'The West Wing' reunion coming to ATX Festival
The West Wing is going to take up residency at the ATX Television Festival this summer.
The producers and cast of NBC’s former Emmy-winning drama series will reunite for a panel at the fan conference that marks the 10-year reunion of the show’s finale. The panel will feature creator Aaron Sorkin and producer-director Thomas Schlamme, along with cast members Bradley Whitford, Dule Hill, Joshua Malina, Richard Schiff, and Janel Moloney (with potentially more to come).
Also among the new (and new-ish) announcements at the festival:
— USA’s new drama Queen of the South, starring Alice Braga as a woman who takes over her murdered boyfriend’s drug trade, will kick things off opening night with a premiere screening and panel.
— EW will present an Ugly Betty 10-year reunion event on closing night (more details on that here). Star America Ferrera will also have a panel for her current NBC comedy Superstore.
— Actor Denis Leary take place in a reunion panel for FX’s Rescue Me and for a panel promoting his current series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll.
The ATX Television Festival is in its fifth year and runs from June 9–12 in Austin.
