PaleyFest NY 2020: 'Supernatural,' 'The Boys,' 'Girlfriends' & More
Get ready to carve out several more hours from your schedule to celebrate your favorite (and soon-to-be favorite) shows via discussions with the casts.
The Paley Center for Media announced the lineup for the 8th annual PaleyFest NY, and it includes Supernatural, The Boys, A Million Little Things, The Undoing, and Rick and Morty. The conversations will be available on the Paley channel on Verizon Media's Yahoo Entertainment, on Friday, October 23, Monday, October 26, and Tuesday, October 27.
Citi Card members and Paley Center members can already preview the programs. Paley members will also be able to preview full episodes from select shows ahead of their broadcast date, including The Undoing premiere, Eli Roth's History of Horror Season 2 Episode 2, and a special Supernatural teaser from an upcoming episode.
"It is an absolute honor to be chosen by Paley Fest NY as part of this year's incredible Opening Night lineup. I know how much the festival means to the fans, and it's so thrilling to debut The Undoing at this one-of-a-kind event," the HBO drama's executive producer and director Susanne Bier said. "We are deeply proud of our show, and on behalf of myself, Nicole Kidman, David E. Kelley, Hugh Grant, and our entire cast and crew, we want to thank everyone for celebrating this launch with us."
"PaleyFest is my favorite press event of the year," A Million Little Things creator and executive producer DJ Nash said. "And this year because it's on Zoom, I get to do it in shorts and a dress shirt. I'm gonna look like a first grader on picture day."
"There's no genre I love like horror and no one I love talking about movies with more than Quentin. We could have easily talked for ten hours, which is about normal for us when we get on a roll," Roth said. "I was so honored to have him join me for the series, no one else on the planet has his insight and knowledge of film and he always makes it fun and accessible to everyone. It was a great, great talk I think everyone watching will enjoy."
"It's been an honor to be included in PaleyFests in the past, and certainly this year is no exception," Supernatural co-showrunner and executive producer Robert Singer said. "I think your support over the years has certainly helped us reach this 15 season milestone and we are eternally grateful. Thank you!"
"There's only one thing that can provide hope in these dark and troubling times: watching writers and actors talk about themselves. Seriously though, we really love making this show, and hope you check out the panel for behind-the-scenes stories and secrets," The Boys showrunner and executive producer Eric Kripke said. "Thanks to the brilliant and talented Melissa Fumero for risking her career by moderating. It's an honor to be invited to PaleyFest NY, and we look forward to making them regret it."
