‘DC Daily’ creates fan ‘lair’ for new streaming show

DC Comics is launching a daily news show for its DC Universe subscription service that will originate in a studio designed to be a fan’s paradise.

Titled “DC Daily,” the show will offer fans entertaining news and insights, exclusive guest appearances, interviews and panel discussions.

The first edition of the show airs Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. pacific time (7:30 p.m. eastern time).

DC Daily will be filmed and streamed daily from an all-new, dedicated 2,100 square foot set built especially for the show at a Warner Bros. Digital Networks studio location in Burbank, California.

The custom-designed sets include original large format panel artwork of iconic DC characters, as well as plenty of conversational seating, demonstration stations and standup viewing areas for hosts, guest commentators and special guests.

In a rendering provided to NewscastStudio, one of the sets is stocked with numerous references to the iconic characters in the DC universe — including large memorabilia and touches such as DC-branded pinball machine and drafting table.

Exposed faux brick walls with an industrial style door and window are also featured.

The “DC Daily” format will include “Headlines,” a rundown 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 exclusively available only to DC Universe members via the subscription service.

Select content from the show will also be available for free by non-subscribers.
