USA Network revealed its line-up for New York Comic Con this year, which will include panels for the new mind-bending drama Falling Water, and the official companion book to the series Mr. Robot.
On Friday, Oct. 7, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail and show writer Courtney Looney will discuss the first and only official book tie-in to their award-winning series. Titled Mr. Robot: Red Wheelbarrow, the book is based on Elliot's journal, which he had been keeping following the events of season_1.0 and into the beginning of season_2.0.
"It’s not meant to be this promotional thing," Esmail told USA Network, "but an actual authentic representation of what Elliot was going through in all that missing time -- which is not included in the show."
New York Comic Con-exclusive advance copies will also be available after the panel for signing.
Then, on Saturday, Oct. 8, NYCC will host a panel on the new series Falling Water, USA's highly anticipated drama about the lives of three strangers who come to realize that they are each dreaming separate parts of a single shared dream -- and that the ability to control people’s dreams means the power to control the world.
Panelists include executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Blake Masters (Brotherhood), along with stars Lizzie Brochere (“Tess”), Will Yun Lee (“Taka”), and Zak Orth (“Bill Boerg"). The panel will discuss what’s to come in the series -- as well as the many mysteries surrounding what happens when we sleep.
