DC Comics is making yet another a move into the comics news business by launching its own daily news show to air on the DC Universe streaming service and other platforms like YouTube. The show will feature “entertaining news and insights, exclusive guest appearances, interviews and panel discussions with some of the most knowledgeable voices in the DC universe,” according to a press release. The kickoff show will be hosted by Kevin Smith on August 29th, and Smith will offer fans an “in-depth look at the DC UNIVERSE digital subscription service.”
DC Daily will offer DC UNIVERSE members an added depth of news content that ties back to the original series, comics and community on the new service launching this Fall. DC Daily will be hosted by a variety of faces familiar to DC fans, with special guests and other co-hosts joining the daily cast. Currently the DC Daily format is scheduled to include ‘Headlines,’ a run-down of daily news briefs; ‘Reports,’ a single-topic segment that may feature an in-depth interview or deep dive into an upcoming book, film or series; and ‘Talk,’ a panel discussion including in-depth analysis about today’s hottest topics and news, which will be exclusively available only to DC UNIVERSE members via the subscription service.
DC Daily will be filmed and streamed daily from an all-new, dedicated 2,100 square foot set built especially for the show at a Warner Bros. Digital Networks studio location in Burbank, California. The custom-designed sets include original large-format panel artwork of iconic DC characters, as well as plenty of conversational seating, demonstration stations and stand-up viewing areas for hosts, guest commentators and special guests.
