ATX Television Festival Red Carpet with Old Friends and New
The second annual ATX Television Festival opened with a heavy hitting partner in Netflix, as well as a star studded red carpet that brought memories of grunge and teen angst rushing back at the sight of some of my favorite talent from the nineties. Boy Meets World, My So-Called Life and Party of Five were well represented. There were a few familiar faces from shows like Arrested Development, New Girl, NTSF:SD:SUV, The Mindy Project, Raising Hope and Friday Night Lights as well!
Netflix programming opened with two Arrested Development episodes and an intimate Q&A with two of our favorite ladies from the show, Alia Shawkat (Maeby Fünke) and Mae Whitman (Her, A.K.A. Ann Veal). The two women talked about coming back to the show so many years later and how easy it was to slip right back in to their characters. Alia and Mae represented the AD team beautifully and hilariously.
