DC Universe Unveils 'DC Daily' News Show; Kevin Smith to Host Debut Livestream

DC Universe

DC has announced DC Daily, a new daily news show on the DC Universe service, as well as an initial livestream introduction to be hosted by director and comic book writer Kevin Smith.

Touted as a news show for “all things DC,” DC Daily is set to offer news and insights on upcoming DC projects, running the gamut from comics, TV and movies to web series and DC Universe exclusives, as well as guest appearances, interviews and panel discussions featuring “some of the most knowledgeable voices in the DC universe.” Full episodes of the program will be available on the DC Universe subscription service, while select segments will be released to additional online channels.

The inaugural livestream introduction is set for Aug. 29 at 4:30 p.m. PST. Smith (Supergirl, Green Arrow) will host, introducing fans to the format, sets and exclusive content that can be expected from DC Daily, and providing fans with “an in-depth look at the DC Universe digital subscription service.” The livestream will be available on DC’s Facebook, Twitch and YouTube channels.

DC Daily will not have a single host, but instead a rotating assortment of “faces familiar to DC fans,” with additional special guests and co-hosts joining from time to time. Currently, DC Daily will include a “Headlines” segment, featuring a run-down of daily news, as well as “Reports,” which will delve deep into a single topic -- anything from a featurette on an upcoming project to an in-depth interview with a creator. The “Talk” segment, meanwhile, will be a panel discussion and analysis of the day’s news and will only be available to DC Universe subscribers.

A brand-new, dedicated 2,100-square-foot set has been built for the show on the Warner Bros. Digital Networks studio lot. Original artwork of DC characters will decorate the stage.
