E!'s Ben Lyons and Syfy's Jael de Pardo (Fact or Faked) To Co-Host E! Live from the Red Carpet: The Syfy/E! Comic Con Party

New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA - July 6, 2011 - In continuing with its yearly tradition of delivering the ultimate fan experience at Comic-Con - and winding down the convention with the hottest party of the entire weekend - Syfy has unveiled its plans for participation at Comic-Con 2011.

As in years past, a multitude of talent from Syfy's hottest series will participate in interactive panels, where fans can get their burning questions answered and get all the behind-the-scenes secrets on their favorite shows! On Syfy's docket for this year are hit Warehouse 13, Eureka, Being Human and Sanctuary, as well as new series Alphas, (premiering July 11 @ 10pm). Syfy will also hold a screening on Friday night (July 22), where fans can get an early sneak-peek of that evening's new episode of Haven as well as the following Monday's new episode of Eureka.

Outside of the convention hall, attendees will once again get a taste of all things Syfy at the fan-favorite Café Diem, across the street from the convention center at the Hard Rock Hotel (207 5th Ave). This fictional local hot spot heavily featured in the popular series Eureka will serve up Syfy fare both on and off the menu and will remain the perfect place for fans to relax and refuel during a long day at the Con.

In addition, Syfy Ventures, Syfy's portfolio of businesses and joint ventures, and Her Universe(TM), a leader in female genre merchandise, will unveil the first pieces in the Syfy branded collection of apparel and accessories for the growing female science fiction fan base. Comic-Con will be the premier venue for the first launch items, including convention exclusives, starting July 20 and running through July 24. Additionally, the items will be available at both Syfy.com and Heruniverseshop.com.

As previously announced, On Saturday, July 24th, Syfy will partner with entertainment powerhouse E! for its most popular Comic-Con event: the star-studded party at the Hotel Solamar in the heart of the Gaslamp district. This invite-only, exclusive soiree has cemented its place as the hottest ticket at the convention and the most talked-about party of the weekend, and this year is no different as Syfy teams up with E! to continue the tradition. E! Live from the Red Carpet: The Syfy/E! Comic Con Party will stream the festivities in real time on both E!
