I am super excited to share another LA trip for Disney. This time around, I will be checking out the Star Wars Rebels Event, and will be going back to ABC. It’s a crazy fun itinerary, one that is full of so many things, you just have to see for yourselves!
It all begins on Sunday, May 4th. This is when I will be heading out to LA bright and early. Early enough that I will have some time to play in the city. You’ll want to follow along on social media.
We will begin our night with a brief presentation by Vanessa Marshall (voice of “Hera” in STAR WARS REBELS – @vanmarshall) including an exclusive sneak peek at the extended STAR WARS REBELS trailer and character videos! Vanessa will also do a brief informal Q&A afterwards with us bloggers.
Then we will have some cocktails and a buffet-style dinner at Preston’s Restaurant inside the Loews Hollywood Hotel. This is a perfect way to spend May the Fourth (be with you). You can follow along on twitter with #StarWarsRebelsEvent.
Then comes Monday, May 5th. Today we will head over to the Walt Disney Studios. We will spend a little time at the magical Legends Plaza before we have a screening of sizzle footage from Disney’s upcoming release slate. Then we will have a private screening of MILLION DOLLAR ARM.
Follow this portion of the day on Twitter #MillionDollarArmEvent
We will spend the afternoon at ABC first enjoying a Cinco de Mayo lunch and Mix & Mingle with ABC Showrunners! Chat about upcoming season finales and summer premieres & find out what it’s like behind the scenes. Executive Producers currently confirmed to attend:
· From “Black Box” #BlackBox: Ilene Chaiken and Amy Holden Jones
· From “Mistresses” #Mistresses: Rina Mimoun, KJ Steinberg and Bob Sertner
· From “Extreme Weight Loss” #ExtremeWeightLoss: JD Roth
· With hopefully more to come…
Make sure to follow along on Twitter #ABCTVEvent.
Then we will be watching the “Nashville” episodes 221 “All Or Nothing With Me” and 222 “On The Other Hand” (season finale), followed by a 15-20 minute Q&A with Executive Producers Dee Johnson and Callie Khouri. Make sure to follow this portion along on Twitter Tweet using #ABCTVEvent and #Nashville.
After that we are heading over to the lot for JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! When we arrive the show publicist Candice Ashton will meet us and take us up to the green room. While we are there Executive Producer Jill Leiderman will stop by to meet & greet us all. Once the show starts, we will get to watch from the green room (Sally Field and Julia Roberts are the guests)–but that is subject to change. Once the show wraps, Jimmy’s trusty security guard Guillermo will escort everyone into the studio to take photos and chit chat. You can follow along on Twitter. #ABCTVEvent and #Kimmel.
Only after chocolate sundaes for all at the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain & Chocolate Shop & Disney Studio Store do we call it a night.
Now we come to Tuesday, May 6 where we will be treated to breakfast at the Hilton Garden Inn. The next part of the itinerary is one that is very, very rare. We will have a little free time in the afternoon. After taking in a little of the city of angels we will get ready to go to the premiere of Million Dollar Arm. Get ready to follow along #MillionDollarArmEvent.
On our way over to the interviews, we will stop at the famous In-N-Out Burger for lunch!
After lunch we will be interviewing the real Dinesh Patel, Rinku Singh & JB Bernstein as well as Madhur Mittal (“Dinesh Patel”) Suraj Sharma (“Rinku Singh”), Aasif Mandvi (“Aash Vasudevan”), and Jon Hamm (“JB Bernstein”). Shortly after the interview we will attend the MILLION DOLLAR ARM Pitching Contest as well as the MILLION DOLLAR ARM Red Carpet & Pre-Game Festivities. We will then attend the premiere screening of MILLION DOLLAR ARM.
Wednesday, May 7 will be my last day in LA, but the excitement will be far from over. Follow along at #ABCTVEvent and #Mistresses
We will head over to The Culver Studios where we will view “Mistresses” episodes 113 “I Choose You” (Season One finale) and the Season Two premiere episode. We will then tour available sets, get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the wardrobe department and get photo & interview opportunities with as many stars of the show as are available.
All of this before we call it a trip! Whew! I will be busy, but look at all the amazing thing I will be doing! Make sure to follow along! And tell me, what part looks most exciting to you?
