It looks like the cast and crew of Syfy’s Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakening is heading to San Diego Comic-Con International 2016 according to actress Stacey Dash in recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
What are you doing in Sharknado 4?
I’m the mayor of Chicago. It was really fun. I would say I’m a Republican mayor. I never even heard of Sharknado until I did it. I’m proudly going to Comic-Con for them.
Sharknado 4 will take place five years after the East Coast was ravaged in Sharknado 3. Fin, his family and the cosmos have been blissfully sharknado-free in the intervening years, but now sharks and ‘nados! – are being whipped up in places (and ways) that are completely unexpected…
The film will premiere on Syfy on July 31, 2016 which means Syfy will be promoting the film heavily at Comic-Con including through their own show SYFY PRESENTS LIVE FROM COMIC-CON.
Sharknado: The 4th Awakens
Syfy will invade the world’s largest pop culture convention this summer with SYFY PRESENTS LIVE FROM COMIC-CON, a three-night telecast directly from the heart of San Diego Comic-Con. The special – Syfy’s first-ever live broadcast from Comic-Con – will air on the network Thursday, July 21 through Saturday, July 23 at 8/7c.
Each night, SYFY PRESENTS LIVE FROM COMIC-CON will bring the Con’s non-stop action directly to viewers across the country, featuring celebrity interviews, breaking news and behind-the-scenes reports. The hosted live broadcast will highlight the biggest stars, top franchise reveals, panel news, exclusive sneak peeks of the hottest films, as well as audience interaction, games, party coverage and much more.
“For nearly two decades, Syfy has been a mainstay at Comic-Con,” said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Each and every year, we can’t wait to get to San Diego to share our mutual fandom and passion for all things pop culture with our viewers. And this year, we’re thrilled to extend that immediate, first-hand access to those at home as well.”
“Our goal with SYFY PRESENTS LIVE FROM COMIC-CON is to give everyone the experience of being on the convention floor, at the events, or just walking through the frenzied streets of the Gaslamp District … with hundreds of thousands of their closest friends,” said Heather Olander, Senior Vice President, Alternative Series, Development and Production, Syfy.
