Objective

Promoted as the ultimate pre-game event for Power fans, Starz’ “Countdown to #PowerGhost Pre-show Event” went live at 11 PM EST on Twitter. The show was an an hour- long Power celebration that culminated would get fans excited to watch the premiere on the STARZ App at midnight. In a nod to Starz’ #PowerNeverEnds social messaging, the event was hosted by Power alum Joseph Sikora, and featured the new Ghost cast, including heavy hitters Mary J. Blige and Method Man. The Pre-show gave fans a chance to celebrate all the things they love about Power as they watched the cast answer fun trivia questions and share BTS tidbits, while also teasing what fans could expect from the spinoff. The event was further amplified by cast live-tweeting the preshow with the fans, and answering fan questions during the pre-show. At the end, the preshow featured a countdown to the episode drop on the App, directing fan to go watch - further encouraging tune-in to the main event, and kickstarting an amazing premiere night on Twitter.
