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.
