The cast of “Ugly Betty” reunited Saturday night at the Atx Television Festival — and they pitched another possible reunion.
America Ferrera, Michael Urie, Tony Plana, Eric Mabius, Ana Ortiz, Vanessa Williams, Mark Indelicato, Rebecca Romijn, Ashley Jensen, Judith Light and showrunner Silvio Horta gathered together at the Austin, Texas fest where they reminisced about the ABC series that ran four seasons.
“It was like losing a family,” Ferrera said about when the show went off the air. She added, “There’s always a little piece of me…that still doesn’t want to let this go.”
With that said, the cast spoke up about a possible revival of the critically-acclaimed show. After all, TV biz is in the midst of the streaming age in which anything can be brought back, it seems. (Last year’s Atx hosted a “Gilmore Girls” reunion, and one year later, Netflix is rebooting the beloved series.)
“Hulu’s going to pick us up for a two-hour special,” Ferrera said in jest. However, she continued with a pitch for the revival: “That’s not true, but if you tweet it…Everybody here take out your phone. Hashtag: Betty Reboot. We need a hashtag and tweet it out and then we’re going to get Hulu to buy a two-hour special.”
Though Ferrera was seemingly joking with her pitch, Horta also chimed in on the possibility, and it was apparent that he has thought about the idea — under one condition: the entire original team would be involved.
“Here’s the only thing I know for sure — if we were to do something, it would be a dream, but everybody on this stage would have to be involved. And Becki Newton,” Horta said.
Then Ferrera jutted in, exclaiming, “I mean, it took 20 minutes for everyone to say yes to my email to be at Atx!’

The last two episodes of Fear The Walking Dead took viewers to the Abigail compound, a place run by Celia Flores, a woman who sees the apocalypse as a promising new phase of life. With Fear The Walking Dead now on break until August, Daily Dead had the absolute pleasure of speaking with Marlene Forte, the actress who plays Celia, about her actions in the Mid-Season 2 finale, her character’s understanding of Nick and compassion for Daniel, and the potential question mark surrounding Celia’s future. *Spoiler Warning*
Thank you for taking the time to talk with me today, and congratulations on your phenomenal performance as Celia on Fear The Walking Dead.

This year's Atx Television Festival lineup has just gotten even more awesome: The cast of "The West Wing" is one of several new additions now set for a reunion at the event.
Atx Fest announced its updated lineup on Thursday, and the most exciting name is easily "The West Wing," NBC's political drama that ran for seven seasons and racked up multiple Emmy wins (and stole viewers' hearts) from 1999 to 2006. Creator and original showrunner Aaron Sorkin is set to appear, as are the following cast members: Bradley Whitford (Josh), Dule Hill (Charlie), Joshua Malina (Will), Richard Schiff (Toby), and Janel Moloney (Donna).
More actors are expected to join the panel (after all, you can't call it a proper "West Wing" reunion without President Bartlett and C.J. Cregg, a.k.a. Martin Sheen and Allison Janney), which also includes director Thomas Schlamme. The participants will gather in honor of the »

Nightmares Blu-ray Scream Factory 1983 / Color / 1:78 widescreen + 1:33 TV flat / 99 min. / Street Date December 22, 2015 / 29.99 Starring Cristina Raines, Anthony James, Lee Ving; Emilio Estevez, Moon Unit Zappa, Billy Jayne, Gary Carlos Cervantes; Lance Henriksen, Tony Plana, Timothy Scott; Richard Masur, Veronica Cartwright, Bridgette Andersen, Albert Hague.
