Sunday, October 30 - STITCHERS
Panel from 12:00 - 12:50 p.m. in Room 306AB at the L.A. Convention Center
Recently renewed for a third season, "Stitchers" follows a covert government agency that "stitches" into the memories of the dead to investigate murders and decipher mysteries that otherwise would have gone to the grave. The team includes the highly intelligent and persistent Kirsten Clark, who has an aptitude for technology, but never expected that she'd be hacking into the minds of the recently deceased. Working alongside Kirsten is Cameron, a brilliant neuroscientist whose passion for the program is evident in his work, and Linus, an earnest engineer and communications technician. The secret agency is headed by Maggie, a skilled veteran of covert operations who closely guards the deeper purpose of the Stitchers program. Kirsten's roommate, Camille, a gifted computer science grad student, is recruited to use her skills to assist Kirsten in her role as a "stitcher," as well as LAPD Detective Fisher who provides back-up and support for the team.
The panel will include a Q&A with executive producer Jeffrey Alan Schechter and cast members Ritesh Rajan ("Linus Ahluwalia"), Damon Dayoub ("Detective Quincy Fisher") and Sarah Davenport ("Ivy Brown"). The panel will be moderated by veteran comic book editor and writer Jordan B. Gorfinkel (Batman Editor, co-creator "3 O'Clock Club," "Stitchers" fanboy). Panel attendees will receive exclusive show-branded souvenirs.
