TNT and TBS are heading to SXSW, and they're bringing with them stars and producers of such series as TNT's Falling Skies and new dramas The Last Ship and Legends, as well as TBS's late-night series The Pete Holmes Show. On Monday, March 10, the networks will stage two panels during the annual music, film and interactive conference and festival held in Austin, Texas.

Eric Dane (Grey's Anatomy), Rhona Mitra (Strike Back) and Adam Baldwin (Chuck, Firefly) are scheduled to appear at the Watch Party.

TBS will kick off the panel presentations with The Pete Holmes Show Makes It Weird at 3:30 p.m. Host Pete Holmes will be joined by producers Nick Bernstein and Oren Brimer and head writer Karen Kilgariff for a panel discussion on what it takes to create a late-night series. At 5 p.m., TNT will present The New Golden Age of Drama on TV, a discussion about the resurgence in quality television dramas, with executive producers behind the network's hit series Falling Skies and the upcoming series The Last Ship and Legends.

SXSW attendees will have the first chance to catch this action-packed drama when TNT presents a Watch Party featuring the entire first episode. Starring Eric Dane and executive-produced by blockbuster filmmaker Michael Bay, The Last Ship opens with a global catastrophe that nearly decimates the world's population. Because of its positioning, the Navy destroyer U.S.S. Nathan James avoids falling victim to the devastating tragedy. But now, Captain Tom Chandler (Dane) and his crew must confront the reality of their new existence in a world where they may be among the few remaining survivors. Rhona Mitra plays Rachel Scott, a strong-willed, intelligent and fearless paleomicrobiologist assigned to the ship. And Adam Baldwin is XO Mike Slattery, a former homicide detective and Chandler's second-in-command.
