ABC's Scandal and AMC's Better Call Saul have joined the 2016 PaleyFest lineup at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. Scandal will be paneled on Tuesday, March 15, while Better Call Saul will be the 2 pm matinee on Saturday, March 12.

“The Paley Center for Media is pleased to present an outstanding and diverse group of events at this year’s PaleyFest LA, welcoming the talented actors and creative forces that define excellence in front of and behind the camera," said Paley Center for Media President Maureen J. Reidy in a statement. "We’re thrilled to continue the Paley Center’s tradition of celebrating television and embracing inclusivity by honoring the many diverse voices and storylines that make a cultural impact while also bringing joy and entertainment to all types of audiences.”

This marks the second year in a row Scandal will be honored by PaleyFest; this is Better Call Saul's first trip to the festival, though its mothership show, Breaking Bad, was previously honored.
