The appearances are in partnership with the New York Television Festival.
A critically acclaimed thriller, Fringe centers on an unlikely trio uncovering a mystery involving a series of unbelievable events and delves beneath the surface as the threat of a larger, more disturbing pattern blurs the line between the possible and the impossible. Fringe, from J.J. Abrams (Lost), Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci – the team behind Star Trek, Mission: Impossible III and Alias – and fellow executive producers Jeff Pinkner (Lost, Alias) and Bryan Burk (Lost, Alias), airs Tuesdays at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX. The series, from Bad Robot Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, is shot in New York City.
The 2009 New York Comic Con takes place February 6-8 in the Jacob Javits Center in New York, NY. Guests of Honor include Brian Michael Bendis, Carmine Infantino, Geoff Johns, Takashi Miike, Grant Morrison and Bruce Timm and Special Guests include Seth Green, J.J.
