ATX TV Festival to Host Bunheads Reunion, Dawson's Reading and More

Gilmore Girls won’t be the only Amy Sherman Palladino-created series featured at the ATX Television Festival, taking place June 4-7 in Austin, TX.

The event will host a “cancelled too soon” screening of the ABC Family dramedy Bunheads, with Palladino and cast members Kelly Bishop, Sutton Foster and Stacey Oristano in attendance.

Additional programming announcements, which can be found below, include a Dawson’s Creek script reading and sessions for Suits, Hannibal and more.

The fest has also announced that TV icon James L. Brooks (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Taxi, The Simpsons) will receive the Achievement in Television Excellence Award. Brooks will participate in a career-spanning conversation with Phil Rosenthal (Everybody Loves Raymond) as well as a Simpsons panel with producers/writers Al Jean, Matt Selman and David Silverman.

Other events on tap for the weekend:

* Opening night screening of USA Network’s upcoming drama Complications, with creator Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and the cast.

    I’m excited to see all of these! Will TVLine be heading down to Austin to cover the festival and perhaps do some fan meet n greets? :-)

    Who is Stacey Oristano?

    I bought my ticket tonight! I only live 4 hours from Austin (and actually lived there for 7 years) and I’m really excited to go. Austin is easily the best city in Texas and one of my favorite cities in the world. I’ve been to the Austin film festival too, which was a blast. Lots of TV people there too – including MilMar from Castle. I actually met Marlowe at that panel. I should have given him a wedgie for 6×23 – too bad it was a year and a half before it happened!

    The gang from TV Line should totally cover it! Meeting Matt and Michael would be like seeing Elvis.

    Bunheads – the reunion nobody asked for!

      Considering that it was the only decent TV-Series on TV when it was on the air i’d say that yes, a lot of people asked for it.
