Spawn creator Todd McFarlane gets the spotlight in Syfy Wire's first original documentary Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won't, which will make its world premiere on Saturday, July 25th from 11PM-midnight ET/PT as part of Syfy Fan Fest.
It will also be available on Syfy's YouTube page, Syfy.com, and On Demand. Check out the trailer below.
"Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won't spotlights the life and career of industry rebel Todd McFarlane, CEO of McFarlane Toys, President of Image Comics and Legendary Artist (Spawn, Venom). From record-breaking artist to adult collectible tycoon, the documentary provides an exclusive in-depth view behind the creative mastermind of Spawn and some of Marvel Comic's most well-known artwork -- and illustrates McFarlane's struggles to navigate and upend the status quo in the comic and toy industries."
Todd McFarlane: Like Hell I Won't is produced by Syfy Wire through the network's partnership with online content creation studio Tongal, where they discovered the film's director, David Oster.
In conjunction with the documentary premiere, Syfy has partnered with GoFundMe to host a charitable sweepstakes from July 20th to August 17th, where fans can win limited edition merchandise exclusively autographed by McFarlane.
Donation proceeds will benefit the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC). BINC is an organization that aids bookstores, comic book stores and their employees who have a demonstrated financial need arising from severe hardship and/or emergency circumstances.
The documentary and McFarlane will also be the center of a special panel at Comic-Con@Home -- Syfy Presents: The Untold Tales of Todd McFarlane. Held this Thursday, July 23rd at 5PM ET / 2PM PT on Comic-Con's YouTube channel, the panel will be also available across Syfy's platforms later that evening for On Demand viewing. Comic industry greats, Marc Silvestri and J. Scott Campbell, will join in on the excitement while having some fun roasting the man who "raised hell" to get where he is today.
