LOS ANGELES -- October 24, 2012

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)^® announced today that actress
Felicia Day, creator and star of the hit web series “The Guild,” will serve as
the Entertainment Matters Ambassador for the 2013 International CES^®.
Entering its third year, Entertainment Matters at CES is designed by and for
Hollywood’s film, television and digital communities. Owned and produced by
CEA, the 2013 International CES is the world’s largest and most important
consumer technology event that will take place January 8-11, 2013, in Las
Vegas, Nevada.

“As an entrepreneurial and innovative content creator, Felicia Day is an
extremely relevant ambassador for the 2013 CES Entertainment Matters program,”
said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, events and conferences, CEA. “Her
success on the internet, in Hollywood and in technology underscores her deep
understanding of the intersection of content and technology and makes her a
perfect ambassador. Day’s experience as an actress and content creator
exemplifies the focus and goals of our Entertainment Matters program.”

Day has appeared in numerous television shows and films, most recently guest
starring on the CW show "Supernatural," and completing a two-season arc on the
SyFy series “Eureka.” She is best known for creating and starring in the hit
web series “The Guild,” currently in its sixth season of production. “The
Guild” has been the recipient of various awards for web video excellence
including an award for “Best Comedy Web Series” at the International Academy
of Web Television (IAWTV) Awards at the 2012 International CES.

Day is also the executive producer of Geek & Sundry, a premium YouTube channel
that features a slate of seven shows, including "The Flog," which Day hosts.
Since it launched in April 2012, the channel has garnered more than 350,000
subscribers and 24 million views. In 2008, Day co-starred in Joss Whedon’s
Internet musical “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” which won an Emmy in 2009.

"I'm thrilled to be working with CES as this year's Entertainment Matters
Ambassador,” said Day. “The programming and content planned for the event this
year is a true celebration of how technology is transforming the way we
experience entertainment. CES is the perfect place to highlight this turning
point in our creative landscape, and I can't wait to be part of it."

CES experience for film, television and digital entertainment professionals.
This year, the program features a variety of events and conference sessions,

Hollywood, Content in the Cloud, Variety's Entertainment Summit: Film &
Technology and the 2013 IAWTV Awards Gala.

    explore the trend of Americans tuning into their favorite shows with a
