wreaking havoc upon the quaint village. Using their resources, marine biologists Ben (Alex Roe) and
Maddie (Fola Evans-Akingbola) must work together to find out who and what drove this mermaid out
of her home, and are there more like her out there?

The panel will include the world premiere screening of the first episode and a Q&A.
