TV fest to host Apatow evening, 'Freaks & Geeks' reunion
Jimmy Fallon and the casts of “Community” and “White Collar” are among those set to be feted at the upcoming William S. Paley Television Festival.
The full two-week fest lineup — set for March 4-17 at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills — is heavy on shows currently on the air. An evening dedicated to the Judd Apatow series “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared” is the only program that will take a look back.
Other series receiving the Paleyfest treatment that had not been previously announced include “Hot in Cleveland” and the fest closer, “Raising Hope.” Shows already announced are “True Blood,” “Supernatural,” “American Idol” and “The Walking Dead,” which opens the fest.
Ticket packages go on sale today, while individual ducats go on sale Friday to Paley Center members only. The general public can buy seats Sunday.
Paleyfest moved to the Saban last year following a turn at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood.
