    Venue: State Theatre

    Nine years after the series’ end, we sit down with the creatives behind one of TV’s most essential teen dramas to discuss all things Newport — from casting, to writing, to the show’s iconic soundtrack, and the lasting imprint of The O.C. in the pop culture and television canon. California, here we come… again. Following this in depth discussion, we will host a script reading of the THE O.C. Pilot featuring special guest cast.

  • Series - The Shield

    Date: Saturday, 6/11
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Venue: State Theatre

    In 2002, FX’s original series The Shield – an unblinking, unapologetic take on the cop-procedural – sent a shockwave through television, due largely in part to creator Shawn Ryan and his equally unblinking writing team. While these writers have gone on to create, show-run, and produce a prolific amount of excellent television, we’re bringing them back to discuss where it all started, and how their experience on the critically-revered series has shaped their respective careers.
