On Wednesday, March 20, there will be a two-panel event for The CW's beloved series, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: The Farewell Seasons. The next day's panel is a special one for fans of NBC's former Amy Poehler-led comedy, as the festival will celebrate with the Parks and Recreation 10th Anniversary Reunion.
Set for Friday, March 22, is a special panel for AMC's The Walking Dead, and the next day the casts of CBS's Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver, and Magnum P.I. will be present as well, alongside FX's Pose. Meanwhile, on Sunday, March 24, the final day of the festival, CBS All Access's Star Trek: Discovery and The Twilight Zone will appear in a special two-panel event, while NBC's This Is Us will close the festival at 7pm.
"We're so proud that our lineup reflects the diversity of the television viewing experience," said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center's President & CEO, "from history-making programs highlighting the LGBTQ+ community, to Emmy Award-winning comedies and dramas with strong female characters, action-packed adventure series, and a conversation with one of the sharpest voices on late-night TV. This year's selections epitomize why PaleyFest LA is the premier television festival."
CBS All Access' Julie McNamara also reveals that Jordan Peele's narrator is 'part of the environment.'
Echoing Reidy's excitement are the many stars and showrunners who are set to appear.
"Just days before we commence shooting Season 3 of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, we thought we'd drop by and kick off the fabulous PaleyFest 2019," said the show's creator and executive producers Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino.
"We can't wait to be surrounded by our passionate fans to discuss the themes and threats our survivors have been facing in the new world they inhabit," The Walking Dead's showrunner Angela Kang said of the PaleyFest appearance.
Meanwhile, Grace and Frankie's Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin shared, "We said yes because we heard RuPaul is going to be there."
