Director, writer and producer Judd Apatow will be honored with media institution Paley Center for Media’s second-annual Paleyfest icon award.

The Paley Center has enjoyed a long and fantastic history with Judd Apatow, who currently reigns as one of the most sought-after innovators in all media,” said Paley Center for Media president and CEO Pat Mitchell.

Apatow, whose TV success includes HBO’s “Girls” and cult hits “Freaks and Geeks,” “The Ben Stiller Show” and “Undeclared,” will be feted on March 10 at the Center’s Beverly Hills location. This will also serve as the kickoff event for this year’s PaleyFest, which is being held March 13-28 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland.

    Yes nothing but good old clean family entertainment that celebrates the best – he has given us great characters that society should admire and the rest of the world loves America us for exporting: they truly uplift all of humanity. When the world looks to the USA it is the works of Apatow they credit with really inspiring the planet. We must celebrate this. No sexist, foul mouthed, depraved degradation of mankind here – he only reflects the best of all of those in Hollywood. When is he doing the story of Sodom and Gomorrah – I hear he has retitled – Me and My daughters do Hollywood.
