Tag: PaleyFest (1-10 of 23)
The Mindy Project is back next week! I repeat: The Mindy Project is back next week!
We’ve been patiently waiting for our Shulman & Associates fix since January, but enough is enough. After the midseason finale fireworks — as Mindy flew back to New York to get Cliff back, Danny grabbed her for a passionate mile-high make-out sesh — it’s a wonder we haven’t combusted from the anticipation. To help you hold out one more week, the Mindy cast hit PaleyFest at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Tuesday night for a revealing and laugh-filled panel.
The cast and executive producers of Fox’s hit supernatural series Sleepy Hollow hit the stage at Los Angeles’s Dolby Theater for their first PaleyFest appearance on Tuesday night. Check out five of the most interesting things we learned from the panel at PaleyFest below:
Season 2 will bring new faces and a new authority figure
Brace yourselves for season 2, Sleepy Heads — from the sounds of the Sleepy Hollow panel, this upcoming season will showcase a slew of both familiar and unfamiliar faces. Showrunners promised that fans would be introduced to new characters both of the human and supernatural variety. One of them is a new authority figure who will become the man in charge now that Captain Irving (Orlando Jones) is serving time behind bars. “This person is gonna be very’‘not on your side, pal!'” promises executive producer Mark Goffman.
Comedic screenwriter, director, and producer Judd Apatow will be this year’s recipient of the Paley Center for Media’s 2014 Icon Award. Apatow, beloved for his cult-hit TV classics like Freaks & Geeks, will receive the award on March 10 when PaleyFest kicks off. Apatow will be the second recipient of the award, following in the footsteps of Glee‘s Ryan Murphy, who received the award last year.
PaleyFest runs from March 13-28 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. This year’s lineup includes Veronica Mars, Orange Is the New Black, How I Met Your Mother, Pretty Little Liars, Parks and Recreation, Sleepy Hollow, Mad Men, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Masters of Sex, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, Community, American Horror Story: Coven, Veep, The Mindy Project, and a special panel honoring the 10th anniversary of Lost.
The list of cast members attending this year’s PaleyFest is here, and it’s full of fan favorites. Mindy Kaling and Chris Messina will be there to (hopefully) talk about where their on-screen romance is going, Josh Holloway and Henry Ian Cusick will be among the actors appearing on the 10-year Lost reunion panel, and ABC Family fans should be happy to hear that three out of four Pretty Little Liars will be spilling secrets at their show’s panel.
Tickets for the individual panels can be purchased here, but take a look at the entire list of who’s speaking below first:
We already told you Veronica Mars would kick off PaleyFest 2014, the Paley Center for Media’s TV fan festival. Now, the whole schedule has been released — and if you’re still not over Lost, you’re going to want to book some tickets to Los Angeles, stat.
In addition to a 10-year reunion panel for the iconic drama, the festival will also feature panels from How I Met Your Mother, The Vampire Diaries, and Parks and Recreation (a group that is, no surprise, always hilarious at the festival).
“With this amazing mix of new shows, returning favorites, and two high-profile cast reunions, PaleyFest 2014 will be a must-attend event for TV fans who attend every year from all over the world,” said Pat Mitchell, the president and CEO of The Paley Center for Media, in a release. “The caliber of talent participating in PaleyFest this year is absolutely unrivaled in the industry and we hope fans will not only have a great time interacting with the casts and creators, but will also learn about how their favorite shows get made.”

PaleyFest 2014 will be full of marshmallows this year.
No, not literally. But the annual TV conference will kick off its March 13-28 schedule with a panel reuniting the cast of Veronica Mars. The cast, including titular Kristen Bell, will surely have lots to tease: The Kickstarter-funded movie continuation of the tale will be released the following day. Other panels announced so far at the annual festival include American Horror Story: Coven and Pretty Little Liars. The full lineup will be announced Jan. 8.
But a reunion panel isn’t the only good news for Veronica Mars fans today. Pivot announced that it will begin airing reruns of the show, as well as repeats of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, in a new block featuring back-to-back episodes Mondays through Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET beginning Jan. 13, 2014.

Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, and Raj Koothrappali may not be doctors of the medical sort, but they still know how to serve up a heaping dosage of best medicine (a.k.a. laughs — lots of them) to a sold-out audience. At least, that’s what their real-life counterparts — along with other cast members and writer-producers of The Big Bang Theory — did Wednesday evening for the CBS comedy’s PaleyFest panel in Beverly Hills’ Saban Theatre.
The event, presented by the Paley Center for Media, was pretty short on spoilers. The production schedule is currently not that far ahead of viewers, who will get to see the 19th episode of season 6 tonight, but there were plenty of entertaining and funny behind-the-scenes stories and playful moments among the talent on the panel, which was moderated by NCIS actress Pauley Perrette.

Nick and Jess kissed over a month ago, or, in television time, four episodes ago. But don’t worry… we found out Monday night at the New Girl PaleyFest panel that it’s still the thing that everyone wants to talk about. Both the discussion and the sneak peek of next week’s new episode, “Quick Hardening Caulk,” proved that the kiss was anything but old news.
Even though conversation kept coming back to The Kiss — and what it meant, and what it will mean, and how long they were planning it — the cast and producers did touch on a few other subjects, including Cece’s sudden engagement, the group’s upcoming trip to Chicago, and the mystery behind Schmidt’s first name. The energy between the cast and producers was infectious, and you almost wished that the series creator Elizabeth Meriwether could give herself a role on the show too. Jake Johnson even sang the theme song for the audience, after Zooey Deschanel declined.

When the cast of Nashville took the stage at PaleyFest 2013, they weren’t quite prepared to give away too much information about the show’s will-they-or-won’t-they couples Deacon and Rayna (not to mention Gunnar and Scarlett). However, that didn’t stop them from revealing some other tidbits. Below, in no particular order, 10 things we learned from the ridiculously attractive (and talented) cast. READ FULL STORY
Arrow fans at PaleyFest got quite a show on Saturday night. Though the audience didn’t get to see an entire upcoming episode, the sizzle reel proved enticing enough, providing a number of big revelations (read: spoilers).
The most shocking reveal happened during a conversation between The Huntress and Detective Lance, but you’ll have to wait until the episode airs to find out what it is… or check back in with Spoiler Room.
Unlike many of the other panels here, there were only four actors from the show on hand, and much of the conversation was dominated by the three producers, but the audience didn’t seem to mind. Moderated by DC Comics’ Geoff Johns (who has also written for the CW series), the conversation was an in-depth look at the world of comics and the inspirations drawn for Arrow. One audience member even stood up to ask if Stephen Amell was ready for the commitment required to star in a genre show. He said he’s trying, and often looks to fellow cast mate and genre show veteran John Barrowman (who was not in attendance) for guidance.

Fans of The Mindy Project were treated to a lively Q&A with some of the core members of the cast and producing staff, and a chance to see “Mindy’s Birthday” (airing March 19), Friday in Los Angeles at the PaleyFest.
Fresh off the news that The Mindy Project would be returning to Fox for a second season, the cast seemed grateful and at ease, and spent the majority of the panel doing their Chris Messina impressions. Show creator Mindy Kaling was sweet, gracious and self-deprecating, and admitted that she loves to look at Messina and that she was excited to play a character with style and a disposable income.
The real star of the panel, though, was Ike Barinholtz, who writes for the show and plays male nurse Morgan Tookers. Funny, charming, and larger than life, he always had a joke or a lively anecdote at the ready. (He also does a killer Alan Arkin impression.) The only time Barinholtz paused was when Kaling kissed him, after he teased her that maybe if he talked like Messina, she’d be interested in him.

Last night, the minds and bodies behind the great Braverman clan took to the stage at PaleyFest to discuss everything from a potential season five to the reason why Mark and Sarah will never work (Hint: Jason Ritter is moving to a new show, where he’s dating Lauren Graham’s one-time TV daughter, Alexis Bledel).
Parenthood actors Craig T. Nelson, Max Burkholder, Miles Heizer, Mae Whitman, Sam Jaeger, Erika Christensen, Joy Bryant, Dax Shepard, Lauren Graham, Jason Ritter, Monica Potter, and Peter Krause joined executive producer Jason Katims for an hour-long conversation about the story lines that made us cry our eyes out for all of season four.
