PaleyFest 2010 Is Upon Us

I’m a little late in getting this post up, considering the 27th Annual William S. Paley Television Festival (PaleyFest) has already started. You’ve only missed three events, Modern Family and Lost, which were both fantastic and NCIS, which I didn’t attend. There are 10 nights left highlighting such acclaimed shows as Breaking Bad and Dexter. The only one aside from Lost that is sold-out so far is Glee.

This is the 9th year I’ve attended PaleyFest, the ever-changing and growing celebration of television programming and its creation. It is hands-down one of my favorite annual L.A. events. For the past two years, it was held in the Cinerama Dome at the ArcLight Hollywood, a much bigger venue than the previous theater at the Directors Guild. As the festival continues to grow, it has once again moved and is being held at The Saban Theatre (formerly The Wilshire Theatre) in Beverly Hills, which can hold 1900 people.

The full programming schedule can be found here. Ticket prices are tiered based on seating section and Paley Center membership status. Seats are not assigned, just the section. Check for more information on ticket availability for the remaining shows on this site.

The Saban Theatre is located at 8440 Wilshire Blvd. Beverly Hills, 90211. The surrounding neighborhoods all have permit street parking, so be prepared to pay $10 to park in one of two designated lots.

Let us know if you plan to attend any of the events. I’ll report back on my experience at the end of the fest.

    Erm, or you can take the Metro 20 or 720 bus down Wilshire, or the buses that go down La Cienega or San Vicente…

  2. Thanks Evan. How L.A. of me to not even think of the public transit option. I do take it myself from time to time, but am guilty of mostly traveling around in my car.

    Yes, Kevin, the Caprica panel was great. Seth Green was surprisingly one of the best moderators I’ve seen at a panel of this sort.

    Burns! Thank you too! I think I was supposed to mention the Goldstar thing and forgot.

  3. The “Community” panel was hilarious! Probably the best I’ve ever seen. Would’ve been even better if the entire cast had been able to attend.
