The new Tribeca TV Festival will make its debut in New York City this September.


The sister of the Tribeca Film Festival, the Tribeca TV Festival will feature plenty of mainstream television shows to be consumed and critiqued by audiences. The festival will be a place for the next big thing in television to make its mark, as streaming services and network television slowly steals moviegoers away from the cinema.

Robert De Niro, one of the founders of the festival, is excited to give television a proper platform. “Ten years ago we wouldn’t have needed a TV festival. Now, with the change in the TV landscape, both the quality and quantity of shows, it makes sense,” he said. “As the Tribeca Film Festival has done, the Tribeca TV Festival will act as a curator in bringing people together for this emerging experience.”

The festival will take place at Cinépolis Chelsea from Sept. 22 through Sept. 24. The official website promises appearances by the cast of Will & GraceLouis C.K.Pamela Anderson, as well as conversations with Amy SedarisAndy Cohen, and Kyra Sedgwick.

Some new shows that will be displayed are At Home with Amy SedarisBetter ThingsLiarLook but with Love, and Ten Days in the Valley. The season two premiere of Designated Survivor, a sneak peak of Gotham, and the season three premiere of Amazon’s Red Oaks will also be shared. Ava DuVernay‘s show, Queen Sugar, will also air its season 2 midseason premiere.
