What to Know
Paley Center for Media
Possessing some magical power, one that allows you to step inside your television and into the world of the characters seen on the screen?
Still in the R&D phase, or so we've heard, though surely, with the rate of technological wonders, that feature will go on display at a big electronics convention in the very near future.
But being able to take a seat as actors and showrunners talk, in person, about how a series came together? Even before the show has officially aired?
There's no magic to that, although the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews do feel a bit enchanting.
That's because the TV-loving organization invites some of the creamiest of the new crop over to the Paley Center for Media, in Beverly Hills, to chat about what audiences can expect, what a just-debuting show is about, and some other get-to-know-us details.
It's as essential to the fall TV season as word-of-mouth recommendations, magazine covers, major interviews, talk show stop-bys, and all of the other ways that a fresh series makes itself known.
And that stars show up? Such a bonus.
The 2019 PaleyFest Fall TV Previews will run from Sept. 5 through 15, with several shows up on the Q&A stage.
"Perfect Harmony," from NBC, will be in the house on Sept. 5 with both a screening and chitchat with the stars. Bradley Whitford is scheduled to attend, as is Anna Camp.
Other shows getting the Paley-style love? "Wu-Tang: An American Saga" from Hulu and "mixed-ish" from ABC will have their big preview moments, as will the animated "Disenchantment" from Netflix.
Tickets to the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews go on sale to the general public at 9 a.m. on Aug. 9, but Citi cardmembers and Paley Center for Media individual members can purchase their entries earlier (Aug. 6 and 8, respectively).
Paley Center Patron and Supporting members can secure their admissions on Aug. 6.
All of the details on tickets, panels, who is expected to appear, and what TV fans can expect can be found at the Paley Center for Media's online info hub.
Stepping into your television?
Not yet possible, but getting to Beverly Hills, over eleven entertaining days in September, is real, and really fun, if you dig checking out what's new in televised stories.
