‘Empire’ Panel Added to 2015 ATX Television Festival

The ATX Television Festival is adding several events including “Empire” and FX comedy screenings to its already long list of panels hitting Austin, Texas, on June 4.

The “Empire” panel will feature exec producers Danny Strong and Ilene Chaiken, along with co-exec producer Wendy Calhoun, for a discussion about the show’s mega-growth and popularity.

FX will also screen several of its comedies, including a premiere of its new series “Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll,” with exec producer and star Denis Leary, and fellow cast members Elizabeth Gillies, Bobby Kelly, Elaine Hendrix and John Ales.

“Married” stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer and exec producer Andrew Gurland will premiere a new episode of their FX show, and last season’s finale of “You’re the Worst” will screen with Aya Cash, Chris Geere and creator Stephen Falk in attendance. The cabler will also screen a new episode of “The Comedians,” including a discussion with co-creators and exec producers Ben Wexler and Matt Nix.

Other new additions to the fest include events with the cast and showrunners of TV Land’s comedy “Teachers,” the creators of Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty” and El Rey Network’s second season premiere of “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.”

These shows join previously announced panels including “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” a “Dawson’s Creek” writers room reunion, along with a first-ever “Dawson’s Creek” pilot script reading presented by creator Kevin Williamson, “Gilmore Girls,” “Hannibal” and “Justified.”
