Couldn't make it in person to any of the PaleyFest events this week? You're in luck because they're all streaming live and archived online. The Wire cast reunion hits at 7:30pm EST tonight, and meanwhile you can already watch the ones with The Walking Dead, Bob's Burgers, Law & Order SVU, Archer, Modern Family and others.
Omar comin'...Bunk too
In the words of Senator Clay Davis, well sheeeiiiit! The cast and creators of The Wire are reuniting for a retrospective/Q&A for the 2014 Paleyfest on October 16 at The Paley Center for Media in NYC. In attendance will be creator David Simon, producer Nina Noble, and cast members Wendell Pierce (Bunk), Sonja Sohn (Greggs), Michael Kenneth Williams (Omar), Seth Gilliam (Carter), Jim True-Frost (Prez), John Doman (Rawls), Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (D'Angelo Barksdale), and Jamie Hector (Marlo). There will also be a special video introduction by Dominick West (McNulty) and the panel will be moderated by popular TV critic Alan Sepinwall. Tickets go on sale Tuesday (10/7) at 10 AM.
This year's Paleyfest goes from October 11 - 19 and also has panels with cast/creators of shows Hannibal (10/18), Law & Order SVU (10/13), The Walking Dead (10/11), Gotham (10/18), Archer (10/12), Bob's Burgers (10/15), and more. Tickets are on sale, and full 2015 Paleyfest lineup below...
A Ben Stiller Show reunion highlights a new round of additions to the New York Comedy Festival which, as discussed before, is happening November 7 - 11. Tickets to this and other events will go on sale today (9/24) at noon.
A critical hit but ratings failure, The Ben Stiller Show got its start on MTV in 1990 and then moved to FOX for a season before being cancelled. In retrospect, it's a who's who of comedy talent, giving early breaks to Bob Odenkirk, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Dick and writer Judd Apatow, all of whom will be in attendance at the event which happens November 10 at the Paley Center (tickets), along with Jeff Kahn, and Rob Cohen. No sign of castmember David Cross though. A couple classic Ben Stiller Show clips are below.
Other new additions to the NYCF include Denis Leary discussing his new kids Christmas book for adults Merry F***in' Christmas (based on his song) on 11/9 at the Paley Center; a live version of Bravo TV's Celebrity Autobiography with Janeane Garofalo, Rachel Dratch, Mario Cantone and more on November 8 at Stage 72. Full fest schedule is here.
