Magnum P.I. Exclusive Screening and Panel, 4:15–5:30 PM, Room 6A
Magnum P.I. is a modern take on the classic series starring Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator.

A charming rogue, an American hero, and a die-hard Detroit Tigers fan, Magnum has Juliet Higgins and her Dobermans to keep him in line, as well as his trusted buddies and fellow POW survivors TC and Rick when he needs backup on a job.

With keys to a vintage Ferrari in one hand, aviator sunglasses in the other, and an Old Düsseldorf longneck chilling in the fridge, Thomas Magnum is back on the case!

Join series stars Jay Hernandez and Perdita Weeks and executive producers Peter Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim for an exclusive sneak peek of the premiere episode of the new CBS series followed by a panel discussion.

Magnum P.I. Takeover
On Thursday, July 19, CBS will cruise the streets of Comic-Con in a branded Ferrari 488 to promote the return of Magnum P.I. Brand ambassadors will distribute red sunglasses and Hawaiian leis.

Watch Magnum P.I. this Fall on Mondays at 9/8c on CBS and CBS All Access.

Friday, July 20

Star Trek: Discovery Panel, 1:30–2:30 PM, Hall H
Over 50 years ago, the world was first introduced to what would quickly become a cultural phenomenon. Star Trek inspired developments in science and technology, broke social barriers, and transported viewers around the universe to new adventures and uncharted frontiers.

Last fall, Star Trek: Discovery continued that tradition and followed the voyages of Starfleet aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. Join the cast and producers of this CBS All Access series to look back on Season 1 and find out where the crew is headed as it transports into its second season.

Cast members scheduled to appear include Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Anthony Rapp, Wilson Cruz, Mary Chieffo, and Anson Mount (who will be introduced as Captain Christopher Pike in the second season), alongside Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin. The panel will be moderated by series guest star Tig Notaro, who will appear as Chief Engineer Reno.

Stream the entire first season of Star Trek: Discovery, exclusively on CBS All Access.

The Twilight Zone Marathon Screening, 7:15–9:15 PM, Room 6A
The Twilight Zone new original series will be coming soon to CBS All Access in a modern reimagining of the iconic series that took viewers to another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. It was a journey into a wondrous land of imagination for five years on CBS, from 1959–1964.

The godfather of sci-fi series, the show explored humanity’s hopes, despairs, pride, and prejudice in metaphoric ways conventional dramas could not.

Please join us for a special marathon screening and a look back at some of the fan-favorite episodes from the original series. Concessions and an exclusive giveaway item will be provided.

Stream The Twilight Zone on CBS All Access.

Thursday, July 18 Through Saturday, July 20

From Thursday, July 19 through Sunday, July 22, CBS will offer free “intergalactic” rides throughout San Diego’s Gaslamp District in pedicabs inspired by the design of the U.S.S. Discovery’s captain’s chair.

The pedicabs will feature the chair’s distinctive stitched black seats as well as video monitors built into its armrests, which in this case will screen trailers for the highly anticipated second season of the show. As an added touch, each vehicle will display an illuminated U.S.S. Discovery delta shield on the back.
