Paley Center Reveals First Slate of L.A. Events Without a Museum (Exclusive)

Even as the Paley Center vacates its Beverly Hills museum, the org is still planning a full slate of L.A.-based events in the first half of 2020. As Variety previously reported, the Paley Center will no longer have a physical location on the west coast, but instead will hold events at a variety of locations — including the Directors Guild of America and the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Following up on news that its digital archives will now be housed at the Beverly Hills Public Library, the Paley Center is set to announce several Los Angeles-area panels, screenings and discussions open to the public in he next few months. They include events related to series “A Million Little Things,” “Little America” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” as well as talks with Gina Rodriguez and Brian Robbins.

“Year after year the Paley Center presents programs that are both entertaining and educational, and we look forward to welcoming television fans and members of the entertainment industry to these exciting and diverse events,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President and CEO.

These events are part of the Paley Center’s PaleyLive LA and Paley Media Council, and are in addition to the previously announced PaleyFest, which takes place in March at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and includes panels for “Modern Family,” “One Day at a Time,” “Star Trek: Picard,” “Outlander,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Schitt’s Creek” and “The Mandalorian,” among others.
