The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment continues its 50th Anniversary Campaign with New York’s ultimate TV fan festival, PaleyFest: Made in NY. After it debuted in 2013, it became an instant hit and this year, two weeks are needed for the casts and creative teams from today’s hottest television shows. From October 6 to 19th at the Paley Center for Media in New York City, attendees will be able to see premiere screenings and participate in interactive panels.
As of right now, Emmy Award-winning series Homeland from Showtime and Fox 21 Television Studios, critically acclaimed series The Daily Show with Trevor Noah from Comedy Central, and fan-favorite Elementary from CBS are among the TV hits included in the star-studded line-up of events, with more shows and talent to be announced at a later date.
This event is perfect if you are already in town for New York City Comic Con, which is happening around the same time.
As part of PaleyImpact, the Paley Center and The Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment will explore recent portrayals of mental illness on television, with actors, writers, advocates, and mental health experts.
As part of the Verizon Innovative Learning initiative, The Verizon Foundation will support an education program: From STEM to Screen: Inspiring Tomorrow’s Creators. This early-career networking event will connect local students with entertainment professionals to address why STEM skills are key to some of entertainment’s most exciting careers.
As official media sponsor of PaleyFest, Hulu will be the exclusive streaming home to a selections of clips and the full-length discussions throughout the festival. Subscribers can view footage from the event by visiting hulu.com/paleyfest.
