THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 10/14/2013 Sleepy Hollow awakens the fans at NYCC

First HUGE numbers are in for Sleepy Hollow.  During the premiere week  of the 2013-2014 season (September 23-29), Sleepy Hollow topped the % adults 18-49 ratings increase from DVR viewing, adding 70% to its Live+Same Day adults 18-49 ratings.  Holy crap!  Amazing!  READ ALL ABOUT IT NOW!

With numbers like that you can understand why the Sleepy Hollow panel was the must attend event at the New York Comic Con yesterday. Panels ran throughout the con, but no one had a panel or an autograph line quite like Sleepy Hollow.  Co-Creator of the show, Phillip Iscove captured the moment. Wow!  That line is insane!  Thanks for the pic Phillip! Liz P. who runs the @TomMisonFans twitter account, was in attendance for none other than Sleepy Hollow.

I asked Liz to share her experience at this year’s con. “The highlights for me were mostly about Tom (of course).  The question was asked about how to play the comedic moments that he does so well — he said that he has to repress “the flouncing tart” in him that wants to ham it up.  It got a great laugh, especially when someone added that everyone in the audience was probably now googling “flouncing tart.”

@TomMisonFans @WilmywoodNC It was a HUGE room. Person Of Interest didn’t fill it, and The Following barely did, but mostly cuz everyone was there for SH!

“Also I loved when people asked (a couple of times, I think), about “Ichabbie,” and he kept reminding them that he had a wife who was a witch, who probably wouldn’t appreciate him taking up with another woman.  They showed a rough cut of some new scenes, which were pretty amazing — lovely moments between Ichabod and Abbie, then some pretty crazy stuff happens.  The footage will be part of the November 4th episode, I think, which airs after a break for the World Series.  Not sure how I’m going to make it through that break, to be honest!!”

Yes, Liz, I think we can all relate!  Within that exclusive footage shown at NYCC was the two main women in Ichabod’s life will have to team up to try and save him from a new evil after he gets abducted. We learn that Katrina can also visit Abbie.  Katrina warns Abbie that the Headless Horseman is returning to Sleepy Hollow that night and only Ichabod can stop him.

So what was one of Liz’s favorite moments during Comin Con?  “Singing happy birthday to Katia,” she said.  “I wish we had heard a little more from Orlando, but we ran out of time.  He did get to talk a little about his really savvy use of social media – but would have loved to hear more about it and about his Capt. Irving.”

My other correspondent was Bryce Finchem.  He said more info was revealed about John Noble (Fringe).  We now know according to Alex Kurtzman & Len Wiseman, he will be playing a Sin-eater, a person/entity which will be crucial to Ichabod’s existence.

Couldn’t make it to the con?  No worries check out the panel discussion NOW!

Looking four episodes ahead, writer Jose Molina mentioned that they are working on Episode 9 and he shared a little tease about what’s to come. “If today’s writing session is any indicator, episode 1.09 is gonna be a 5-hankie event!”  Oh boy!

With all that being said, let’s focus on tonight’s episode (9pm EST, FOX) written by Melissa Blake. Here’s a sneak peek:

The Sleepy Folks shoot at Smith Creek Park today!
