For Paley Center members, tomorrow is an historic day. Tickets for the first-ever New York edition of the Paley Center’s ongoing west coast PaleyFest go on sale to card-carrying supporters, two days ahead of tickets being opened up to the general public.
Among the shows to be paneled and celebrated at PaleyFest: Made in NY October 2-6 are Boardwalk Empire, Elementary and Orange is the New Black. From today’s announcement:
“Bringing PaleyFest to New York City after 30 incredibly successful years in LA is a dream realized for the Paley Center,” said Pat Mitchell, president & CEO of The Paley Center for Media.
“New York City has truly become a TV town in recent years with more prime time episodic series filming on our streets than ever before,” said Katherine Oliver, commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment. “Working with the Paley Center to celebrate the ‘Made in NY’ series that call New York City home is the perfect way to kick off a season of new dramas and comedies and highlight the thousands of New Yorkers who make their living working in the local film and television industry.”
The NYC panel conversations will be live streamed as well and fans are being invited, per usual, to submit their suggested questions via Twitter using the hashtag #PaleyFest.[Photo of PaleyFest LA Community panel courtesy: Paley Center]
