If you’re in New York May 21 and 22, come to Vulture’s 3rd Annual TV Festival! Vulture, New York Magazine’s pop culture and entertainment site, has invited many BGN favorites to headline events, talks, and screenings, including:
- Shonda Rhimes! BGN has been WAITING to get in a room with Shonda and this could be our chance!
- Cast members of USA Network’s Mr. Robot, including stars Rami Malek and Christian Slater.
- The Daily Show‘s own Trevor Noah. (It’s the same time as the Shonda Rhimes event, so we’re going to have to divide and conquer on this one.)
- Jessica Jones’ Melissa Rosenberg and Krysten Ritter
- Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson of Two Dope Queens (who we’ve featured on the site before)
- Several animated voice artists, including Aisha Tyler (Archer), Carlos Alazraqui (Bordertown, Inside Out, Happy Feet), Elizabeth EG Daily (Rugrats, The Powerpuff Girls), and Maurice LaMarche (Pinky and the Brain, Futurama, Kung Fu Panda, The Powerpuff Girls, Zootopia, Rick and Morty).
Other events include a first look at the TNT series Animal Kingdom, the creators and stars of Better Call Saul, a Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Musical Revue, an Alice Through the Looking Glass screening, and a Happy Endings reunion.
Check out the website for more of the line-up and purchase tickets here. Tickets are sold primarily by event, but there are Vulture Passes available for purchase through May 6th. Many of the events will be held at Milk Studios in the Meatpacking District. Also, many of the events include access to the Vulture Lounge after each event, including free drinks!
BGN will be there covering a few of these events, so let us know if you’re attending! There’s something for everyone so definitely check it out! Tweet us @BlackGirlNerds and @ConStar24 if you plan on attending! We’ll be using the hashtag #BGNVultureFestival for BGN specific coverage and updates.
