The comedy, which is co-written and produced by the two musicians, both of which also star, was first announced last year after the duo had worked on a series of mock interview segments promoting Clark’s latest album, ‘MASSEDUCTION’. The Nowhere Inn follows Clark as she attempts to make a behind-the-scenes documentary with the intention to “both reveal and revel in the unadorned truth behind her on-stage persona.”

Meanwhile, Reznor, Ross, and writer Damon Lindelof will talk about their collaboration on the HBO series Watchmen. And documentary filmmaker Michael Moore will be in conversation with Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters.

Diplo, Kim Gordon and Nile Rodgers were previously announced to speak at the 2020 conference, which takes place in Austin, Texas from March 13-22. Check out the full roster for the festival here.
