We can't imagine how very challenging it is to round up the cast and the creatives for a panel devoted to hit show. And then do it like a dozen times over, year after year. And actually have the big names really show up.
But that's part of putting together PaleyFest, the annual television-loving panel-thon that has fans clamoring for tickets and major stars chatting with those fans who clamored for tickets. It's a springtime thing, of course, but the show announcements always come a few months ahead of the festival.
Oh, and look at this: We're now a few months ahead of the festival. Meaning the PaleyFest announcements started rolling out on Wednesday, Dec. 15. One headline: AMC hit "The Walking Dead" will get a night (hopefully no one in the audience will have to take on any zombies during the Q&A). And remembered-and-loved "Freaks and Geeks" will get the sunshine, along with the Apatowian "Undeclared."
You can find more shows and get your ticket updates at the Paley Center site and on Twitter. PaleyFest 2011 runs from March 4-18 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills.
