#1
The Disney/ABC Television Group (DATG) is looking to make its mark at the 2009 Comic-Con convention with a slate of series, including repeat favorites, new shows, an animated series, an upcoming new holiday animated special, an author's roundtable, futuristic action-adventure/sci-fi series and a cast reunion.

The event takes place in San Diego, California from 23-25 July.

Lost executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse will participate in their final convention appearance for the series. ABC's new drama series FlashForward will present its first-ever panel, featuring executive producers David S Goyer, Marc Guggenheim and Brannon Braga, as well as cast members Joseph Fiennes, John Cho, Courtney B. Vance, Christine Woods and Peyton List.

Patricia Heaton, star of the upcoming ABC comedy series The Middle, makes her Comic-Con debut hosting a sneak peek screening of the series for her fans.

ABC Studios' syndicated action-adventure series Legend of the Seeker will unveil a sneak peek of their upcoming second season; ABC Family's The Middleman will bring Comic-Con fans the first cast reunion since the series' completion, as well as a table read of the lost 13th episode, The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse, which was never produced but has been turned into a graphic novel.

After last year's standing room only panel, television's number one animated series for kids, Disney's Phineas and Ferb, returns to Comic-Con. This year creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff 'Swampy' Marsh, as well as cast members Vincent Martella, Olivia Olson and Tyler Mann, will participate in a Q&A session, preview a sneak peek of new episodes and offer the chance to win Phineas and Ferb prizes.

The holiday special Prep and Landing, ABC's first-ever collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios, will receive a special preview at an animation panel headlined by Academy Award winner and executive producer John Lasseter.

New York Times best-selling author Eoin Colfer previews his book, And Another Thing, the sixth installment in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series, as part of the panel The Care and Feeding of a Series. He will be joined by panelists Brian Herbert, Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie, D.J. MacHale, Holly Black and Tony DiTerlizzi. And Another Thing will be published by Hyperion Books, the Disney/ABC Television Group's in-house imprint, in October.

DATG joins an increased Disney presence from past years that includes Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures' first-ever 3D panel with veteran directors Robert Zemeckis and Tim Burton and animation legends Hayao Miyazaki and John Lasseter. D23: The Official Community for Disney Fans and the Walt Disney Archives, will premiere a few never-before-exhibited artifacts from their collection of sci-fi, fantasy and adventure film costumes and props from Tron, The Rocketeer and The Black Hole.

The display will be open throughout the event. Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will also be in attendance, screening their new digital motion comic series Time Jumper from Stan Lee.
