrails meets Jon Waters meets Shawshank damnation plus a sweaty muscle woman minus primetime sensibility. You are hereby guilty of being given what you asked for.

ADULT SWIM: Childrens Hospital/NTSF:SD:SUV::  Location: Room 1A10  Time: 4:30 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.  Talent: Rob Corddry (creator and star), Paul Scheer (creator and star), Jonathan Stern (executive producer), David Wain (director and star), Curtis Gwinn (co-executive producer).   Join the stars and producers behind Adult Swim’s live-action comedies Childrens Hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV::. Childrens Hospital creator and star Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), executive producer Jonathan Stern (Newsreaders), director and star David Wain (Wanderlust), are joined by NTSF:SD:SUV:: creator and star Paul Scheer (The League), and co-executive producer Curtis Gwinn (Fat Guy Stuck in Internet) to discuss both series.
