The True Blood panel begins in Ballroom 20! Executive Producer Alan Ball takes the stage.
4:38 p.m. Ball introduces a trailer of “sneak peeks of things to come.” What’s in it? Sookie’s inner-faerie comes out. Tara is stripping in tight black leather.

4:39 p.m. Panel is introduced.

4:42 p.m. Moderator (and EW staffer) Tim Stack asks if the cast has a beef with Vampire Diaries, which did its panel earlier in the day in Ballroom 20. Moyer: “We don’t talk about them.” READ FULL STORY
