American Dreams Spoilers

This summer’s 2nd Annual ATX Festival is setting the stage for many a TV reunion, including the late, great American Dreams — but will your favorite Pryors be there?

TVLine has learned exclusively which actors, writers and producers behind the acclaimed ’60s-set drama are headed to Austin in June — and rest assured, you will not be disappointed.

But before we reveal the Dream-y panelists (Spoiler Alert: Brittany Snow!), here’s a quick recap on what ATX is all about: Launched last summer by two entertainment biz vets — and TV-loving gals – Caitlin McFarland and Emily Gipson, the weekend-long event celebrates great television: past, present and future. In addition to typical festival fodder like screenings and Q&As, ATX provides a forum in which attendees can interact with the industry folks — of both the on-screen and behind-the-scenes varieties — they admire most, like the American Dreams team.

Most of the Pryor clan will take part in the much-anticipated panel, including Dreams’ aforementioned leading lady Snow (Meg), Parenthood‘s Sarah Ramos (Patty), Tom Verica (Jack), Ethan Dampf (Will) and Rachel Boston (Beth). Friends of the fictional family will be in tow as well, with Glee‘s Vanessa Lengies (Roxanne), Arlen Escarpeta (Sam) and Jamie Elman (Luke) all confirmed to appear.

Creator Jonathan Prince also will be on hand to reminisce about the series, along with Dreams writer/producers Liz Tigelaar (Life Unexpected), David Semel (House), Becky Hartman Edwards (Switched at Birth), Jason Wilborn (Brothers & Sisters) and Rama Stagner (Army Wives).

Additional cast members will be added to the roster as the festival nears, so participation from Will Estes (JJ) and Gail O’Grady (Helen) is still a possibility.

Tickets for the bound-to-be epic weekend (June 6-9) can be purchased now at the official ATX site. There’s also still time to enter the festival’s inaugural Pitch Competition, in which you can share your brilliant ideas for a new series with the likes of Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town), Tigelaar and Kyle Killen (Awake).
