Machinima’s ETC After Party: The Cult of CULT to Debut Tonight,
Tuesday, February 19, on YouTube.com/MachinimaETC
BURBANK, Calif. (February 19, 2013) — There’s no stopping the power of this CULT! In the new Warner Bros. Television/The CW series (airing Tuesdays 9/8c), obsessed fans pore over every detail of a mysterious TV thriller online, following the exploits of cult leader Billy Grimm and his rabid followers. And now, in the real world, real-life CULT fans will also have the chance to examine the show’s many shadowy twists and turns with Machinima’s ETC After Party: The Cult of CULT, a live interactive recap show on Machinima’s ETC (Entertainment, Technology, Culture) channel directly following every Tuesday night telecast.

-“Fan Domain”: Machinima’s ETC After Party: The Cult of CULT will feature a live Twitter feed running throughout the show and real-time answers from the show’s hosts and guests to questions from the online audience.

-Livestreamed from Machinima’s studio, Machinima’s ETC After Party: The Cult of CULT will be hosted by Sara Fletcher (Secret Girlfriend) and Brendan Bradley (The Dark Knight Retires).
In this visceral thriller created by Rockne S. O’Bannon, Jeff Sefton, a bright, driven and intuitive reporter, teams up with Skye Yarrow, an inquisitive television researcher, to investigate a series of disturbing disappearances all tied to a wildly popular new television show called Cult. With everyone a suspect and no one to trust but each other, Jeff and Skye follow an obscure trail of tantalizing clues deeper into the cult of Cult in an effort to find Jeff’s missing brother, a rabid fan of the show who unlocked the secret at the heart of the series … and seemingly paid the price. Moving from the real world into the world of the labyrinthine series and its two characters — LAPD detective Kelly Collins and charismatic cult leader Billy Grimm — events inside the show begin to bleed into the outside world and vice versa as the young couple’s certainty of what’s real and what’s illusion crumbles into dust. Hypnotic, shocking and disturbingly unpredictable, the multilayered worlds of CULT watches fans watching Cult … without realizing that Cult is watching them.
Starring Matt Davis (The Vampire Diaries), Jessica Lucas (Cloverfield, The Evil Dead), Alona Tal (Supernatural, The Killing) and Robert Knepper (Prison Break), CULT is from Fake Empire and Rockne S. O’Bannon Television in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios, with executive producers Rockne S.
