Director/Producer Thomas Schlamme will attend this year’s AFF as a panelist (schedule permitting, of course). Thomas is the guy behind such great shows as The West Wing, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Sports Night, Jack & Bobby and Tracy Takes On. He also directed several episodes of those shows as well as The Larry Sanders Show, Mad About You and ER, in addition to the films Miss Firecracker and So I Married an Axe Murder. Thomas Schlamme attended the festival in 2004 when he presented the award for Outstanding Television Writer to Garry Shandling. Below, from left, Garry Shandling, Thomas Schlamme and Barry Levinson.
