About Site

The TV Watchtower

The TV Watchtower was first founded in June 2009.  In the past 7 years, the site has expanded to four regular contributors and numerous guest contributors covering such high profile events as San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic-Con, WonderCon, Los Angeles PaleyFest, as well as exclusive studio set visits — ranging from Nova Scotia to New Orleans (which includes sets in Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Austin, Albuquerque, and more) — in addition to covering red carpet events from San Francisco to San Diego and Los Angeles.

It is our goal to provide previews, commentary, interviews, photos, and video coverage from exclusive television and film events, including behind-the-scenes sneak peaks of the hottest and most intriguing entertainment today.
