The official schedule for San Diego Comic Con 2010 will be unleashed in the next four days but some networks have confirmed their panels. Showtime for one, is not only promoting "Dexter" this year, but also non- sci-fi/mystery/geek-loved series "Californication", "Nurse Jackie" and "Weeds".
These so-called three anti-hero series will occupy the convention's first day Thursday, July 22 at Ballroom 20 at 4:45 P.M. with LA Times' Geoff Boucher as moderator. David Duchovny and creator Tom Kapinos represent "Californication", Mary-Louise Parker and creator Jenji Kohan represent "Weeds", while co-creator Linda Wallem represents "Nurse Jackie". There is no mention yet of Edie Falco's participation for "Jackie".
Meanwhile, "Dexter" will have its sole panel at 6 P.M. in the same room. Attending as supports are Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Desmond Harrington, showrunner Chip Johannessen as well as executive producers John Goldwyn, Sara Colleton and Manny Coto.
On related news, The CW's "Smallville" will hold its final Comic Con panel on Sunday, July 25. Tom Welling, who had only appeared once at the Con in the show's nine seasons, will attend this year along with Erica Durance, Cassidy Freeman, Justin Hartley and showrunners Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson. Writer/producer Geoff Johns would be the moderator.
There is also a rumor that Entertainment Weekly would be moderating a two-man panel that boasts none other than geeks favorites, J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon. It remains a mystery but fanboys will find out soon because the Day One schedule of the Con, including dates and rooms, will be announced July 8. Schedule for Day Two until Day Four will be announced from July 9 to 11.
