Thursday, July 24: Comedy Central Presents "Key & Peele" and Introduces "Moonbeam City" (Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel)

1:30-2:15 p.m. "Key & Peele" stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele who utilize a combination of filmed sketches and live stage segments to examine life in a provocative and irreverent way, from the perspective of two men used to being on the outside looking in. Whether it's satirizing the President, spoofing musical acts, or taking on religion, "Key & Peele" showcases their chemistry, camaraderie and unique point of view, born from their shared background and experiences growing up biracial in a not quite post-racial world. The panel will be moderated by Tom Lennon and include Key, Peele and Director Peter Atencio as they go behind-the-scenes and reveal details on their upcoming fourth season returning this fall.

2:15-3:00 p.m. The party continues with a first look at Comedy Central's newest animated series "Moonbeam City." The series is an absurdist take on the gritty, sex-drenched crime dramas from the 1980s and follows undercover detective Dazzle Novak (voiced by Rob Lowe), a handsome idiot who commits more crimes than most criminals. The show also stars his tyrannical chief, Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks), who won't get off his back and hotshot rookie Rad Cunningham (Will Forte) who is dying to see him fail. With the world against him, "Dazzle" is thrust into a living nightmare: having to do actual police work. Moonbeam City is executive produced by Will Gluck's Olive Bridge Entertainment in association with Titmouse Studios. The panel will include series creator and Executive Producer Scott Gairdner and Executive Producer Tommy Blacha.

Friday, July 25: "Brickleberry" panel (room 24ABC)

5:30-6:30 p.m. Creators and Executive Producers Waco O'Guin and Roger Black, along with David Herman ("Futurama"), Tom Kenny ("SpongeBob SquarePants"), Jerry Minor ("Eastbound & Down") and Natasha Leggero ("Suburgatory," "Burning Love") will be on hand to exclusively premiere an episode from the upcoming third season which debuts on Tuesday, September 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, followed by a live table read and Q&A panel discussion.
