After we learn more about Deception, we’ll switch gears back to A Wrinkle In Time as we’ll get to speak with the film’s Costume Designer Paco Delgado.
If you’ve seen any of the trailers for the film, you know the costumes are out of this world. I can only hope that he’ll have a couple samples for us to see and maybe touch! Monday is also the premiere night so we’ll be walking the red carpet with the cast and viewing the film at El Capitan Theater on Hollywood Blvd. I can’t wait to show you my dress and gaudy Texas jewels.

Tuesday is the final day of this amazing adventure, but we won’t be leaving without another fantastic day of new ABC shows!

Last but certainly not least, the first TV doctor I ever loved, Zach Braff brings us Alex, Inc. A new comedy coming to ABC on March 28th at 8:30|7:30c. We’ll get to speak the stars, Braff (“Alex Schuman”) and Tiya Sircar (“Rooni Shuman”) and Executive Producer Matt Tarses about the show. To say we are shutting it down with an amazing last interview is an understatement. I recently listened to a podcast back from 2012 with Nerdist speaking with Zach Braff on this actual show. How cool right?! See Hollywood takes time and patience. Glad we get to speak with this crew!

It’s going to be a PHENOMENAL event and I am still pinching myself. I’d be honored if you follow along and comment on the pics and tweets I’ll be sharing. Be warned, it’s going to be an epic weekend and Monday and Tuesday of oversharing, Instagram stories and snaps. Now that I think about it, I need to find my ultimate battery pack and get all the pics off my phone. I need as much space as possible.
Now I’m off to pack! Wish me luck!
