Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re so proud that our lineup reflects the diversity of the television viewing experience—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.”
“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 Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator/executive producer and Daniel Palladino, the executive producer. “It’ll be a fun night of celebrating with fans, and the last time we’ll all look rested until August.”
