Curb Your Zombieland, Girls: Nashville Screenwriters Conference Announces Panelists



Everybody in the film and TV industry wants to direct. What's really needed is people who want to write, and who want to learn what mistakes and shortcuts to avoid that will help them write well. It's for them that the 15th annual Nashville Screenwriters Conference takes place May 31-June 2 at Union Station Hotel.

The conference hasn't yet released its full schedule and roster of panels. But the NSC just unveiled a preliminary list of panelists — a group whose credits include Girls, South Park, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Blind Side, Identity Thief, New Girl, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Pitch Perfect, Zombieland, The Devil Wears Prada and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, to name just a few.

More will be announced soon. In the meantime, registration is now open, with prices ranging from $55 for students to the standard $110 for the entire weekend. (Some panels and events, such as music supervisor Anastasia Brown's annual luncheon, require an extra fee.) Below, a list of scheduled guests so far from the NSC release:
