For diehard television viewers in New York who aren’t satisfied seeing their favorite shows in their living rooms, and who want to share some in-person time with the casts and creators of these programs, the Paley Center for Media will soon offer some relief.
On Tuesday, the Paley Center said that in October it will introduce a New York incarnation of its annual PaleyFest, focusing on shows and talent based here. This festival, called PaleyFest: Made in NY and presented in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, will run from Oct. 2 through 6 at the Paley Center for Media, at 25 West 52nd Street.
Though a full lineup of programming was not immediately announced, the Paley Center said in a news release that events will include panels with actors and creators from “Orange Is the New Black,” “Elementary,” “The Americans,” “The Outs” and “Boardwalk Empire.”
Tickets for the New York festival will go on sale to Paley Center members ($20) on Wednesday and to the general public ($30) on Friday.
