  • STEADY MOBBING: CeeLo, T-Mo, Khujo and Gipp will be in attendance for their reality show screening Fri., Feb. 7.

After the initial announcement nearly a year ago, CeeLo's TBS reality show, "CeeLo Green's The Good Life," is set for a sneak peek at this weekend's SCAD aTVfest. And CeeLo will be on-hand, along with the rest of the Goodie Mob, for a live Q&A to follow Friday's screening. The series promises to give viewers a behind-the-scenes ride-along as the Mob prepared to re-enter the scene last year with the release and promotion of the 2013 reunion album Age Against the Machine. Here's the setup:

To enjoy this ride of a lifetime, all they have to do is navigate a demanding schedule, the perks and temptations of being at the top of the music game, and 20 years of history together, all while keeping their friendship intact.

TBS has ordered six episodes, but you know the drill. If the ratings are impressive, we could be seeing more of the Mob on cable TV. At last spring's media listening for Age Against the Machine, Big Gipp assured those in attendance that Goodie Mob would not be contributing to Atlanta's reality-show cesspool with "The Good Life." Should be interesting to see the finished product. Executive producers Andrew Jameson and Eli Frankel will also be there for the post-screening panel discussion. $5. 4 p.m. Fri., Feb. 7. Main stage.

Other SCAD aTVFest event highlights include:

>> Opening night screening of FX's "Justified" (based on Elmore Leonard's novella "Fire in the Hole") followed by a Q&A with producer Katie DiMento and co-producer/writer Ingrid Escajeda. $5. 7:30 p.m. Thurs., Feb. 6..

>> Discussion of Netflix's "Orange is the New Black," with cast members Uzo Aduba ("Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes' Warren"), Danielle Brooks ("Tasha 'Taystee' Jefferson"), Matt McGorry ("John Bennett"), and Samira Wiley ("Poussey Washington") $5. 4 p.m. Sat., Feb. 8.

>> Screening of FX's "The Americans," followed by an in-depth discussion with the show's production designer, assistant costume designer, location manager, and prop master. $5. 4 p.m. Sat. Feb. 8.
