Fox's Ghosted Panel Brings the Laughs to Comic-Con

By Brian Gallagher — July 22nd, 2017

Fox kicked off San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday with a panel for its highly-anticipated new sitcom Ghosted, with the Ghosted season premiere set for Sunday, October 1 at 8:30 PM ET, sandwiched in between the network's hit animated lineup with The Simpsons Season 29 Premiere at 8 PM ET and the Family Guy Season 15 Premiere at 9 PM ET. If you didn't get a chance to make it to the Q&A panel, we have a new video with panel highlights below, along with reactions from fans who saw the entire pilot episode. If that wasn't enough, we even have a special video where series stars Craig Robinson and Adam Scott play a game of laser tag at Comic-Con.

The fans who were in attendance at Thursday's panel were among the first to see the highly anticipated new action-comedy Ghosted, about the partnership between two polar opposites, a cynical skeptic and a genius "true believer," who are recruited to investigate unexplained phenomena in Los Angeles, all while uncovering a larger mystery that could threaten the existence of the human race. Series stars Craig Robinson, Adam Scott and Ally Walker, along with executive producers Tom Gormican and Kevin Etten, discuss this Fox paranormal buddy comedy. For fans who are in San Diego this weekend, you can participate in a fun event just across the street from the San Diego Convention Center.

A secret government agency, known as The Bureau Underground, has infiltrated a nuclear power plant where alien beings are holding an agent hostage. Fox has partnered with Ultra Zone Laser Tag to create the ultimate laser tag experience where fans can suit up and join the battle, either as an agent or an alien, and go head-to-head with their opponents, after which one team will go home the winner, while the other goes home. Fans in town for Comic-Con have just one more chance to visit this Ghosted Games Laser Tag Experience, on the Hilton Bayfront lawn on Sunday from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Starring Craig Robinson (The Office, This Is the End) and Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies), Ghosted is a single-camera, action-comedy about the unlikely partnership between two down-on-their-luck polar opposites tasked with an even more unlikely mission: saving the human race from aliens. Leroy Wright (Robinson) is a cynical skeptic and former missing persons detective, who, if we're speaking frankly, thinks that "aliens" are a big ole bunch of B.S. and that people who believe in them are certifiably nuts...People like Max Jennifer (Scott). Max is a genius "true believer" in the paranormal who's convinced his wife was abducted by aliens.

At low points in their lives, both Leroy and Max are recruited by Captain Ava Laffrey (Ally Walker, Colony, Sons of Anarchy), a take-no-prisoners, former Air Force test pilot and head of the Bureau Underground, a secret government organization investigating paranormal cases. Lafrey, along with her staff, Barry Shaw (Adeel Akhtar, Unforgotten, The Night Manager), an overly friendly forensic pathologist, and Delilah Ward, a highly opinionated tech specialist, will support Leroy and Max in their quest for answers. Now, this heroic group of underdogs will look into "unexplained activity" in Los Angeles that often leads them to scary, thrilling and hilarious places, as they attempt to uncover the truth and keep the earth rotating on its axis for at least one more day. Tom Gormican, Kevin Etten, Craig Robinson, Adam Scott, Naomi Scott, Oly Obst, Mark Schulman and Jonathan Krisel are executive producers, with Krisel directing the pilot. Take a look at these new videos from Ghosted at San Diego Comic-Con.
