If you're wrapping up 2017 knowing you need something to look forward to in the new year, look no further than the 35th annual PaleyFest, the television festival of the Paley Center for Media. Beginning in 1984 as a series of screenings that honored television, PaleyFest has since grown into an iconic festival that television fans everywhere can get excited about.
Thursday morning, the Paley Center for Media announced the first three shows that will be a part of PaleyFest LA, which will return to the Dolby Theater in Hollywood on March 16-25: Netflix's Stranger Things, NBC's Will & Grace and this season's breakout hit, ABC's The Good Doctor will panel with the casts and producers for fans. The full schedule for the festival will be revealed on January 9.
“For thirty-five years PaleyFest LA has set the standard for what a television festival should be,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re so proud to announce the first three selections for this special anniversary, each of which represent the best of what television has to offer, and epitomize the stellar programming featured at PaleyFest LA year after year.”
