TLC'S CHILLI TO MODERATE SIREN PANEL WITH CAST AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS
Freeform announced today that it will be bringing the cast and executive producers of the critically acclaimed, mermaid drama "Siren" to San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 19, to breakdown behind-the-scenes secrets and discuss the upcoming season, which begins production in Vancouver in July. Freeform has tapped the ultimate "Siren" superfan and four-time GRAMMY(R) Award winner to moderate: iconic singer Chilli, best known as 1/3 of TLC, the best-selling American girl group of all time.
Among those coming to San Diego Comic-Con include stars Eline Powell ('Ryn'), Alex Roe ('Ben'), Fola Evans-Akingbola ('Maddie'), Ian Verdun ('Xander'), Rena Owen ('Helen') and executive producers Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald.
PANEL TIME: 11:00 - 11:50 a.m. PDT

The number one new cable drama among women 18-34, "Siren," Freeform's smash hit drama, will return to Vancouver to begin production on season two, set to debut in 2019.
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.
