One of my fave television shows, “Big Bang Theory”, appeared on the stage of the Paley Center for Media’s 33rd Annual PaleyFest Los Angeles.
This is one of the few events where the public can express themselves and have a closer look at the television stars. The Paley Center names the event, “Where the fans get their fix.” You can join the fun along with 2,000 fans for screenings, behind the scenes convos, and question & answers. This is a unique opportunity to
Watch their calendar throughout the year when the Paley Center hosts their events, discussions, journalists and world leaders on important issues. They celebrate excellence in drama, comedy, and documentary film with a range of events that examine the creative process behind great entertainment.
Called the premier television festival in the country, the PaleyFest is a must-attend pop cultural event produced by The Paley Center for Media that brings you together with the talent behind your favorite TV shows. Enjoy a screening of an episode or highlights of the featured program, followed by a panel discussion with your favorite stars live onstage, capped off by a Q & A with the audience. Named for William S. Paley, founder of CBS and The Paley Center for Media, proceeds from the event support the nonprofit Paley Center.
The Paley Center for Media has an international collection of over 160,000 programs covering almost 100 years of television and radio history, including news, public affairs programs and documentaries, performing arts programs, children’s programming, sports, comedy and variety shows, and commercial advertising. Programming from over seventy countries is represented in the collection. “Lost” radio and television programs recovered by The Paley Center for Media and preserved in the collection include Super Bowl III, a Rat Pack benefit variety show, and James Dean performances.
The Paley Center for Media, with locations in New York and Los Angeles, leads the discussion about the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, radio, and emerging platforms for the professional community and media-interested public. Drawing upon its curatorial expertise, an international collection, and close relationships with the leaders of the media community, the Paley Center examines the intersections between media and society. The general public can access the collection and participate in programs that explore and celebrate the creativity, the innovations, the personalities, and the leaders who are shaping media. Through the global programs of its Media Council and International Council, the Paley Center also serves as a neutral setting where media professionals can engage in discussion and debate about the evolving media landscape. Previously known as The Museum of Television & Radio, the Paley Center was founded in 1975 by William S. Paley, a pioneering innovator in the industry.
