‘Queer As Folk’ Cast to Reunite at ATX Television Festival

The ATX Television Festival will celebrate the 10th anniversary of “Queer As Folk” with a reunion panel at the gathering set for June 4-7 in Austin, Texas.

The panel will include exec producers Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman and cast members Gale Harold, Peter Paige, Robert Gant, Scott Lowell, Michelle Clunie and Thea Gill. “Queer as Folk,” a remake of a British series of the same name, ran on Showtime from 2000-2005.

“We strive for diverse and revolutionary programming, and this groundbreaking series changed the game for cable television in 2000, marking a high point not only for the LGBT community, but for socially important storytelling,” said fest co-exec directors Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson.

The “Queer As Folk” panel joins the previously announced “Dawson’s Creek” writers room reunion and “Gilmore Girls” reunion, which will be held at Austin’s Paramount Theater June 5-7.

The festival also announced the addition of showrunner Jenny Bicks (“The Big C,” “Sex and The City”), as a judge for the Pitch Competition, in which 10 finalists field ideas for original scripted series.
