ABC Television celebrated the series premiere of “Big Sky” on with a star-studded virtual premiere, including series stars Ryan Phillippe, Katheryn Winnick, Kylie Bunbury, Brian Geraghty, Dedee Pfeiffer, and more! Additional celebrity guests included Lena Waithe, Mayim Bialik, Lance Bass, Brooke Shields, Yvette Nicole Brown, Adina Porter, Sharon Osbourne, Kate Nash, Rachel Roy, and Danica McKellar!
“Big Sky” Virtual Premiere Event
The virtual premiere event transported guests into the world of Big Sky, Montana, kicking off with a LIVE, interactive pre-party experience in the “All In Bar,” serving a signature drink, the “Big Sky Mule” made with Huckleberry vodka. To allow attendees to experience first-hand what it’s like to be part of the town, event producers built out a full, physical recreation of the bar seen in the first episode, filled with easter eggs from the show and populated it with two performers set in the “Big Sky” world.
Guests dined on special “Country Crate Meals” delivered to their doorsteps in a rustic metal crate filled with country dinner staples like tri tip sandwiches, chili, cornbread with honey butter, and huckleberry fry pie, as well as local Montana treats, including a Montana state baseball cap and a Yellowstone candle — plus a pine-needle tree to plant at home!
The event continued with the world premiere screening of the first episode of “Big Sky” and a live Q&A with stars Ryan Phillippe, Katheryn Winnick, and Kylie Bunbury.
This new thriller from visionary storyteller David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies”) is set in the heart of Montana, where dark secrets lie beneath the beautiful vistas. While on a road trip to visit her boyfriend in Montana, Danielle Sullivan and her sister Grace are kidnapped by a truck driver on a remote part of the highway, setting off a chain of events that leads private detectives Cody Hoyt and Cassie Dewell to team up with Cody’s estranged wife and ex-cop, Jenny Hoyt, to search for the sisters. But when the investigators discover these are not the only girls who have disappeared in the area, it’s clear they’ve stumbled onto something much bigger than them all.
The highly anticipated series debuts Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 10/9c on ABC.
