Themed Sessions and Series Panels on "Hawaii Five-0" and "DexterTM" to Feature CBS's Techiest Crime Fighters and the Anti-Heroes of SHOWTIME

CBS News' "The Early Show" and CBS Interactive's TV.com and GameSpot.com Will Cover Comic-Con's Hottest News, Events and Shows

SHOWTIME to Launch "Dexter Game On," an Interactive Game Exclusively for Comic-Con; SHOWTIME's Anti-Hero Theme Will Be Prominently Branded Inside and Outside the Convention Site

CBS and Entertainment Weekly to Jointly Host a "Fandemonium" Party, Where Convention Fans Will Interact with CBS Stars and EW.com Bloggers "The Big Bang Theory" Cast to Sign Autographs, Attend CBS/EW "Fandemonium" Party And Headline a Warner Bros. Television Panel

CBS's heroes and the anti-heroes of SHOWTIME will make their mark at Comic-Con 2010 in San Diego from July 21 through 25. The company's extensive presence through panels, a booth, autograph signings and a joint "Fandemonium" party with Entertainment Weekly will provide Comic-Con fans with multiple opportunities to engage with CBS and Showtime Networks' popular stars and creative teams.

The SHOWTIME and CBS panels will include a session on the three-time Emmy(R) Award-nominated and Peabody Award-winning series "Dexter;" a special SHOWTIME Anti-Hero panel featuring the stars and creative talent behind some of television's most subversive characters, including "Weeds," "Nurse Jackie" and "Californication;" a session on the highly anticipated return of the iconic series, "Hawaii Five-0;" and CBS's "Teching Out on TV" panel comprised of stars who play the beloved tech-geek characters on "NCIS," "NCIS: LA" and "Criminal Minds" to be joined by both the creator and technical expert behind "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

Entertainment Weekly and CBS will jointly celebrate all things pop culture - including the fans - at their "fandemonium" event on Thursday, July 22. The party will bring together stars from CBS's primetime line-up, EW.com bloggers Michael Ausiello and Jeff "Doc" Jensen, as well as fans attending the convention for an evening of fun, food, drinks and a live Q&A moderated by Entertainment Weekly Managing Editor, Jess Cagle.

At the CBS Booth (#4129), a fun mix of CBS and SHOWTIME talent and producers will sign autographs. Among many giveaways and contests is the chance to win a vacation getaway to the filming location of "Hawaii Five-0" on the island of Oahu. The cast will be on hand exclusively to sign free, specially-produced Comic-Con/"Hawaii Five-0" collectors' posters.

Since no one would savor Comic-Con more than the brilliant and quirky characters on the phenomenally popular CBS comedy series, "The Big Bang Theory," it's more than fitting that, in conjunction with Warner Bros. Television, the celebrated series' cast will interact with fans at the CBS booth, the Warner Bros. booth (#4545) and the CBS/Entertainment Weekly "fandemonium" party. On Friday, July 23, the cast will participate in Warner Bros. Television's "The Big Bang Theory" panel (12:45 to 1:45 PM in Ballroom 20).

Those who cannot physically attend Comic-Con can follow the extensive on-site video and text coverage on CBS Interactive's TV.com and Gamespot.com. TV.com's editorial team will provide round-the-clock coverage of the biggest news on the hottest television shows at the convention, including interviews and coverage broadcast from CBS booth #4129 on the exhibit floor. GameSpot.com, covering Comic-Con from a video game perspective, will feature stage demonstrations as well as interviews with the biggest movers and shakers in the gaming industry.

For THE EARLY SHOW's coverage from San Diego, special correspondent and "Superfan" Tyler McGill will mix with the ultimate fans of pop culture and report live from the convention on Friday, July 23. This is McGill's fourth special assignment for the morning show since his impressive on-air debut last month to discuss his 218-mile walk from Boston to New York to win Celtics playoff tickets.

Additionally, Showtime Networks' SHO.com is launching a dedicated Comic-Con microsite which will host the season five "Dexter" trailer and content from the Anti-Hero panel, both to be showcased after their respective panels.

SHOWTIME's anti-hero messaging will be prominently featured throughout Comic-Con with high-impact advertising both inside and outside of the convention center. The official lanyards for the over 130,000 Comic-Con attendees will be branded by SHOWTIME's anti-hero creative, and in a media company first, so will every shuttle bus at Comic-Con.

SHOWTIME will also launch "Dexter Game On" (http://www.dextergameon.com/), an interactive game exclusively for Comic-Con where players will step into Dexter's mind and unlock content from season five. As devoted "Dexter" fans know, all of Dexter's victims are marked with a small incision on their right cheek, and fans at Comic-Con can show their love for the series by sporting a "Dexter" cheek slash tattoo. SHOWTIME will distribute over 100,000 lick-'n-stick tattoos throughout all four days of Comic-Con. Fans are encouraged to take pictures of themselves at various locations around the convention and upload them to the "Dexter Game On" site. As they play throughout the weekend, gamers have the chance to unlock exclusive content and pick up "Dexter"-themed merchandise including season four DVDs.

Additional details about the panels:

The Anti-Heroes of SHOWTIME (Thurs., July 22, 4:45-5:45 PM, Ballroom 20)

H50 will explore the origins of the Five-0 team and build on an already rich mythology. Stars Daniel Dae Kim ("Lost") and Grace Park ("Battlestar Galactica"), Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci ("Star Trek") and Peter M. Lenkov ("24"), along with Director Len Wiseman ("Underworld") will offer an exclusive sneak peek at the series and an in-depth discussion of how they plan to marry their genre sensibilities with a classic police procedural. Additionally, fans at the panel will have an opportunity to win three cast-signed collector's surfboards.

CBS's Teching Out on TV (Sat., July 24, 2:00-3:00 PM, Room 7AB)

Since the debut of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" 10 years ago, the use of technology has increasingly become a major character of sorts in many of today's most popular crime procedurals, including the CBS series "CSI: Miami," "CSI: NY," "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles" and "Criminal Minds." How has technology changed - on and off screen - since the premiere of "CSI"? How much of the technology used on these shows is real vs. artistic license? How has the use of technology on these shows influenced the real world? Anthony Zuiker, "CSI" creator and executive producer of "CSI," "CSI: Miami" and "CSI: NY," will moderate a discussion with three of television's best-known tech wiz's - Pauley Perrette (NCIS Forensic Specialist Abby Sciuto on "NCIS"), Kirsten Vangsness (FBI Technical Analyst Penelope Garcia on "Criminal Minds") and Barrett Foa (NCIS Tech Operator Eric Beal on "NCIS: Los Angeles") - as well as "CSI's" former technical advisor and current supervising producer, Richard Catalani. (The Twitter Hashtag for this panel is #TechTV. Some of the panelists Twitter handles are: @PauleyP, @BarrettFoa, @Vangsness and @Zuiker.)
