This Thursday night after the Season 1 finale of Keifer Sutherland's "Touch" on Fox, a new related web series from she show's creator Tim Kring ("Heroes") will debut online.
"Daybreak," a collaboration between Kring and AT&T, will consist of five 10-minute online films, each "exploring different facets of a complex character journey." (Hint: The mysterious "dodecahedron" object introduced in a recent "Touch" episode, will appear again in the show's finale and then become a "central character" in "Daybreak.")
Here in Raleigh, AT&T is sponsoring a viewing party of the "Touch" finale and the web series premiere at Tobacco Road Sports Cafe. Fans of this blog and the Tech Junkie Blog are exclusively invited to attend. Seating is limited so if you're interested, shoot me an email pronto and I'll get you on the list.
There will be more on tap than just TV-watching at Thursday's party. There will be free food and drink, amazing company (ahem), and AT&T is giving away a free Android smart phone (it normally sells for $200). It's the phone featured in "Daybreak" and Tech Junkie Blog says it's the best Android phone available right now. To qualify for the giveaway, you must attend the event and tweet about the show and the devices. The first 10 folks to arrive also get some cool AT&T swag bags.
To recap, the viewing party is from 8 to 11 at Tobacco Road on Glenwood South. Raleigh is one of just six cities across the country where AT&T is hosting a viewing event. Those attending will also get a chance to ask questions of Kring and others associated with "Daybreak." (Watch a trailer of the "Daybreak" web series.)
Again -- if you're seriously interested in attending the Raleigh viewing party, send me an email!
