Paleyfest Announces Its Panelists

This year marks the 30th Annual Paleyfest: The William S. Paley Television Festival, a sort of mini-convention held by The Paley Center over a two week period. It’s a place for fans to hear the creative teams behind their favorite shows talk a bit about what goes into the making of the programs, and give some behind the scenes scoop on what’s coming up on each program. So like Comic Con, only you don’t have to get there 24 hours before to get a good seat.
