SCREAM 2007 Will Tape October 19 At The Greek Theatre In Los Angeles

SAN DIEGO, July 26 -- This October, a full moon will be out when Spike TV presents the second annual televised SCREAM 2007, a two-hour event honoring the best in the Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Comic genres. At the San Diego Convention today, Spike TV partnered with Comic-Con to announce the "Comic-Con Icon Award" as well as this year's location and tape date for SCREAM 2007.

Today, Spike TV held a SCREAM 2007 panel session moderated by musician, actor and poet Henry Rollins, which featured Linda Blair ("The Exorcist"), Mark Burg ("Saw" franchise producer), Sid Haig ("The Devil's Rejects") and comic book writer Robert Kirkman. The discussion focused on the long overdue need to honor the creative talent behind Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Comic genres that drive pop culture and the box office. A special guest appearance was also made by one of the top writers in modern comics, Neil Gaiman, the new recipient of SCREAM 2007's "Comic-Con Icon Award." To see all the action from Spike TV's SCREAM 2007 panel at Comic-Con, viewers can log-on to ifilm.com and spiketv.com.

"I'm thrilled to announce the return of SCREAM and our continuing partnership with Comic-Con International," said Casey Patterson, Executive Producer and Senior Vice President, Event Production for Spike TV. "Together with Comic-Con we're honored to announce Neil Gaiman as The 2007 recipient of the Comic-Con Icon Award, which will be presented on the Scream 2007 telecast. Scream was one of the most successful events in Spike TV history and this year's show will feature more world premieres, fan generated award categories, the biggest stars from the horror, sci-fi, fantasy and comic book genres and killer musical performances. Scream 2007 will tape on October 19th under a full moon at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles."

Upon receiving the "Comic-Con Icon Award," Gaiman said, "Good to know I'm an icon. Maybe they'll make little dolls of me and put it on their dashboards!"

Additional highlights of Spike TV's participation at Comic-Con from July 26-29 include a SCREAM 2007 booth offering autograph sessions with Blair, 10 autographed Stan Lee Hasbro Figure sweepstakes and premium giveaways every hour. In addition, Spike TV will be holding a casting call everyday from 1-3 PM at the booth for people in costume to get the chance to win tickets to the upcoming SCREAM 2007 taping. Dimpy Sethi, head costume designer for SCREAM 2007, will serve as judge. This contest will also be filmed for an upcoming episode of SpikeTV.com's original digital series, "Geek-Ray Vision." This series brings viewers a weekly inside scoop on the coolest films, music, gadgets, comic books and video games from the hottest geek locations.

SCREAM 2006 was the first event to pay homage to the multi-billion dollar horror, sci-fi and fantasy industries. Hosted by Rosario Dawson, Rose McGowen and Marley Shelton -- the women of Quentin Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez's horror film "Grindhouse" -- SCREAM 2006 was the #1 rated awards show launch in Spike TV history. The event was also #1 with Men 18-34 in all of broadcast and cable in it's time period.
