Season 6 Premiere Kicks Off In a BIG way!!
In case the build up and anticipation of the world premiere of HBO’s True Blood on June 16 in and of itself was not enough, HBO has yet another surprise in store for its millions of fans! A major social media event has been scheduled to coincide with the Season 6 Premiere of True Blood! This first ever social media event will be broadcast live from the set of Fangtasia.
The Season 6 media event is said to be a:
“two-part social media event beginn[ing] on June 16, 9:00 a.m. ET, when HBO will reveal exclusive #secretsfromtheset via the True Blood profiles on Facebook (Facebook.com/Trueblood), Twitter (Twitter.com/TruebloodHBO), Instagram (Instagram.com/TruebloodHBO) and Vine. This all leads up to a fan-fueled interactive pre-show, #TrueBlood: Live from Set, airing on HBO at 8:45 p.m. ET/PT hosted by comedienne and Parks and Recreation actress Retta”.
