According to Comic Book.com on Feb 10, PaleyFest will be breaking ground by streaming panels for AMC's original series "The Walking Dead" and "The Big Bang Theory" to around 525 theaters across the nation.
Pat Mitchell, Paley Center for Media President and CEO, stated, "“For the first time, fans will be able to join in the excitement as we bring the ultimate TV fan festival experience to theaters across the country". So now, fans from all over can gather, network, and socialize at these venues nationwide. This is in celebration of Paley Fest's 30 year anniversary
The nation wide events are a prerecorded version of the one aired in Beverly Hills, Ca. and will feature Chris Hardwick as the panel moderator. "Paley Fest Featuring The Walking Dead" will rerun in theaters March 7 at 8 p.m. local time and will host an ensemble of the cast and executive producers of the show. Later, on March 13, a live feed of "PaleyFest Featuring The Big Bang Theory" will air at 8 p.m. EST. Fans nationwide will be allowed to "tweet" questions to celebrities and crew of "The Big Bang Theory" in a live and uncensored question and answer session.
“PaleyFest is the ultimate TV fan festival that until now, only fans lucky enough to score tickets to the L.A. event could enjoy,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Thanks to the Paley Center, now all fans of these popular TV shows can enjoy the festival from their local movie theater as the cast of each show takes part in a live, uncensored and no-holds-barred audience Q&A.”
