The Paley Center for Media said that PaleyFest LA will go virtual for the first time because of the coronavirus pandemic, setting its 2020 edition for August with a guest lineup for 10 series that includes Cate Blanchett, Justin Bieber and Dolly Parton and moderators including Stacey Abrams and Martha Raddatz. The event was originally scheduled to take place in mid-March at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
The festival will be available to view by Citi cardmembers and Paley members beginning August 7, with panels available to the public August 10. All will be hosted on the Paley Center’s YouTube channel. Citi is an official sponsor of the event.
The lineup announced today featured changes from the one originally unveiled in January. Remaining are Netflix’s Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings and Ozark, Starz’s Outlander and Pop TV’s One Day at a Time and Schitt’s Creek. They are joined by 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 and Netflix’s Queer Eye.
Gone from the original schedule with the end of the 2019-20 TV season disrupted include panels for ABC’s Modern Family, CBS’ NCIS 400th episode celebration, Amazon Prime Video’s The Boys, CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Picard, HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, Netflix’s Dead to Me and Disney+’s The Mandalorian.
The Schitt’s Creek panel reflecting on the comedy’s sixth and final season will be available exclusively for Citi cardmembers and Paley Center members.
“PaleyFest LA has been the premier television festival in the country for more than 35 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 and 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.
