Saturday, October 11
Panel – 11:30am – 12:30pm: Screening/Q&A: To be a fan of FXX’s The League, you don’t need to know much about fantasy football, or sports at all. You just need to have friends that you hate. The ensemble comedy follows a group of old friends in a fantasy football league who care deeply about one another – so deeply that they use every opportunity to make each other’s lives miserable. Join The League’s co-creators Jeff Schaffer and Jackie Marcus Schaffer, as well as the ensemble cast, including Stephen Rannazzisi, Katie Aselton, Jason Mantzoukas, Mark Duplass, Jon Lajoie and Paul Scheer as they discuss making this successful series for six seasons.
