Trailer for Comic-Con HQ’s awesome new show MARK HAMILL’S POP CULTURE QUEST


We first told you about MARK HAMILL’S POP CULTURE QUEST back in early June, before they had shot any of it.  Now that the show is done, we’ve got a new trailer for you to check out that gives you a solid idea what to expect.  If you haven’t been keeping track of Comic-Con HQ, it’s a specialized channel of programming geared toward the fan convention crowd. One of the most exciting original shows to hit there is POP CULTURE QUEST, hosted by the one and only Mark Hamill of STAR WARS fame.  The documentary-style series will feature the collections and passionate fans and their stories about their collections, and knowing Mark and his genuine passion for collecting, we should all be in for a treat.  If you’ve never heard it, check out our 2008 podcast interview with Mark right here (we talk to him for over an hour).

Here’s a few snippets from the original press release for the show:

“I’ve been a collector all my life,” said Hamill. “This show is a natural outgrowth of that passion. Now I have an opportunity to collect other people’s collections! I can’t wait to see what’s out there and share it with the world. Collectibles are a living history of who and what we are, so we just might learn something… but there’s no doubt we’re going to have fun!”

Hamill will once again team with his friend and Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi producer, Howard Kazanjian. Kazanjian was Executive Producer on Raiders of the Lost Ark and served as VP at Lucasfilm during the dramatic expansion of the company in the 1980s. Producer Darren Moorman, whose film Same Kind of Different as Me will be released next year, and longtime collector and vintage show promoter Scott Kinney will round out the producing team as Executive Producers on the series.

Join Mark on his quest to track down the rumored rocket-firing Boba Fett, the original Time Machine, the last surviving armature model used to animate the original 1933 King Kong, the 1992 Batmobile, and so much more! Mark travels inside pop culture’s vaults to uncover why we are so fascinated with collecting and what our collections say about us.
