The Comic-Con event will include a screening, followed by a scheduled Q&A with director Stewart Hendler; John Cabrera, who created and wrote the series with Cosimo De Tommaso; Jason Taylor, who is producing with Singer; and cast members Alexis Denisof, David Clayton Rogers and Sean Gunn.

The cast also includes Hannah Simone, Samuel Vauramo and Amir Arison.

H+ is set in the future at a time when consumers are rapidly installing a chip called H+ into their nervous systems that allows them to access the Internet 24 hours a day -- by just thinking it. The series begins after a virus is released – causing a third of the world’s population to die instantly -- and follows the fight for survival and the mystery to discover who was behind the act.

“H+ The Digital Series on YouTube provides us with a strong two-way dialogue with our fans, creating a deeper and ongoing connection," said Singer in a statement.
