From behind-the-scenes stories to an exclusive look at some of SPACE's upcoming programming, the channel delivers two panels of its own this weekend. INNERSPACE hosts are up first on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. ET in Room 714 as they highlight another great year of INNERSPACE, share some of their favourite stories, and answer fan questions. The first 80 people to attend the panel will also become the envy of their friends as they'll receive a wristband for an exclusive screening later that day of the Season 7 premiere of SPACE's most-watched series, DOCTOR WHO.

Then, on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 11 a.m. ET in Room 715, Teddy Wilson hosts "The SPACE Insider: An In-Depth Look at SPACE Programming" panel, featuring the creators and executive producers from some of SPACE's new original series including BITTEN, PRIMEVAL: NEW WORLD, ORPHAN BLACK, and PANIC BUTTON.

INNERSPACE has unparalleled access throughout Fan Expo so fans who aren't able to attend in person can check out INNERSPACE starting tonight and all of next week at 6 p.m. ET on SPACE, for Fan Expo updates and recaps.
