‘Gilmore Girls’ to Reunite at ATX TV Festival

Stars Hollow is coming to Austin, Texas.

As part of the annual ATX Television Festival, “Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel have been confirmed for a reunion panel.

“‘Gilmore’ was the highlight of my ridiculous life,” said Sherman-Palladino. “I can’t wait to sit with these unbelievable broads and relive a time where sleep did not exist, where stress and coffee were mama’s little helpers, and where we all dove into the deep end together to make something weird and very, very cool.”

The festival, scheduled for June 4-7, 2015, will also feature the reunion of the “Dawson’s Creek” writers’ room, which launched many TV writers’ careers. Scheduled to attend are showrunner/creator Kevin Williamson, showrunner Greg Berlanti, and producers/writers/assistants Jenny Bicks, Julie Plec, Rob Thomas, Liz Tigelaar, Paul Stupin, Rina Mimoun, Maggie Friedman, Anna Fricke, Gina Fattore and Dana Baratta.

“‘Dawson’s Creek’ and Kevin Williamson changed my life and gave me a career,” said Berlanti. “Nothing could be more exciting than to be back with so many people I respect and admire than my fellow writers from the show…and our amazing creator, Kevin.”

Kyle Killen (“Lone Star,” “Awake”), Scott Pennington (Chapter Eleven) and Keith Redmon (Anonymous Content) have been announced as preliminary judges for the third annual pitch competition, which allows aspiring writers and show creators to submit ideas for a scripted series at the festival.

Submissions are accepted December 5, 2014 through January 16, 2015 through the festival’s website.
