On opening night, the festival will kick off with the premiere of FX’s Justified: City Primeval, an eight-part limited series based on the novel City Primeval: High Noon in Detroit. The screening will be followed by a conversation with the cast and crew. The series, which premieres this summer, “picks up 15 years after U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) left the hollers of Kentucky in FX’s Justified,” according to a statement from ATX. “Extending the Elmore Leonard universe and featuring an all new cast of characters, a chance encounter on a Florida highway leads Givens to Detroit, where he crosses paths with violent sociopath Clement Mansell, aka ‘The Oklahoma Wildman’ (Boyd Holbrook) and his formidable defense attorney (Aunjanue Ellis).”

In addition, ATX TV has also confirmed the following events:

Following the screening, Serrano, who also serves as executive producer on the series, will join cast members Ignacio Diaz-Silverio (The Good Fight) and Christina Vidal (The Terminal List, Taina) in conversation about the series, which premieres Friday, May 19.
