Exclusive: ATX Festival Adds Boy Meets World Vets, a Dixie Fave and Community's Dan Harmon
TVLine has learned exclusively that a few faves from Boy Meets World and Hart of Dixie, as well as someone near and dear to the hearts of Community fans, have signed on for the second annual Austin-based soiree.
Joining the previously announced BMW panel — which already consists of creator Michael Jacobs, Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Matt Lawrence and Maitland Ward — are series vets Trina McGee (who played Angela) and Lily Nicksay (who played Morgan).
Over in Dixie land, meanwhile, Bluebell heartthrob Wilson Bethel will take the stage during the CW charmer’s ATX showing, which also includes showrunner Leila Gerstein and Scott Porter.
And while Community is not one of the series featured at the festival, the sitcom’s creator Dan Harmon will be in attendance — with Rob Schrab (The Sarah Silverman Program) — to chat up their various ventures, including the cult comedy pilot Heat Vision and Jack and the monthly LA-area short film festival Channel 101.
Taking place in Austin, Texas, from June 6-9, the weekend-long ATX Festival celebrates outstanding television of the past, present and future. Screenings and Q&As take center stage, but unlike many other festivals, ATX fosters an an intimate environment in which attendees can interact with the industry folks — of both the on- and off-screen variety — they most admire.
