ATX Adds More Programming to 2018 Lineup
Netflix’s American Vandal, EPIX’s Get Shorty and TNT’s Claws are joining ATX Television Festival’s season seven lineup this June.
According to a press release, a panel titled “American Vandal: Orchestrating the Perfect (Un)True Crime” will feature the creative team behind the Netflix original, American Vandal, — including co-creator and executive producer Dan Perrault, co-creator-executive producer-director Tony Yacenda, showrunner-executive producer Dan Lagana, and Funny or Die’s vice president of long-form content, who is also an executive producer on the show, Joe Farrell. The discussion will focus on an in-depth look at the series from pitch to development to surprise hit and also explore the true crime that influenced the series’ take on the genre.
EPIX will host a screening of the season two premiere of their series Get Shorty, followed by a panel with creator Davey Holmes, producing director Adam Arkin, and cast members Chris O’Dowd and Lidia Porto.
ATX will also feature a sneak peek at the season two premiere of TNT’s dramedy, Claws, followed by a discussion with series creator/EP Eliot Laurence, showrunner/EP Janine Sherman Barrois, and stars Niecy Nash, Carrie Preston, Judy Reyes, and Dean Norris.

Yay! I’m so excited. And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Claws. That addition thrills me. Now I need to watch American Vandal after hearing so much about it.
