Series-specific programming at Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision will include:
- Revolution — What Powers You?: Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision will take visitors inside the powered-down world of Revolution, the #1 new program of the 2012–13 television season among adults 18–49. Inspired by the hit series — which posits a world without electrical power — Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision will feature analog entertainment experiences, including powered-down networking opportunities, expert Moonshine distillers and a live sculpture demonstration created from reclaimed bicycle parts — and more!
Created by Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and executive produced by J.J. Abrams (Lost, Fringe, Person of Interest), Revolution returns with new episodes on March 25, airing Mondays at 10/9c on NBC. Connect with Revolution on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Revolution or on Twitter at @NBCRevolution. #powerdown
- Chuck Lorre — What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us…?: Television’s top comedy writer/producer offers up controversial and uncensored musings and insights with his book What Doesn’t Kill Us Makes Us Bitter, a curated collection of his irreverent vanity cards which have aired for years at the end of his hit series Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly before finding a home in print. Inside Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision, attendees will experience 3D artistic renderings of vanity cards from the imagination of Chuck Lorre — including a 10-foot television remote control wrapped inside a giant condom. The exhibit invades the space on Friday, March 8, and Saturday, March 9, in conjunction with Lorre’s SXSWi featured session (see below for programming details).
INSIDE THE CW: SUNDAY & MONDAY, MARCH 10–11
- How Do You Like to Watch?: Home to hit series like The Vampire Diaries, Arrow and Supernatural, The CW Network has successfully bridged the storytelling divide between broadcast television and multi-screen digital offerings. The CW’s installation at Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision embraces and celebrates the sweeping demographic and technological changes that are transforming the content delivery business.
The CW’s exhibit will be live on Sunday, March 10 and Monday, March 11. Attendees can step inside the world of the network’s smash hit new series Arrow and learn firsthand how The CW is maximizing the reach of emerging digital platforms to engage with its target demo of Adults 18-34.
- Pitch Your Story: Proving that great storytelling exists in all of us, The CW Network is offering SXSWi attendees the opportunity to pitch their original ideas for a digital series to CWD, The CW’s digital studio, on March 10–11. Attendees visiting the Warner Bros. Tell-A-Vision space on Sunday and Monday will be given the opportunity to make an original on-camera pitch for their digital series ideas for consideration by CWD. Each participant will be asked to sign a standard waiver. Once all entries are received, CWD executives will review the recorded pitches and determine the most effective and promising digital series idea. One lucky storyteller may have the chance to travel to Los Angeles to pitch their digital series ideas directly to industry executives for consideration by CWD.
