AGENT 88, Kickstarter’s Highest Funded Web Pilot, Blasts into Long Beach Comic & Horror Con
Phenomenon Web-series Creators and Cast Host Panel,
Screen Exclusive Clips of Debut Episode
Saturday, November 3rd, 6-6:45 pm, Room 104A
LONG BEACH, CA (October 22, 2012) – Adding even more talent to this year’s show, Long Beach Comic & Horror Con today announced that Dig Deep Entertainment and Hurricane Entertainment will bring their hugely-anticipated web-series, Agent 88, to this year’s convention for an interactive panel and exclusive screening of clips from the debut episode. Director/producer/artist Digger T Mesch (Art Asylum, Minimates Creator) and producer/editor Jan Utstein-O’Neill (Violent Messiahs, Valhalla) will lead the panel along with the entire cast of the series.
AGENT 88 is the story of the world’s deadliest assassin – an 88 year old British woman with Alzheimer’s. This dark comedy meshes wry wit with cutting-edge action, slick visual effects and the conviction that “Killing Just Gets Better With Age.” The Agent 88 panel will be on Saturday at 6 pm in room 104A, and the cast will also host a signing at their booth from 3 to 4 pm.
“Long Beach 2012 is going to make Long Beach 2011 feel like Long Beach 1911! The whole AGENT 88 team is psyched, it’s one of our favorite shows!” said Mesch.
“Phil and Martha, the show’s organizers are both amazing people. I’m not sure which I look forward to more, seeing them every year or attending their show. They make the experience inviting, fun and full of surprises,” said Utstein-O’Neill.
Joining Mesch and Utstein-O’Neill on the panel will be the show’s cast, including Kay D’Arcy (CRIMINAL MINDS), Ernie Reyes, Jr. (TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, THE RUNDOWN), Carlos Gallardo (EL MARIACHI and DESPERADO), Joseph Gatt (THOR and STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS), Damion Poitier (The Avengers) and Ryan P. Martin (ULTRAVIOLET and KILLER INK), Alexis Cruz (STARGATE, SHARK), and Scott Vance (24, ALIAS). Writer William O’Neill (Violent Messiahs, Snake Plissken), and Director of Photography Joseph Setele (Night of the Living Dead 3D, Jericho) will also join the discussion of how Agent 88 became the highest grossing web series pilot on Kickstarter, cashing out at ten times more than the average series.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to have Dig Deep and Hurricane back this year. Their continued support of the show knows no boundaries. We have watched Agent 88 from its inception, and we are so happy for Jan, Digger, and their crew. We can’t wait to see what they bring to the show for the fans!” said Phil Lawrence, Co-Owner and Sales Director for Long Beach Comic & Horror Con.
Offering a weekend packed with special guests and exhibitors and engaging panels, Long Beach Comic & Horror Con will be open on Saturday, November 3 from 10:00am to 7:00pm, and from10:00am to 5:00pm on Sunday, November 4.
