Reelz is taking its new original show XIII to San Diego Comic-Con. We will have teams roaming the streets of San Diego to promote XIII, handing out collectible trading cards featuring stars Stuart Townsend, Aisha Tyler, and Virginie Ledoyen. Fans and Comic-Con attendees are challenged to collect all three but like the character XIII, these cards will prove to be elusive. It's our challenge to you to see if you can collect all three.
If you haven't been watching XIII Fridays on Reelz, here's the full synopsis:

XIII was trained by the government to be a covert CIA operative acquiring sophisticated combat and infiltration skills. He was sent on secret missions so dark that no one in Washington knew their actual purpose. When the mission went bad XIII was betrayed by the Government. As part of an elaborate cover-up they changed his face, erased his memory and locked him away deep inside an Eastern European prison.
But XIII escaped, and now he's searching for answers…uncovering his shadowy past and the international conspiracy that threatens his present. Powerful figures threaten and manipulate him as he gets closer to the mysterious center of a deadly puzzle…where the key to all the intrigue is XIII.
From Talk Soup to Friends to the Reelz original series XIII, Aisha Tyler has almost done it all. In a new clip promoting her new action series, the multi-talented actress talks about why XIII is her new lucky number.
It's been nice for me because I've been able to play a lot of really smart characters in my television work. I've been really fortunate. Playing interesting, really smart women, especially women in law enforcement has been something I've been able to do and I love those characters.
In XIII Tyler plays Agent Jones, a top Secret Service agent. Her relationship with XIII, played by Stuart Townsend, is complicated; once they were partners and lovers, but that was before XIII lost his memory. Here is the full synopsis of XIII:
XIII is the story of a man’s quest to uncover the truth about his identity. Named for the Roman numeral tattooed on his neck, XIII) is a former secret operative who has been stripped of his memory. He does not know who he is, what he is trained to be or whom he serves. Hunted by a dark anti-government organization, XIII searches for clues that will uncover the secret that makes him so valuable—and so potentially dangerous. Jones is a government agent and XIII’s most loyal ally. She is also under presidential orders to discover what, if anything, XIII knows.
The new thriller premieres tonight, right after the season finale of True Justice, at 9 PM ET and 9 PM PT. watch Tyler talk about her character >> Posted 06.29.12 by Chris
