|“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade
HISTORY is setting the stage for SDCC attendees to discover its newest drama series “Knightfall” before it premieres by offering an essential service that is new to the convention – “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” The Holy Grail required protection of the Knights Templar, and SDCC attendees can count on that same protection for their own personal belongings by storing them in HISTORY’s “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” Located along the MLK Promenade in the Gaslamp Quarter, our knights will guard attendees swag while they explore the rest of Comic-Con.
Additionally at the Gaslamp activation location, attendees will be able to take a photo with the Knights Templar, watch a sneak peek of HISTORY’s newest drama series “Knightfall” and preview the Knightfall: Rivals video game on Steam Platform™, coming soon on mobile. Attendees will also be able to pick up a comic book from Titan Comics inspired by “Knightfall” entitled “Truth & Lies,” a prequel to the events in the forthcoming series that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.
“Knightfall” follows the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of destroying the Church itself. “Knightfall” goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th—a date which became synonymous with bad luck—the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. “Knightfall” takes viewers inside the world to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.
“Knightfall” is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio. Don Handfield and Richard Rayner serve as creators and executive producers, with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Jeremy Renner also serving as executive producer. Dominic Minghella is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers from Midnight Radio are Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg. Barry Jossen and Douglas Mackinnon serve as executive producers. The drama stars Tom Cullen (“Downton Abbey”), Pádraic Delaney (The Wind That Shakes the Barley, “The Tudors”), Simon Merrells(“Spartacus,” “Dominion”), Olivia Ross (War and Peace), Ed Stoppard (“The Crown”), Sabrina Bartlett (“DaVinci’s Demons”), Jim Carter (“Downton Abbey”) and Julian Ovenden (“Downton Abbey”).

The Profiles in History’s Hollywood Auction 89 was just a few weeks ago on June 26 – 28th and comprised of the definitive collection Battlestar Galactica & Buck Rogers spaceship filming miniatures. It was 23 spaceships all belonging one Boston based collector named Gary Cannavo that was purchased over a period of 25 years. The miniatures were designed and built by the creators who worked on Star Wars. These are from series that still used the art technology of miniatures before Hollywood switched to CGI.
The owners hope that the collection will stay in tact and be exhibited for fans to be able to enjoy them so they decided to sell in a single lot for an estimated $1,500,000 – $2,000,000
Highlights from the collection include the screen used heart and soul of the Battlestar Galactica rag-tag fleet, the Galactica and the screen used, Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper. From Buck Rogers, Buck’s screen used Star Fighter and Buck’s screen used Ranger 3.
The Tick Takeover will be open to the public Thursday, July 20th through Saturday, July 22nd from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Sunday, July 23rd from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm at the MLK Promenade (corner of 1st and J street).

This Blerd is so excited that we have a premier date and details on how to watch the Star Trek Series. I love Star Trek and watched the original series faithfully as a child. I grew up with the prime directive so am #TeamStarTrek
I’m hoping that I will be able to interview the cast at the upcoming SDCC (pray for me my geeklings!) but no matter what I will be subscribing to CBS Access this fall to binge on the first series led by a woman of color! I’m tuning in for Sonequa Martin and Michelle Yeoh since i’m all for WOCGP (Women of Color Girl Power) but can’t resist Doug Jones (not that I can recognize him .. guffaw).
The new series is paying homage to the original Gene Roddenberry prime directive but is pushing the envelope with some drama amongst the Star Fleet staff. Not that I can blame them being on a ship with the same people has to have some drama! You know people are dating, breaking up, gossiping and just not liking all of their co-workers! it’s human and non human nature! I’m hoping that someone will be a little TOO ambitious and cause some trouble between our captain and her #2!
If you are in the USA CBS is giving a taste with the first episode being broadcast on CBS but after that you have to pay a fee to watch it on CBS All Access. This doesn’t bother me since I have streaming cable and don’t usually have access to CBS anyway. I like a few shows on CBS but not enough to subscribe (still miss Brain Dead such a fun show but not a good match for CBS audience). Hopefully this will not be the only series worthy to watch exclusively on the platform and that they will have a good companion series to keep fans tuning in.
See below for how to see the series and leave a comment on if you plan to subscribe to CBS Access to watch Star Trek: Discovery.
Star Trek: Discovery will launch in the U.S. on Sunday, September 24 with a broadcast premiere that night on the CBS Television Network airing at 8:30-9:30 PM, ET/PT (time approximate following NFL Football and 60 Minutes). The series premiere will also be available on-demand on CBS All Access and the second episode of the series will be available on the service that same night immediately following the broadcast premiere.
After premiere night, all new episodes will be available on-demand weekly on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S. The 15-episode season will be released in two chapters. The first eight episodes will run from Sunday, Sept. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 5. The season will then resume with the second chapter debuting in January 2018.
Space Channel will launch the first two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery on Sunday, September 24 at 8:30 PM ET. The first eight episodes will run from Sunday, September 24 through Sunday, November 5. The season will then resume with the second chapter in January 2018. Every episode will also be available to Space subscribers on the newly launched Space GO app, in addition to being available on Space.ca and participating On Demand channels. Star Trek: Discovery will also stream exclusively in Canada on CraveTV, with full scheduling details to be released in the coming weeks.
Netflix will launch Star Trek: Discovery on Monday, September 25 to countries outside of the U.S. and Canada. The first eight episodes will run from Monday, September 25 through Monday, November 6 with the second chapter in January 2018.
Star Trek: Discovery will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new lifeforms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

This series is turning the Archie comic book we grew up watching in a new direction and I LOVE it! I had a chance to chat with some of the cast and producers at Wondercon where we chatted about the process to bringing the comic book to network TV, that the show is based on the rebooted comic book series and that the hardest part was finding the perfect actors for the roles. Any fan who’s watching has to agree the chemistry and strong acting coupled with the writing has fans tuning in every week!
Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Josie are the core of the series but the entire cast from parents to the supporting cast has created a Riverdale that feels so real … I mean real where everyone is GORGEOUS it is on the CW <guffaw> so it’s still the dream hometown of America but with a naughty twist of teachers dating students, a HS getting pregnant, family rivalry, catty mothers, jerk dads and high school where EVERYONE feels out of place.
The PaleyLive event is one of many Paley Center year-round public programs that offer TV fans the opportunity to engage with the cast and creative teams of their favorite programs in exclusive and intimate events. All PaleyLive programs are selected by the Paley Center to not only to expand society’s understanding of the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, but also for their ability to educate and entertain the public.
