First Tribeca TV Festival to take place in NYC Sept. 22-24

The Tribeca Film Festival has become a traditional festival every Spring in New York City. However, in the past few years, the Festival has had screenings of TV shows, followed by Q&As with the casts, in addition to movie screenings.

In 2017, for example, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale had is premiere at the festival, as well as Nat Geo’s Genius. This is the result of the increasing quality and quantity of TV shows released every year, which have been arguably more interesting than movies released in theaters.

To follow this trend, the Tribeca Film has launched its first ever TV Festival, to take place between September 22nd and 24th at the Cinépolis Chelsea in New York.

The line-up includes a sneak peek of Better Things (FX), followed by a conversation co-creator Louis C.K.; the series premiere of At Home with Amy Sedaris (truTV), followed by a conversation with co-creator Amy Sedaris and Andy Cohen; the series premiere of ABC’s Ten Days in the Valley, followed by a conversation with star/EP Kyra Sedgwick; a sneak peek of Gotham‘s new season, followed by a conversation with Executive Producer Danny Cannon and ensemble cast Ben McKenzie, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bicondova, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, & Jessica Lucas, and more.

The main event is the special conversation on Sept. 23rd with Will & Grace stars Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes, Megan Mullally and show creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan before the highly-anticipated reboot this fall.

Tickets are on sale now.  You can see the full schedule here.

  1. Now, if the TV Festival would have included “Downward Dog” and “Sherlock”, I would have gone. Would somebody please pick up “Downward Dog”! ABC had just two wonderful, fabulously written shows, “Modern Family” (still rocking, thank heavens) and “Downward Dog” and those idiots at ABC cancelled it. How much is that doggy in the window? I suspect Pepper is now running the network. Just had to stand up for the mutt.
