A few weeks ago on my birthday I received the best birthday present, an invite to attend the Captain America Event in Los Angeles from April 9-12, 2016!!! I am so excited to share with you a little bit about what 24 other amazing bloggers and I will be doing while in LA.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (5/6/15) #CaptainAmericaEvent #TeamIronMan
The first night we arrive in Los Angeles we will be screening Captain America: Civil War. I am so excited! Part of our pre-trip “homework” was to rewatch most of the other Marvel movies- IRON MAN, THE INCREDIBLE HULK, IRON MAN 2, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, IRON MAN 3, CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON and ANT-MAN. This was the best homework assignment I have ever done! All of the bloggers were asked to pick a side- #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan and I of course chose Team Iron Man. I’ll admit I have a little crush on Robert Downey Jr. so I’m hoping he’s one of the stars we will be interviewing. We should find out any day now who the stars from Captain America: Civil War that we’ll be interviewing. Which side would you be on #TeamIronMan or #TeamCap?
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.
It looks so good:

In The Family this thriller follows the return of a politician’s young son who was presumed dead after disappearing over a decade earlier. As the mysterious young man is welcomed back into his family, suspicions emerge—is he really who he says he is?
Have you been watching The Family? I love it! It is dark and twisty and keeps you guessing. Who can you trust? Who’s guilty? And what happened to Adam? We will be joining Jenna Bans (@jennabans), the creator & executive producer of ABC’s new drama, “The Family” (Sundays at 9/8c), as well as Zach Gilford (“Danny”), Alison Pill (“Willa”), Floriana Lima (“Bridey” – @florianalima), for a family-style dinner. During dinner we will be live tweeting episode 7. We will also get a special sneak preview of episode 8 and have a Q&A session with the stars and Ms. Bans. Make sure to follow along on twitter and I’ll ask whatever questions you may have. https://www.facebook.com/TheFamilyABC
The Catch- Thursdays 10/9c on ABC #TheCatch #ABCTVEvent #TGIT
The newest addition to #TGIT on ABC is “The Catch” (from the producers of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder”). Alice Vaughan is LA’s top private investigator, but when her fiancé Benjamin Jones cons her out of millions and disappears, she goes on a private mission for payback stopping at nothing to catch her man.
While in LA we will get to go behind the scenes of The Catch which is one of my new favorite shows. It is an excitingly delicious cat and mouse game and I just love it. There are lots of twists and turns and I’m certainly hooked. I can’t wait to show you all the behind the scenes pictures and details! If you’re not watching The Catch, you should be! https://www.facebook.com/TheCatchABC
The Real O’Neals- Tuesdays 8:30/7:30c on ABC #TheRealONeals
The Real O’Neals is a fresh take on a seemingly perfect family whose lives take an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed. Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real.The Real O’Neals stars Martha Plimpton as Eileen, Jay R. Ferguson as Pat, Noah Galvin as Kenny, Mathew Shively as Jimmy, Bebe Wood as Shannon and Mary Hollis Inboden as Jodi.
I already love The Goldbergs and black-ish (you can see where I went behind the scenes of black-ish here) so it’s not surprise that my new favorite comedy is The Real O’Neals. Last night’s episode was hysterical. We will screening a few upcoming episodes and then and doing interviews with Noah Galvin, (“Kenny” – @Noahegalvin), Jay R. Ferguson (“Pat” – @jrfergjr), Matt Shively (“Jimmy” –@MattShively1), Mary Hollis Inboden (“Jodi” –@maryhollis) and Executive Producers Casey Johnson (@trocaseyjohnson), David Windsor (@dwindsor789) & Stacy Traub (@stoocytroob). Have any questions for them that you’d like me to ask?
Adventures in Babysitting (coming soon to The Disney Channel) #AdventuresInBabysitting
In “Adventures in Babysitting,” a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lola (Sofia Carson), turns into an adventure in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away.
We will also get a sneak peek at the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie “Adventures in Babysitting” inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film of the same name. Starring are Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel’s hit comedy series “Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (of the hit Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants”). My daughters were so excited when they found out I’d be interviewing and taking pictures with Sabrina Carpenter (“Jenny” -@SabrinaAnnLynn) & Sofia Carson (“Luci” -@SofiaCarson). Sabrina Carpenter is my older daughter’s favorite singer! https://www.facebook.com/DisneyChannel
THE JUNGLE BOOK (4/15/16) #JungleBook
Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire. The all-star cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o as the voice of the fiercely protective mother wolf Raksha, and Giancarlo Esposito asthe voice of wolf pack’s alpha male Akela. “The Jungle Book” seamlessly blends live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world. Thewild adventure swings into theaters in 3D on April 15, 2016.
