Apple’s Eddy Cue will be a featured speaker at the immensely popular SXSW conference in Austin this March.

The senior vice president of internet software and services is also leading the company’s charge into video programming.

He will be chatting with Dylan Byers, a senior reporter at CNN.

“The speakers announced today feature a diverse group of leaders and innovators that make SXSW the foremost destination for creative people,” said Hugh Forrest, Chief Programming Officer. “As SXSW celebrates the 25th year of Interactive and Film, the cross-industry talent announced today reflects the ongoing convergence of the modern world, the trends we see throughout our programming, and the paramount reason for our now unified conference experience.”

While Cue is in charge of a number of important areas at Apple, it will definitely be interesting to see if he discusses more about the push into video. Apple has ordered a number of different TV series with big names including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and others.

The conference is March 9-18 in Austin. Other featured speakers include Spike Lee, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, “The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson and others.
