Apple TV+ is coming to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time, with a huge spotlight on its genre series, including To see, Severance, For All Mankind, Mythic Quest, Invasion and Foundation.

Apple TV+’s original series panels at San Diego Comic-Con International include:

Inside severance pay featuring EP and director Ben Stiller, creator and EP Dan Erickson and cast members Adam Scott, Britt Lower, Tramell Tillman, Dichen Lachman and Jen Tullock who will share “innie” secrets from season one.

The Endeavor Content series follows Mark Scout (Scott), who leads a team at Lumon Industries, whose employees have undergone a layoff procedure, surgically dividing their memories between their work and private lives. This daring experiment in ‘work-life balance’ is called into question as Mark finds himself at the center of an unraveling mystery that will force him to confront the true nature of his work and of himself.

There will also be a severance pay installation at the Hard Rock Hotel where participants can be “cut off” while immersing themselves in the world of Lumon Industries. The experience will take new Lumon employees through their first day on the severed floor, where all their senses will be required if they hope to be reunited with their ‘outtie’.
