MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Television’s presentation at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show will include performances by multiple Grammy and Emmy Award-winner Tony Bennett and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Jerry Seinfeld.

Also appearing at the event will be other Sony Pictures Television stars including Power of Ten host Drew Carey, Wheel of Fortune’s Vanna White and Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, who will serve as master of ceremonies for the company’s presentation in the Sony booth at the opening of the show on 7 January 2008.

Sony Pictures Television president Steve Mosko commented, “We are very excited about our presentation at CES and thrilled to have Jerry, Tony and all of our talented Sony friends be part of it. Everyone will have a great time as we present our vast range of content and show how it captivates viewers across the many available platforms.”

In June, SPT became the first major Hollywood studio to announce that it would showcase its content at the CES convention in 2008. As a producer and distributor of programming in every genre, and with one of the biggest libraries of films and television shows in the world, SPT delivers content across all platforms and devices, providing high quality entertainment.

“The marriage of great content with cutting edge devices is what makes entertainment come alive. From creation to consumption, Sony has a uniquely comprehensive understanding of the entertainment experience,” added Mosko.
