Less than two months to go now until the ATX Television Festival in Austin Texas. Running from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 June, a veritable plethora of Gilmore Girls cast members are scheduled to appear on Saturday 6 June, including show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino.
The list of attendees currently stands at:
Amy Sherman-Palladino (Writer/EP), Cast: Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, Scott Patterson, Liza Weil, Keiko Agena, Jared Padalecki, Sean Gunn, Liz Torres, Yanic Truesdale, John Cabrera
That’s Lorelai, Rory, Emily, Luke, Paris, Lane, Dean, Kirk, Miss Patty, Michel and Brian with the deviated septum. Just writing those names in a row sends a shiver up my spine.
As if that wasn’t enough, Amy Sherman-Palladino will be hosting a Bunheads panel! Kelly Bishop, Stacey Oristano and Sutton Foster (Fanny, Truly and Michelle) will re-unite for a screening, discussion and hopefully an interpretative dance routine about the cancellation of shows in their prime. Wishful thinking, perhaps.
Aside from the expected table Q&A, I wonder if they’ll do something less expected, like a read-through or some kind of announcement about – I don’t know – a new season?! The Dawson’s Creek Writer’s Room reunion has expanded in scope, now including a pilot read-through with show creator Kevin Williamson and ‘special guests’… only Dawson, Pacey, Jen and Joey would do it for me.
Here is the full run-down of the weekend’s shows and guest stars. Weekend badges are still available for US$225 although check out @ATXFestival tweets for people re-selling their $175 weekend badges.
I wonder if they’ll have a table long enough to accommodate the entire cast… or if Amy will bring Bert the toolbox along for Luke to do some fixing up.
Please, somebody be attending! I’m totally bummed that I have a dear friend’s wedding to attend. Is anyone else excited about this? Now with added Bunheads!
What questions would you want to ask?
Who else – or what other shows – would you want to see there?
