Yahoo! TV to host festival panels
Panels and other events hailing from the newly renamed Paley Center for Media are now available online, on demand, at Yahoo TV.
Over the next few months, up to 300 clips from past Paley events will be viewable, including the org’s most prominent event, the Paley Festival held every year at the Directors Guild of America. The most recent Paley fest included a behind-the-scenes look at “Heroes,” “Ugly Betty” and “Nip/Tuck” with the cast and exec producers.
“Our partnership with Yahoo TV means that we can share our expertise and ability to convene the top names in the industry with media enthusiasts and consumers far beyond those who walk through our doors,” said PCM president and CEO Pat Mitchell.
Since the name change last month from the Museum of Television and Radio, the Paley Center has announced it will increase the numbers of panels at both its Beverly Hills and New York locations.
In addition, the subject matter to be discussed at each has branched out far beyond the realm of TV and radio. Last month, Mitchell discussed the impact media has on foreign policy with two former secretaries of state: Warren Christopher and Madeleine Albright.
