“PaleyFest LA has been the premier television festival in the country for more than thirty-five years, and, we’re so pleased to bring this best-in-class festival to millions of fans virtually for the first time through our Paley YouTube channel,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We look forward to presenting this incredible lineup of programs featuring the shows that make us laugh, take us into a world of mystery, comfort us, and shine a light on pressing social issues. We’re thrilled to welcome back Citi as the official card of PaleyFest and we couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
“Because the two of us are pretty sick of looking at each other, we are thrilled with the invitation to jump online and talk to other people about comedy. Many thanks to PaleyFest for the opportunity,” said Amy Sherman-Palladino, Creator & Executive Producer and Daniel Palladino, Executive Producer, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
“It is a tremendous honor to be part of PaleyFest LA 2020. In times of uncertainty, we often look to the support of our families and communities. The global community – or family – of Outlander fans has been steadfast in their support over the years. Though we may not be able to do so in person, we look forward to being able to offer our thanks virtually, and are immensely grateful to The Paley Center for the privilege of participating,” said Outlander Executive Producer Matthew B. Roberts.
“We couldn’t be happier. The list of shows that have been included in PaleyFest is like a laundry list of our favorite series ever. So, to look back on Ozark season three as part of this group is truly an honor,” said Ozark executive producer Chris Mundy.
PaleyFest supports the Paley Center’s many education initiatives including education workshops serving 10,000 youth annually, the Paley Impact series which features programs centered around today’s most pressing social issues and the role of media in our society, and the continued preservation of the Paley Archive, featuring 160,000 historically significant television and radio programs.
