PaleyFest NY 2018 has released its official session schedule for the annual two-week celebration of the television series format. This year's selection includes popular scripted series such as The Walking Dead, Outlander, and The Good Fight; as well as "reality" competition series Shark Tank and Top Chef. Doctor Who's David Tennant will also be holding court for one session, updating fans on Amazon's Good Omens series adaptation.

"The PaleyFest 2018 lineup is a testament to why PaleyFest NY is the premier television festival of the fall. We're proud to feature this incredible schedule of events that represent the best of television across all genres."
