The legendary career of Todd MacFarlane will be the focus of the first original documentary from SYFY Wire.
Making its world premiere on Saturday, July 25 from 11 PM- Midnight as part of SYFY’s Fan Fest, Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won’t will spotlight McFarlane’s career as a record-breaking artist to his adult collectible empire. The documentary will provide viewers with an in-depth view behind the creative mastermind of Spawn and some of Marvel Comic’s most well-known artwork — and illustrate McFarlane’s struggles to navigate and upend the status quo in the comic and toy industries. The documentary will be made available on SYFY’s YouTube page, SYFY.com, set-top-box on demand and NBCU’s OneApp.
Like Hell I Won’t and McFarlane will also be the center of a special panel at Comic-Con@Home — SYFY Presents: The Untold Tales of Todd McFarlane. The panel will also feature comic industry greats, Marc Silvestri and J. Scott Campbell. The panel will be held on Thursday, July 23 at 5PM ET / 2PM PT on Comic-Con’s YouTube channel. The panel will also be available across SYFY’s platforms later that evening for on-demand viewing.
In conjunction with the documentary premiere, SYFY has partnered with GoFundMe to host a charitable sweepstakes from July 20 to August 17, where fans can win limited edition merchandise exclusively autographed by McFarlane.
