ATX Television Festival Season 5 Recap (00:06:44)

We started out by comparing Season 5 to previous seasons we have attended and then talked a little bit about how they improved the line situations, but how they can use the info a bit better.

Then we went over what we did each day at ATX Television Festival Season 5 in Austin, TX (@ATXFestival). We went over what panels we attended and pointed out our favorite moments throughout the weekend, including some of the best things we ate and whether we will be back again for Season 6. Spoiler alert, the answer is yes!

Shows we talked a bit about include upcoming series Queen of the South on USA Network and Pitch on FOX, present series The Jim Gaffigan Show on TV Land, Life in Pieces on CBS, Preacher on AMC and UnREAL on Lifetime, the cancelled too soon show Terriers, and others.

We also talked about panels we attended regarding breaking story, cancelled too soon shows, pitching to development executives, TV stunts, and many others.
