The Tribeca TV Festival has announced additions to its inaugural line-up, including the series premiere of OWN’s docuseries Released from Oprah Winfrey, a conversation with Trevor Noah of The Daily Show, and the series world premiere of YouTube Red show Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes On Television. The Tribeca TV Festival runs September 22-24 in New York City.
The festival will screen the series premiere of OWN’s Released, which centres on formerly-incarcerated men and women restarting their lives, and will be followed by a conversation with executive producer Oprah Winfrey and the creators. A conversation with Trevor Noah and the writers of The Daily Show will explore the role of comedians in today’s mercurial political landscape.
In addition, the festival will present the world premiere of YouTube Red’s cop comedy Ryan Hansen Solves Crimes On Television from director Rawson Marshall Thurber, and the season two premiere of Blackpills’ sex comedy web-series Pillow Talk.
Panels with the creative minds behind the programmes will follow each event, in addition to standalone conversations with other creative voices in television.
Tribeca announced the standalone Tribeca TV Festival last month, which is an expansion of its existing April TV programme. The festival will highlight premieres, and also draw attention to under-the-radar work. These most recent additions join the festival’s previously announced line-up that includes a reunion and celebration of NBC’s Will & Grace ahead of its reboot this autumn, the series premiere of ABC’s Ten Days In The Valley, as well as the season premiere of Amazon’s Red Oaks from Steven Soderbergh.
