The show must go on as the Paley Center for Media announced the lineup for this year’s PaleyFest LA. Held virtually for the first time, the event will begin Friday, August 7 for Citi card members and Paley members, and all programs will be made available to the public on Monday, August 10 via the Paley YouTube page.

The Virtual PaleyFest LA’s selections include Netflix’s Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings (moderated by Jim Halterman), YouTube’s Justin Bieber: Seasons, NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers, Amazon Prime Video’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, FX on Hulu’s Mrs. America, Pop TV’s One Day at a Time, Starz’s Outlander (moderated by Kate Hahn), and Netflix’s Ozark and Queer Eye. And in a special treat for members only, the cast and creative team of Pop TV’s Schitt’s Creek will reunite to reflect on their final season.

“PaleyFest LA has been the premier television festival in the country for more than thirty-five years, and, we’re so pleased to bring this best-in-class festival to millions of fans virtually for the first time through our Paley YouTube channel,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We look forward to presenting this incredible lineup of programs featuring the shows that make us laugh, take us into a world of mystery, comfort us, and shine a light on pressing social issues. We’re thrilled to welcome back Citi as the official card of PaleyFest and we couldn’t ask for a better partner.”

“Because the two of us are pretty sick of looking at each other, we are thrilled with the invitation to jump online and talk to other people about comedy. Many thanks to PaleyFest for the opportunity,” said The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino.

Outlander executive producer Matthew B. Roberts also expressed excitement in a statement forwarded by Paley. “It is a tremendous honor to be part of PaleyFest LA 2020. In times of uncertainty, we often look to the support of our families and communities. The global community – or family – of Outlander fans has been steadfast in their support over the years.  Though we may not be able to do so in person, we look forward to being able to offer our thanks virtually, and are immensely grateful to The Paley Center for the privilege of participating.”

“We couldn’t be happier. The list of shows that have been included in PaleyFest is like a laundry list of our favorite series ever,” added Ozark executive producer Chris Mundy. “So, to look back on Ozark Season 3 as part of this group is truly an honor.”
