ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and Netflix to Kick-Off ATX Television Festival


ATX Television Festival is thrilled to announce Opening Night Programming courtesy of Netflix. To open Season Two of ATX Television Festival, Netflix will feature the return of the beloved series Arrested Development, followed by a Q&A with members of the cast. Netflix is the premiere destination for original programming, making the platform a perfect partner for ATX Television Festival, which takes place June 6-9 in Austin, TX.

In addition to hosting the opening night festivities, Netflix has joined ATX Television Festival as a premiere sponsor of the festival.

“As a growing television festival, entering into our sophomore year, we couldn’t imagine a more perfect opening night (and festival) partner than Netflix,” said ATX Television Festival Co-Founders Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson. “Our goal is to have an event that showcases ALL of television — from past favorites, cancelled-too-soon series, current hits, and ground breaking new programming, and Netflix has set the standard for providing that and beyond.”

ATX Television Festival will showcase Netflix throughout the festival in various ways, and encourages festival attendees to stream Netflix to discover and watch series featured at the festival both before coming to the festival, and after discovering hit series like The Riches, Scandal, Hart of Dixie, Friday Night Lights, Hell on Wheels, Vampire Diaries and of course Arrested Development.
