Bruce Campbell To Host New Original Series Last Fan Standing For CONtv
The forthcoming digital streaming service CONtv has announced it will be kicking off production for a new original series, Last Fan Standing, a game show hosted and produced by fan-favorite actor Bruce Campbell. Created in partnership with Pop Quiz Entertainment, the series will be filmed live on the ground at Comic Con conventions nationwide with first show taping on Saturday, January 10 at New Orleans Comic Con. Last Fan Standing engages event attendees through a proprietary audience response system, where all patrons plays along, competing for cash and prizes. The show culminates with the top four players vying for the coveted tilted as Campbell hunts for the Last Fan Standing.
Scheduled to launch next month, CONtv is a joint venture between Cinedigm and Wizard World, a leading producer of live pop culture multimedia conventions. Last Fan Standing will be shot throughout various Wizard World events throughout 2015, and will premiere on CONtv later this year.
Wonder how much Thor’s hammer weighs? Or how much damage the Vorpal blade would inflict on a 5th-Level Cleric? Fans finally find vindication in their hours studying comics, films, movies and more with host and horror icon Campbell in this outrageous new quiz show. A collaboration between his own production entity and Pop Quiz Entertainment, this will be Campbell’s first digital series.
