Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger

Our schedule in Los Angeles also includes a stop at Disney Channel where we’ll learn more about Marvel’s CLOAK & DAGGER. This coming-of-age television series airs on Freeform, and is based on the Marvel comic of the same name. Tandy Bowen (Olivia Holt) and Tyrone Johnson (Aubrey Joseph) are two teenagers from very different backgrounds, who find themselves burdened by and awakened to newly discovered superpowers which are mysteriously linked to one another.  The series airs Thursdays at 8 pm, and currently has the best-ever digital debut in Freeform’s history.


Fancy Nancy

While at Disney Channel, we’ll also learn about the newest Disney Junior show FANCY NANCY based on the New York Times bestselling book series by Jane O’Connor and Robin Preiss Glasser. This animated family comedy centers around six-year-old Nancy, a high-spirited young girl whose zest and enthusiasm for all that is exquisite – including language, nature, art and color – transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.

I’m so excited for the #AntManAndTheWaspEvent, and can’t wait to learn more about this latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
