The session will begin with a screening of the pilot episode which will be followed by a discussion with series creator Kyle Killen. He’ll discuss the TV industry, his experiences making the show, and its untimely demise. The panel was scheduled before FOX cancelled Lone Star and Killen expected that the panel would be cancelled as well.
In an interview, Killen said, “I’m as excited as I can be talking about a canceled show. I would love to be at the festival under different circumstances. But I’m excited and bolstered by the enthusiasm on what the show did.”
Killen also noted that he’s still trying to find another outlet for the series and is talking to various cable outlets.
Noah Hawley, the creator of ABC’s recently cancelled My Generation and The Unusuals, is scheduled to appear at the conference on Saturday. He’s scheduled to participate in two panels; “The Business of Writing for Television” and “Showrunners.”
