The modern adaptation of the beloved fairy tale centers on Catherine Chandler (Kreuk), a tough-minded NYPD homicide detective who is haunted by witnessing her mother's murder nine years ago--as well as the murderer's quick demise at what she perceived to be the hands of a beast. After years of searching, Catherine finally discovers the beast is Vincent Keller (Ryan), a survivor of a military experiment that went disastrously wrong and left him to lead a secret life in hiding.

Between 5 p.m.-6:45 p.m., Kreuk, Ryan and executive producers will participate in an autograph signing at the CW/CBS booth on the convention floor.

Together, Sherlock's unique detective skills and Watson's medical expertise form a formidable force capable of solving the NYPD's most impossible cases.
