Tower Prep Premieres Tonight: And You Thought Your School Was A Prison For Gifted Kids?

  • ScifiMafia
Premiering tonight on Cartoon Network, Tower Prep is a new live-action, hour-long series aimed at young adults. The show follows a group of teens with special powers held at a mysterious boarding school of an undisclosed location and agenda.

If you thought your high school experience was odd, try not remembering how you got to this prep school in the first place (and in one character’s case, not even remembering anything before arriving at said school) and being faced with nameless adult authority figures. Yes, it’s just “Head Master” or “Nurse” to these kids, but this is no Xavier’s Institute for Higher Learning.

Executive producer and writer, Paul Dini (Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), of comics and animation cred, talks about the inspiration behind the series:

“This was an idea that always intrigued me ever since I went to boarding school some years back.

Although Sundays are known as "Kids' Day" at the San Diego Comic-Con, there's still enough horror oriented content being offered on the final day of the 2010 show to keep fans sticking around "America's Finest City" for at least one more go-around our massive Convention Center.

Sunday Schedule Announced for 2010 San Diego Comic-Con; Highlights Include Glee, Smallville, Supernatural, and It’S Always Sunny In Philadelphia

In terms of movie-related programming, the San Diego Comic-Con ends on Saturday. The schedule for Sunday, July 25th is now online and it’s “Kids’ Day”. That means there are a lot of Nickelodeon and Disney Channel panels as well as craft panels and screenings that are perfect for parents.

For geeks though, Sunday is all about picking up that last-minute collectible, walking the floor, or seeing some TV panels. Hall H isn’t even open on Sunday, so instead all eyes turn to the second biggest room, Ballroom 20, where the biggest panel of the day by far is the one for Glee. But that’s not all. Smallville, Supernatural and Castle all will have presentations on Sunday too. And panels featuring Sons of Anarchy and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia are pretty much guaranteed to slap Kids’ Day in the face.
