The Paley Center for Media's PaleyFest has a long-standing tradition of highlighting some of the best and brightest on broadcasting, and the 2019 Los Angeles edition looks to build upon that history of quality. Running from March 15-24 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, PaleyFest LA 2019 has announced this year's impressive line-up–which ranges from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Walking Dead to Stephen Colbert, This Is Us, and RuPaul's Drag Race.
"We're thrilled to announce this incredible lineup of programs. We're so proud that our lineup reflects the diversity of the television viewing experience—from history-making programs highlighting the LGBTQ+ community, to Emmy Award-winning comedies and dramas with strong female characters, action-packed adventure series, and a conversation with one of the sharpest voices on late-night TV. This year's selections epitomize why PaleyFest LA is the premier television festival."
– Maureen J. Reidy, President & CEO, Paley Center
