Every March, television fans gather in Southern California at the William S. Paley Television Festival—commonly known as PaleyFest—to celebrate the medium with the casts and creators of their favorite shows. The annual event, hosted by the Paley Center for Media, is right around the corner and will take place between March 13 and March 28, 2014 at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood, California. And now we know exactly who will be there!
This year's lineup—which was just announced in full—is looking particularly fun, with a mostly balanced load of shows new and old. In addition to the previously announced Veronica Mars reunion (which takes place March 13, the night before the film's premiere), Lost will commemorate its tenth birthday (OMG WHAT?) with a reunion of its own, which I imagine will be fun for everyone except Damon Lindelof. There will also be a final farewell to departing series How I Met Your Mother.
The rest of the panels will focus on new(er) shows in their prime, like Sleepy Hollow, Masters of Sex, Orange Is the New Black, and Veep, as well as a few veterans, including Mad Men, Pretty Little Liars, and Parks and Recreation. Individual tickets go on sale January 16 for Paley Center Supporting Members, January 17 for general members, and January 19 for the general public. (Multi-event tickets will be available as early as this weekend.)
