Panel About Popular Series Will be Followed by Autographing
Norwalk, CT, December 29, 2008: Seth Green and Matthew Senreich are set to appear as Special Guests at New York Comic Con (NYCC) where they will be joined by Breckin Meyer, Geoff Johns and Kevin Shinick on a panel discussing all aspects of the popular Adult Swim series Robot Chicken. Now in its fourth season, the network’s Emmy-winning series uses stop-motion animation to bring pop-culture parodies to life in a modern take on the variety/sketch show format. The panelists will be available to sign Robot Chicken material in the VIP Lounge after the session and signing cards will be provided.
Green and Senreich have enjoyed enormous success as creators of Robot Chicken and they have enlisted the help of numerous guest voice actors, including Conan O’Brien, Hayden Panettiere, Hugh Hefner, Carrie Fisher and George Lucas, among others, to help catapult the series to fame and success. In addition to the Robot Chicken series, Green and Senreich have also created two Star Wars-themed specials: the Emmy-nominated Robot Chicken: Star Wars from 2007 and its follow-up, Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode II, which premiered last November.
