PaleyFest Moves to Hollywood, Kicks Off With ‘Veronica Mars’ Reunion

PaleyFest is heading to a new home: The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, the same host venue that hosts the Academy Awards.

Previously, PaleyFest, the annual two-week television festival, was held at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. It’s set to run March 13-28, 2014.

“Moving PaleyFest to the landmark Dolby Theatre is an extraordinary testament to the festival’s growth over the years,” said Pat Mitchell, president and CEO of The Paley Center for Media, in a statement. “Hosting PaleyFest at the prestigious home of the Academy Awards is also an acknowledgement of the caliber of programs we showcase and of the wonderful support we’ve received from our network and studio partners, sponsors and the amazing creative talents Paleyfest celebrates year after year.”

Along with the new digs, the fest has announced its first three honorees. One of them, “Veronica Mars,” will open PaleyFest March 13 with a cast reunion, just one day before the “Veronica Mars” movie premieres nationwide.

Confab will close with a presentation of another honoree, “American Horror Story: Coven.” The other announced to be feted is “Pretty Little Liars.”

The full Paleyfest lineup will be announced Jan. 8.
