More TV in the ATX

ATX Television Festival back bigger and badder for 2013

The first ever ATX Television Festival was a small gem with some big name stars. Now cofounders Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson have confirmed that it will be back in 2013, and are already Kickstarting their way to funding it.

Here's the skinny: The second festival will run June 6-9, 2013. Yup, that means the three-day event goes up to four days next year, with an opening night screening and party on Thursday, heading into three days of extra screenings and panels. Passes will range from $90 to $225. No guests have been confirmed yet, but considering this year's event managed to skim the cream from cable and network (like the cast of Friday Night Lights, Scrubs and Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence, and some TV fantasy heavy hitters) then that's a promising omen.

Find out more at their Kickstarter page, or just watch this video.
