Secaucus, N.J. -
unveiled Tuesday the Living In HD (LIHD) Celebrity Hookup -- a television-style online program presenting celebrities demonstrating how they use their favorite consumer electronics products in their lives.
The first "webisode" of LIHD Celebrity Hookup will premier at 8:00 p.m. ET Nov. 18 on LivingInHD.com featuring actor Kevin Connolly, who plays Eric on HBO's "Entourage" TV series.
LIHD Celebrity Hookup is hosted by lifestyle technology expert, Janna Robinson, who discovers from each featured celebrity their current consumer electronics needs and then "hooks up" their home with the most appropriate devices.
Following select shows, the featured celebrity will conduct a live web chat on LivingInHD.com to discuss the show.
New webisodes are scheduled once a month and are expected to include a range of popular stars from TV, film, entertainment and sports.
Details on future webisodes and celebrities will be announced on LivingInHD.com at a later date, Panasonic said.
First launched in August 2007, the Living In HD program was created to help people get the answers they need about the emerging HD, and now 3D, products coming to market by communicating with real people who are actually using the technology in their everyday lives.
"We are very excited about the debut of LIHD Celebrity Hookup and think our LivingInHD.com members and visitors to the site will really enjoy this new facet of the LIHD community," said Tom Murano, Panasonic's brand management director. "The goal here is to show consumers that everyone, celebrities included, are enjoying the benefits of all of the amazing, cutting-edge technology that is out there from FullHD 3D Home Theater and connected TVs with Skype video calling, to amazing digital cameras and HD camcorders that really open up your creativity, keep you connected with loved ones on a whole new level, and deliver entertainment into your home unlike anything ever seen before."
