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.

We are so happy that we stayed in Chicago for a few extra days and visited the University of Illinois at Chicago and Chicago University! Not only did we experience the last days of summer weather, but we also had an amazing time meeting with you between classes to talk about the SHOWTIME® Original Series Homeland and DEXTER®.
Thanks for hanging out with us and even coming back for seconds with more friends in tow! We had a blast taking pictures of you in front of the Homeland and DEXTER® truck art for your Facebook and Twitter pages; so much fun in fact that we were hardly able to leave as you guys kept showing up looking for our great giveaways and free SHO-Cones.
We’d love to see some of those fantastic pictures you took with the truck and our giveway items and games. Please upload them to Twitter or Instagram and hashtag #showtimetour.
