“It is always a pleasure to celebrate the best in television at SCAD TVfest in Atlanta,” says Christina Routhier, senior executive director of SCAD theaters and festivals. “From our terrific honorees, including iconic actors Kelsey Grammer, George Lopez, and Ken Watanabe, to our shows and panels lineup featuring some of the most buzzed-about shows like The Gilded Age and The Morning Show, we can’t wait to give Atlantans and our phenomenal SCAD students a full slate of exciting programming.”

Adds SCAD president and founder Paula Wallace: “All eyes in the TV universe look to SCAD — for hiring students and alumni as well as using SCAD’s phenomenal stages for professional productions. Buzz for SCAD TVfest is at a fever pitch this year, with both the expansion of the university’s top-ranked B.F.A. in acting and our elite SCAD Casting Office to SCAD Atlanta. As if that’s not enough, SCAD TVfest guests will also get to experience screenings in our pristine new theater, SCADshow, ensconced within the magnificent new FORTY FIVE, a five-star resort for SCAD Bees in the heart of Midtown. This year’s SCAD TVfest shines bright — just like the Bees who already lend their luster to the best shows on television!”
