10 days at SXSW harvesting all the spring TV that’s fit to stream.
This week, we decompress from SXSW 2018 and look back on what we saw and what we learned. One of the things we learned: Thandie Newton’s response to being asked what it’s like to play a strong female character during the Westworld panel is the only answer.
It was a big year for TV at SXSW, for both indie creators and marquee names: Tracy Morgan debuted his new TBS show The Last O.G., Netflix rallied for its hip-hop doc Rapture, and Westworld recreated Sweetwater, pushing fans to contemplate their moral color scheme. Bravo promoted original scripted series Imposters with a lavish party and social media gags. Fox Sports began its tall task of selling a World Cup that the United States didn’t qualify for.
