ATX Television Festival to open with 'Orange Is the New Black' panel -- EXCLUSIVE

June 6 is a big day for Orange Is the New Black fans.

The same day season 2 of the hit prison drama premieres on Netflix, the streaming service will hold an OITNB panel and screening to kick off programming at the 2014 ATX Television Festival in Austin.

Cast members attending the panel are TBD, but if this group’s PaleyFest chat was any indication, things should get pretty interesting in Austin.

Netflix will also host two other talks at the festival. On June 7, cultural anthropologist Grant McCracken will moderate the #SpoilerAlert panel, looking into our appetite for spoilers and how it affects the viewing experience. Panelists are TBA. READ FULL STORY

'Boy Meets World' cast to reunite in Austin: ATX Television Festival line-up announced -- EXCLUSIVE

Austin, Texas, the festival capital of the world!

This morning the ATX Television Festival (June 6-9) revealed exclusively to EW the first wave of programming for its second annual celebration of television’s history and future. Four punch-drunk days of world premieres, unaired pilots, cast reunions, beloved special guests, and trips down the memory lane of Rider Strong’s luxurious bang swoop.

True ’90s nostalgists can assess the aging process of their former small-screen friends at the first-ever cast reunion of Boy Meets World. Rider Strong, Ben Savage, Matt Lawrence, Maitland Ward, and series creator Michael Jacobs will all be in attendance. (Alas, Topanga Danielle Fishel has a wedding to attend that weekend and can’t be there in person.) “Boy Meets World ripped away my childhood and ruined me as an adult. Wait, reverse that,” said Strong, who played Shawn Hunter. “I’m so happy to be a part of ATX Television Festival. Boy Meets World was a magical time in my life and it’s incredibly satisfying to know that it still resonates with people.”

ATX will also welcome three networks who come bearing premiere programming. AMC will world premiere the pilot episode of its new cop drama Low Winter Sun with several cast members, including Lennie James (The Walking Dead), in attendance. TNT will world premiere the first episode of season 2’s Perception, with series stars Rachel Leigh Cook and Scott Wolf on hand. And IFC will also join the party, bearing the first episode of season 2 of their talk show Comedy Bang! Bang! with host/star Scott Aukerman cracking wise in person. READ FULL STORY
