      The creators and cast of Battlestar Galactica talk about the re-imagining of the show, what makes it different, and its impact on everyday life. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Battlestar Galactica, the re-imagining of the 1978 ABC sci-fi series about a lost tribe of humans on a fleet of starships, led by the Battlestar Galactica, during a war with the robotic Cylons. David Bushman (television and advertising curator, The Paley Center for Media) moderates the following panelists: executive producers Ronald D.

William Adama). After a video hello from actress Tricia Helfer (Six), the panelists cover a number of topics, including why the producers decided to re-imagine Battlestar Galactica, the social relevance of the show, the casting and writing processes, the difference between BSG and other sci-fi shows, and the use of the word "frak" in everyday life.moreless

      The cast and creative team of Dollhouse discuss the show's difficult "birthing process" and other topics. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Dollhouse, a drama series about an organization that erases the identities of its workers – known as "dolls" – and reprograms them for clients' specific needs. Matt Roush (TV Guide) moderates the following panelists: series creator/executive producer/writer/director Joss Whedon; co-executive producer/writer Elizabeth Craft; co-executive producer Sarah Fain; and cast members Eliza Dushku (Echo), Fran Kranz (Topher), Dichen Lachman (Sierra), and Miracle Laurie (Mellie). Joss Whedon's new Fox series Dollhouse reunites him with erstwhile bad-girl Slayer and redoubtable butt-kicker Eliza Dushku, this time playing Echo, an "active"-an identity-less, programmable super-agent-in the employ of the mysterious Dollhouse organization. Dark, disturbing, and spiked with unexpected humor and pathos, Dollhouse recalls Whedon's previous classic series while carving out a distinctively mesmerizing, unsettling atmosphere all its own. Panelists touch on such topics as: the show's difficult "birthing process"; the challenge for Dushku and fellow "dolls" of playing a different personality each week while projecting the same core character; why Dollhouse is the most "dangerous" show that Whedon has produced; and if having female writers negates criticism that the show objectifies women.moreless

      Project Runway's producers, former contestants, and supermodel host Heidi Klum talk about how the show is produced and its impact on popular culture. Bravo's Emmy Award–nominated Project Runway visits The Paley Center for Media. Project Runway has turned an unlikely premise-up-and-coming designers creating garments on the fly in a series of outré challenges-into one of the most popular and critically acclaimed reality series on television. Buoyed by the icy charm of supermodel host and executive producer Heidi Klum and the avuncular guidance of style guru Tim Gunn, Project Runway is the rare reality competition that focuses more on creativity and skill than audience-baiting "personalities"...and it's always in good taste. The Project Runway creative team of series executive producer Rich Bye, Weinstein Company EVP John Miller, executive producers Barbara Schneeweiss, Jane Lipsitz, and Jane Cha-along with host Heidi Klum and former contestants Kara Saun, Andrae Gonzalo, and Santino Rice-discusses the production of the show and its impact on popular culture. Kristin Dos Santos (E! Entertainment Network) moderates the panel.moreless

      X-Files creator Chris Carter discusses his new movie-The X-Files: I Want to Believe-and the show that started it all. This William S. Paley Television Festival evening honors Chris Carter, his 2008 X-Files movie (which he wrote and directed), and the iconic Fox TV series that spawned it. Airing from 1993 to 2002, The X-Files beguiled critics and viewers alike, nailing the zeitgeist on the head at a time when radio talk show hosts fueled a grassroots movement suspecting conspiracies behind almost every action emanating from the White House. Chris Carter had set out just to make a scary little show in the tradition of Kolchak: The Night Stalker, but ended up with a Peabody and sixteen Emmys, a legion of die-hard fans, and scholarly articles analyzing his seminal work. Barbara Dixon (director, The Paley Center for Media, Los Angeles) welcomes the audience and introduces Variety's Cynthia Littleton, who moderates the following panelists: writer Steven Maeda, producer/director Rob Bowman, post production supervisor Paul Rabwin, writer Darin Morgan, co-executive producer Glen Morgan, producer/director David Nutter, executive producer Howard Gordon; actors Nicholas Lea (Alex Krycek), Dean Haglund (Langly), and Mitch Pileggi (FBI Asst.

Ron Simon (television curator, The Paley Center for Media) moderates the following panelists: cast members Kim Cattrall (Samantha Jones), Kristin Davis (Charlotte York), Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Hobbes), and actress/producer Sarah Jessica Parker (Carrie Bradshaw); and executive producer/writer/director Michael Patrick King. The discussion covers the cast's initial reactions to the script and the factors that led to their taking the roles, the ways in which their lives are affected by the program and the characters they play, and the reactions of their mothers to the program.
