Syfy and New York-based creative content agency Black Spot teamed up to create live, on the ground coverage for Syfy’s fan-focused news service, Syfy Wire, from New York Comic Con over the weekend.

Syfy Creative Director Eve Penzer and Black Spot Creative Director Ian Collier brought together a team of writers to brainstorm and write dozens of concepts, providing Syfy Wire with a template for Con coverage for years to come.

Marking the first time Syfy has worked with an outside creative agency ahead of a big genre event, the team packed all four days of New York Comic Con with live coverage from the convention floor. Black Spot also provided Syfy with creative, production and post-production services for Syfy Wire and the network’s live stage.

“It was truly a collaborative enterprise between all the creatives at both Syfy and Black Spot to give the best fan experience for Syfy Wire at New York Comic Con,” said Penzer in a statement.
