UPDATE: Here’s the RSVP Link for the screening! Be sure to read fine print, yada yada yada! Good luck!
We’ve got news from USA Network and one of it’s long running hit shows, Psych and their plans for SDCC!
First, the Psych Panel will be on Thursday, July 18th and attended by stars James Roday, Dulé Hill, Corbin Bernsen, Maggie Lawson, Timothy Omundson, and Kirsten Nelson. Creator and executive producer Steve Franks, and executive producers Chris Henze and Kelly Kulchak will also be on hand during the panel which is to be hosted by recurring guest star, Cary Elwes. There hasn’t been a time announced as of yet, but I’m sure details will soon be coming. I do know in years past, the show has been part of the Ballroom 20 crowd, though with other extremely popular shows making moves to Hall H, this could be a possibility as well.
The higher ups at USA are letting fans choose one of the scripts that will be used to fulfill the 10 episode order for the eight and final season of the show. Voting begins tomorrow and lasts until July 12th. You can vote for your choice by visiting the “voting page” here Here are the scripts you can choose from:
· TELETHON – In a classic “whodunit?” case with a PSYCH twist, Shawn and Gus investigate a murder that Shawn is convinced was committed by the beloved host of Santa Barbara’s annual Children’s Hospital Telethon. There’s only one problem – the host was seen by hundreds of thousands of people on live television during the exact time the murder occurred elsewhere. Can Shawn steal the show, poke a hole in this rock-solid alibi, and prove the host did it? Or will Shawn fail in front of his biggest audience yet?
· DREAM THERAPY – From acclaimed director James Roday (“Mr. Yin Presents…”, “Heeeeere’s Lassie”), comes a new vision in terror: “Nightmare on State Street!” In the episode, an exhausted Gus enters dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors. But after this, nothing is ever again what it seems… He soon realizes that in dreams, no one can hear you scream!
· FOOD TRUCK – When the well-known owner of a beloved Santa Barbara food truck is mysteriously murdered, Shawn and Gus, fans of delicious flavor, are determined to solve the crime as only they can. They go undercover as proprietors of the PSYCH Naptime Food Truck, and soon discover that the high-profit world of Santa Barbara’s mobile food business is cutthroat, insular and a place of many secrets – many of them worth killing for.
In addition to this juicy bit of information, the show is holding a midnight screening of the upcoming Psych: The Musical, which is a two hour musical (duh) episode airing sometime this winter. It will be held the night before, so July 17th – which is Preview Night. No other information on location of that screening or how you can attend at this time, but be sure to keep your eyes and ears peeled… and of course as soon as we know something, we’ll be sure to post it!
