We packed up two giant food trucks, wrapped them in amazing Homeland and DEXTER® artwork, outfitted them with a SHO-Cone machine and all kinds of premium giveaways, and made our way across the US to some of the best college towns in the country.
From driving in to College Station following the sounds of the midnight yell to handing out ponchos to rain soaked co-eds at Michigan State; celebrating the news of Homeland’s 6 Emmy wins on the sidewalks of New York to epic corn-hole battles in the shadow of Soldier Field in Chicago – we had an amazing run!
Many thanks to every single one of you for sharing in this incredible event, the first ever SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour, with us! Getting to be a part of your creative photo opportunity poses, your super spirited face painting requests, and the overall enthusiasm for SHOWTIME® and our original series Homeland and DEXTER® was amazing.
So, whether you’re a Spartan or a Longhorn; a Fighting Irish or a UIC Flame or any other of the amazing students we got to meet and hangout with, keep watching SHOWTIME® and thank you again for this one of a kind experience.

The second destination on The SHOWTIME® Tailgate Tour and our very first game day appearance was at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. This time we took it to the streets and visited with fans one on one; distributed our giveaways (you know how much college students need laundry bags!) and painted faces!
A big thank you to all of our Virginia Tech fans – we had a blast with you. Don’t forget to tune in for new episodes of Homeland and DEXTER® on Sunday, October 7th, starting at 9 pm EST.
We’d love to see your photos from the event – upload them to Instagram or Twitter and hashtag #showtimetour.
