(Get a sense of some of what happened at last year’s Con-Con.)
As the press release from Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment and TNT notes, the 2011 Con-Con will again give “Leverage” fans from around the world the opportunity to “descend on the city for the opportunity to meet the team behind TNTs hit caper series at the shows one-and-only official fan convention.”
The release continues:
Last year’s Con-Con drew hundreds of enthusiasts for a series of events at the historic Governor Hotel in downtown Portland. This years events will include Q&As with some of the cast; autograph and photo sessions; an evening reception hosted by TNT and an official banquet, to name a few. The fourth season of Leverage is currently in production in the Portland area and will premiere on TNT Sunday, June 26.
Con-Con 2011 returns to the Governor Hotel, which has been used as a location for several episodes of Leverage. Cast members including Academy Award® winner Timothy Hutton(Nathan Ford), Beth Riesgraf (Parker), Gina Bellman (Sophie Deveraux) and Aldis Hodge (Alec Hardison)are scheduled to attend. In addition, executive producer Dean Devlin (producer of Independence Day, The Patriot andThe Librarian trilogy) and creators/executive producers John Rogers (Transformers) and Chris Downey (The King of Queens), the creative minds behind the series, are set to be on hand to take part in panel discussions and Q&A sessions. More guests will be announced in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, cast and crew are filming the next season around Portland. Season four premieres June 26 on TNT.
