Freeform, Disney’s young adult television network, announced today that it will be bringing the cast and executive producers of the highly-anticipated mermaid drama, “Siren,” to WonderCon on Saturday, March 24 in Anaheim, CA to screen never-before-seen footage and discuss the upcoming series, which debuts on Thursday, March 29, with a special two-hour premiere (8:00–10:00 p.m. EDT).
Among those coming to WonderCon include series regular stars Eline Powell (‘Ryn’), Alex Roe (‘Ben’), Fola Evans-Akingbola (‘Maddie’), Ian Verdun (‘Xander’), Sibongile Mlambo (‘Donna’), Rena Owen (‘Helen’) and executive producers Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald.
In this epic tale, the coastal town of Bristol Cove, known for its legend of once being home to mermaids, is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Powell) appears and begins wreaking havoc upon the small fishing town. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Roe) and Maddie (Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this primal hunter of the deep sea to land and are there more like her out there?
“Siren” is based on a story by Eric Wald and Dean White who both serve as executive producers. Emily Whitesell (“Finding Carter”) serves as showrunner and executive producer. Brad Luff, Nate Hopper and RD Robb also serve as executive producers.
