Kevin Bacon, “Archer,” “grown-ish” coming to ATX Television festival
Oh, yes, Austin. We’re about to be one degree away from Kevin Bacon (if you count seeing as a degree...which is not a thing..ok, nevermind).
Actor Kevin Bacon will join Season 8 of the ATX festival previously announced presentation of the never-picked-up “Tremors” pilot from writer/executive producer Andrew Miller based on the 1990 film of the same name. Bacon, who was set to reprise his starring role as Valentine McKee, joins Andrew Miller, executive producer Jessica Rhoades, and cast members Toks Olagundoye, P.J. Byrne, Haley Tju, and Emily Tremaine for the panel.
A mess of new ATX TV fest content was announced Wednesday.
ATX will premiere HBO's upcoming summer series "Euphoria," created, written by, and executive produced by Sam Levinson, as this opening night screening and panel on Thursday June 6th.

The screening will be followed by a panel conversation.
