AMAZON PRIME VIDEO ANNOUNCES IMMERSIVE TOM CLANCY’S JACK RYAN FAN EXPERIENCE AND
PANELS AT THE 2018 SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL

Panels to feature creators of Amazon’s most popular and anticipated series including
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, The Tick, Good Omens, Homecoming, Lore, The Expanse and The
Man in the High Castle

SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 27, 2018 – Amazon Prime Video today announced its lineup
for the 2018 San Diego Comic-Con International. It includes two panels featuring the
creators and cast from some of Amazon’s most popular and anticipated series
including Carlton Cuse, showrunner and Executive Producer of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan;
Ben Edlund creator of The Tick; Sam Esmail director of Homecoming; Neil Gaiman
creator, writer, and showrunner of Good Omens; Gale Anne Hurd Executive Producer of
Lore; and Naren Shankar showrunner of The Expanse. In addition, a second panel with
The Man in the High Castle Executive Producers Isa Dick Hackett and Daniel Percival
will be held and cast from the series will be in attendance including Alexa Davalos,
Rufus Sewell, Jason O’Mara, and Stephen Root.

Amazon will host an unforgettable experience for Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan to the west
of the convention center – starting at the corner of MLK & 1st and extending to the
back adjacent parking lot. The entire area will be converted into a vast Jack Ryan
immersive experience that plucks people from the streets of San Diego and transports
them into the heart of the Middle East.

“We’re thrilled to bring such a diverse group of creators to SDCC and give fans an
exclusive sneak peek at what’s to come for these highly-anticipated shows,” said
Mike Benson, Head of Marketing, Amazon Studios. “Our activation for Tom Clancy’s
Jack Ryan is our most ambitious to date and will be one of the must-see events of
Comic-Con.”

Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Fan Experience

At the Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan fan experience, Comic-Con attendees will step into the
world of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and be thrust into a dangerous field assignment that
turns them into unexpected heroes. Visitors will complete the Jack Ryan Training
Field by infiltrating, fighting and evading the enemy to gain full field clearance.
They will then use that training to help Jack Ryan himself in Dark Ops, a
groundbreaking escape room that recreates the pilot episode of Tom Clancy’s Jack
Ryan. Attendees can also explore the Middle Eastern bazaar which has assignments to
be completed at every turn, watch a live leaderboard and pick up some iconic Jack
Ryan swag.

The Jack Ryan Training Field is a hyper-reality virtual reality spy experience where
participants can prove they have what it takes to be a hero. Heroes in training will
go through a series of thrilling true-to-life experiences including rappelling from
a helicopter, traversing between dangerous high rise buildings, and zip-lining to
ground level. Created with MediaMonks, the Jack Ryan Training Field stands over 30
feet tall and uses the latest Optitrack 4D and Oculus Rift technology to make
visitors physically feel as if they were thrust into the action.

Dark Ops is a first of its kind escape room, created by AKQA and Unit 9, which lets
participants live the first episode of Jack Ryan. Participants will be tasked with
offering remote assistance to Jack Ryan in Dark Ops, where teams of rookie analysts
will have to dig deep to uncover a plot of double-crossing, top secret information
and an extremist plot set to be put in motion at any minute.

The Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan fan experience will take place Thursday, July 19 through
Sunday, July 22 at the park located at the corner of 1st street and Martin Luther
King Promenade – directly across from the San Diego Convention Center. It will be
open daily from 9 am to 7 pm Thursday through Saturday, and 9 am to 5 pm on Sunday.

San Diego Comic-Con Panels
In addition to the experience, creators and talent from some of Amazon’s biggest
