DC Daily pledges to offer DC Universe subscribers an added depth of news content that ties back to the original series, comics and community on the service.
The show will be hosted by a variety of faces familiar to DC fans, with special guests and other co-hosts joining as well. Currently, theformat 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 available only to DC Universe subscribers.
DC Daily will be filmed and streamed daily from a 2,100 square foot set built especially for the show at a Warner Bros. Digital Networks studio location in Burbank, Calif. 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.
