The new HBO series Vice Principals and the new Robert Kirkman Cinemax series Outcast will make their world premieres at panels of the 2016 SXSW Music, Film and Interactive Festival this March, while the panel for HBO’s Silicon Valley will spotlight the upcoming third season of the hit new comedy series.
On Friday, March 11th, the upcoming HBO comedy series Vice Principals starring Danny McBride and Walton Goggins, will make its world premiere at the 2016 SXSW Festival. At 8:45 p.m. in the Alamo Ritz Theater 1, a screening of the first two episodes will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and cast. On stage for the Q&A will be cast members Danny McBride, Walton Goggins and Kimberly Hébert Gregory, and executive producers Jody Hill and David Gordon Green. Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, who also created HBO’s “Eastbound & Down,” Vice Principals is a dark comedy series that tells the story of a high school and the two people who almost run it, the vice principals. McBride and Goggins star as the rival administrators, who are in an epic power struggle, vying for the top spot: to be school principal. The half-hour show is slated for 18 episodes over two seasons.
On Saturday, March 12th, Silicon Valley executive producers Mike Judge & Alec Berg will join cast members Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Martin Starr and Zach Woods for a discussion, “Silicon Valley: Making the World a Better Place.” The session will be in Room 18ABCD at the Austin Convention Center at 5:00 p.m. The Emmy®-winning and Golden Globe-nominated series takes a comic look at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. The show returns for its third season on April 24th.
Outcast, the upcoming Robert Kirkman series based on the Skybound/Image comic, will make its world premiere on Monday, March 14th. Following the screening at the Vimeo Theater at 1:15 p.m., a panel will be moderated by Kumail Nanjiani (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”). Panelists include: creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman, showrunner and executive producer Chris Black, cast member Patrick Fugit and pilot director Adam Wingard. Outcast follows Kyle Barnes (Fugit), a young man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life. Outcast has been featured at both San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con and is slated to debut this summer.
