PaleyFest, everyone’s favorite annual television festival, has announced its 2014 lineup, and let me tell you – it’s pretty awesome. Among other exciting panels are the Lost tenth anniversary special and a farewell to How I Met Your Mother. Additional highlights include Community’s record-setting fifth time appearing, and a dual panel for The Vampire Diaries and its spinoff series, The Originals.
President and CEO of the Paley Center for Media Pat Mitchell had this to say of the exciting event:
“With this amazing mix of new shows, returning favorites, and two high-profile cast reunions, PaleyFest 2014 will be a must-attend event for TV fans who attend every year from all over the world…The caliber of talent participating in PaleyFest this year is absolutely unrivaled in the industry and we hope fans will not only have a great time interacting with the casts and creators, but will also learn about how their favorite shows get made.”
As for the celebration’s Icon Award, which was previously given to Ryan Murphy, the recipient has yet to be announced. Individual tickets for PaleyFest 2014 will go on sale for Paley Center supporting members on the 16th of January, general members on the 17th, and the general public on the 19th.
