Warner Archive Celebrates V: The Original Mini-Series

Friday, July 19 – 10:00-11:00am

Fifty spaceships, each three miles across, hover ominously above Earth’s major cities. The Visitors that emerge are humanlike in appearance and extend the hand of friendship—or is it?

Come see creator/producer/writer/director Kenneth Johnson (The Incredible Hulk), series star Marc Singer (Beastmaster, Arrow) and some possible surprise guests along with the Warner Archive Podcast team of D.W. Ferranti and Matthew Patterson and moderator Gary Miereanu as they celebrate this landmark mini-series and discuss the newly-remastered Blu-ray presentation of the heralded production coming from Warner Archive later in 2019. 6DE

Ferranti & Matthew Patterson, and some very special surprise panelists will offer a glimpse of remastered footage that’s been restored to its original primetime network form as aired, and they’ll discuss the endearing, landmark animated series . . . as well as several of Hanna-Barbera’s best-loved primetime animated productions. From The Flintstones to Jonny Quest, the room will be filled with animated excitement. And moderator Gary Miereanu will have just the right giveaways to match the fun. 6A
