Fall is fast approaching and tickets will go on sale for the upcoming 12th Annual PaleyFest Fall TV Previews from September 6 – 16th in Beverly Hills. PaleyFest Fall TV Previews New York City fans will be able to enjoy free screenings from September 7 – 9th. This year the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews will have screenings, cast and creatives from ABC, CBS, the CW, Fox, History, Hulu, Lifetime, NBC, Netflix and Telemundo!

I’m a HUGE TV Fan so I always look forward to the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview. Over the years it’s given me a chance to ‘meet’ TV shows that I hadn’t planned to watch but after seeing the first first episode and hearing the cast/creators talk I am willing to give them a ‘test watch’ or sometimes an unexpected fan (I’m looking at YOU the CW Dynasty!). This year they have Netflix’s Bojack a animated series that is really good and has characters that I see reflected in myself despite not being a talking horse, dog or cat! As far as the new shows I’m curious about the Charmed (the CW) reboot with Latina flavor and the Rookie (ABC) since I have a weakness for police dramadies but am willing to give all the shows the networks selected to highlight a chance but not Last Man Standing (Fox) didn’t like it on ABC so am sure I won’t like the continuation with move to the new network.

“Every September television fans know PaleyFest Fall TV Previews is the place to be for a first look at the most buzz-worthy new shows of the fall TV season, and engaging conversation and insight from the cast and creative teams behind them,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re honored to present this stellar lineup of new shows as well as several Emmy-nominated returning fan favorites.

I know I’m not the only one excited about the 2015 PaleyFest LA in March! It’s an opportunity to get up close and personal with some of your favorite shows. This year has me gobsmacked with just about every show I watch (exception Girls, Homeland, American Horror Story and casual watcher of Modern Family and Outlander is on my ‘to watch list’ ) . If you want to see the stars and producers of your favorite shows I recommend becoming a member of the Paley Center so that you can pre-purchase your tickets or you WILL miss out!

What show do you want to see?? What question should I ask on the red carpet? You KNOW I have to talk to Shonda! Ask how Girls narrow NYC viewpoint is comedy gold for HBO! How the writers got the perfect mix of Telenova and Comedy that’s broken the mold for CW! The new season of Homeland has found it’s footing but why the detour??? I plan to cause some TROUBLE at Paleyfest this year!

NBC is going back to 2006 with their hit science fiction drama Heroes coming back for a mini-series in 2015.  Is NBC adding to its geek program and testing the waters with a fan favorite?

All the other networks have been garnering major success with science fiction shows from CW (which I call the new Sci Fi teen network) to ABC using their own fairy tale archives to reboot fantasy on the small screen.   But NBC was the network that I grew up watching with science fiction action and comedies that kept me tuning in every week.  I may not be the perfect person pondering this new extension of (what I’m sure they are hoping will be their own Star Trek) since I never found Heroes very appealing.  I think the tagline ‘Save the Cheerleader’ left me super cold because of my being a major nerd wallflower in high school so unpopular I didn’t even get teased (totally invisible).   I had friends who LOVED the show even those who had never given a thought to any of the Star Trek series, seen Blakes 7 and thought Doctor Who was a medical drama (the horror).  Since the show  is coming back I’ll have to watch old episodes to see if I want to jump on the heroes train since I have a suspicion it will be one wild ride especially with NBC’s plans to have a digital series.  I’ve watched a couple of their online series and they are always a great way to enrich the broadcasts.

So in case you may not realize it I’m a total geek and proud of it!  As a geek I fell in love with a show last season called Grimm.   You may not have seen it (if you did you missed a GREAT first season) but fear not you can watch episodes on line (Grimm) at NBC.com and on DVD.  Now in case you want MY synopsis of this great drama sprinkled with dark fairy dust.  It starts with a police detective in Portland, OR named Nick Burkhardt who’s living the American dream.  A gorgeous home, pretty girlfriend, best friend/detective partner and a career that is leading him up the ladder but one night his beloved aunt appears back in his life and she’s brought a trailer full of trouble with her!  He learns that he’s a Grimm from out of the old dark fairy tales and that all the things that go bump in the night have claws all the better to rend and tear human flesh.  As the season progresses you get to know his friends, his enemies and all the creatures who share the world with us from dragons to man eating spiders to … well the big bad wolf!  Not all of them are are bad and some turn out to be his friends and allies in protecting the innocent.

Now the new season is starting on Monday, August 13th after the final Olympic Game on NBC and I want to tell you what I’ve learned over the summer about the show from cast and creators who I was very excited to interview at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con.  One of the coolest things I saw was the Portland immersion experience that was set up.  You got to explore the dark, moody and foggy forest of Portland that than led you down the path (where was my Red Hood?) to Nick’s most secret possession.  The airbus trailer his aunt left him with all the passed down knowledge of his Grimm ancestors.  Luck you get to see it through my eyes since I took video and photos of the tour just for those who weren’t able to make it to San Diego this year and it can be found on cherrylosangeles @youtube tour of the Grimm Trailer.

My interview with the cast of Grimm will give major insight into the upcoming season as well as just the sheer fun of working on such a great show!  I spoke with a few of the cast members who were just as excited about the new season as all the fans!

Silas Weir Mitchell who plays Monroe, a reformed Blutbat, who is Nick’s reluctant informant.

Bitsie Tulloch plays Juliette Silverton, Nick’s (David Giuntoli) loyal girlfriend, who is wary of his recent forays into the Grimm world.

Sasha Roiz plays Captain Renard, Nick’s politically adept superior officer and a descendant of a powerful line of Grimm royalty.

Sean Hayes and David Greenwalt are the executive producers on NBC’s acclaimed drama series “Grimm.”

Norberto Barba, Director is the executive producer and director on NBC’s acclaimed drama series “Grimm.”
