The producers and cast of Seeso's "Bajillion Dollar Propertie$," a half-hour, semi-scripted comedy with an ensemble of seven real estate agents set against the backdrop of a luxury, cut throat LA real estate firm, will kick off the live event with a special "Bajillion Dollar Propertie$" episode with creator and executive producer Kulap Vilaysack's and her co-host Howard Kremer's "Who Charted?" podcast.

The Saturday night grand finale will feature stand-up sets from Executive Producers of "Take My Wife," Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher, as well as a special appearance by Jonah Ray from "Hidden America with Jonah Ray" at 10:00PM CT.
Cameron Esposito will give SXSW-goers a sneak peek of her upcoming, first-ever stand-up special "Cameron Esposito: Marriage Material" on Sunday March 13 at 7:00PM CT at The Hideout in Austin. The "Cameron Esposito: Marriage Material" special officially premieres on Seeso March 24.
