Season Renewal: On the Scene of ATX TV Fest 2013
- - -
Finally, I attended one last panel (I’ll just say it, I went to a lot of damn panels this weekend) about changing roles in Hollywood, how someone can transition from actor to writer to director. Surprisingly Dan Harmon wasn’t on the panel, but Tom Verica from Scandal and American Dreams, Scott Aukerman of Mr. Show and Comedy Bang! Bang!, Dan Bucatinski from Grey’s Anatomy and The Comeback, and my favorite discovery of the weekend, Brad Bell of the web series Husbands. The panel went disastrously, with a moderator that offended both the crowd and the panelists with his dismissive attitude and constant questioning of their artistic intentions, but Brad Bell swooped in and saved this sinking ship with great insight into his transition from YouTube celebrity to producer and writer. But mostly, he expertly filibustered the awful moderator.
I left a smidge early to grab a slice of 7/11 pizza and to get a good seat for the Husbands / Stupid Hype panel. Once again, I was charmed by Brad Bell who, along with his Husbands co-star and co-writer Sean Hemeon and Jane Espenson, was so well spoken and incredibly intelligent. He is a breath of fresh air in the television world and it’s great to see LGBT creative types that aren’t at by Logo and Bravo.
