An Evening with Speechless
Tuesday, May 9 at 7:00 pm
I’m a huge fan of ABC Studios, and Twentieth Century Fox Television’s Speechless it’s a show that represents the challenge of a family struggling to live in a neighborhood to offer the best to their kids. The portrayal of JJ DiMeo by Micah Fowler that shows a HS kid living his life and not allowing anyone to stand in front of his wheels! Out of the entire family I must admit I want to hang with JJ and not just to cut in line <guffaw>. The Paley Center will host Minnie Driver (Maya DiMeo); John Ross Bowie (Jimmy DiMeo); Mason Cook (Ray DiMeo); Micah Fowler (JJ DiMeo); Kyla Kenedy(Dylan DiMeo); Cedric Yarbrough (Kenneth); Scott Silveri, Creator & Executive Producer; Melvin Mar, Executive Producer; and Jake Kasdan, Executive Producer; for a premiere screening and conversation.

I’m ready for a new adventure with Prison Break and the new nine part event series with original series stars reuniting for an all-new adventure that has the thrills and cliff-hangers of the Golden Globe Nominated original series when it aired on FOX (2005-2009).

Dirty Dancing: The New ABC Musical Event
Premiere Screening & Conversation
Thursday, May 18 at 6:30 pm
No fan of the 1987 movie classic can miss the 30th anniversary musical premiering this year on ABC! Paley Center is offering a first look AND talk with the talent and team behind the upcoming three hour filmed musical event that will be produced by Lionsgate and Allison Shearmur Productions. We get to see the romance of Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman and Johnny Castle during a summer vacation in the Catskills that I think will have all of us singing the songs from the original movie and era. Those lucky enough to score tickets to the premier screening will have a chance to hear from Abigail Breslin, Bruce Greenwood, Nicole Scherzinger, Colt Prattes, and Katey Sagal just before the ABC Television Network TV premiere on May 24. So don’t put baby back in the corner instead have a Dirty Dancing Party at PaleyLive: Los Angeles!

Celebrate National Coming Out Day with the cast and creators of the ABC comedy The Real O’Neals on October 11th with the PaleyLive LA Event. I have to say that I LOVE this series because I grew up as a good Catholic girl in the midwest and totally get this series. From the ‘I’m more Catholic than you’ rivalry between the mothers to everyone being ‘too polite’ so gossip is always said in a ‘I’m only concerned’.
When I learned of the series coming to ABC I m
ust admit I thought it would be lots of mean Catholic jokes that would offend my lapsed soul. Instead it’s a series about a good Catholic Boy who happens to be gay and his close knit family navigating how they deal with it as they fall from the superior path. Every episode had me rolling with delight remembering our Monseigneur coming to my grandparent’s house for Sunday supper and prayer service with ‘select’ friends invited . Monseigneur Meinke LOVED my grandma’s cooking!
Even if you aren’t Catholic or gay this series handles some serious subjects with a light touch of humor carried off by a talented cast. They’ve managed to make me laugh with episodes dealing with crushes, first gay boyfriend, divorce, favorite child and the general chaos of a loving Catholic Midwest family!
I’m very excited that the cast and creatives are coming to the Beverly Hills Paley Center stage to screen the S2 premier and talk about the show. I’m hoping to cover the red carpet to ask a few questions about the series, how they found a home on ABC and clues for the upcoming season premiering October 11th.
In conjunction with National Coming Out Day, The Paley Center for Media will present a special season two premiere event with the cast and creatives of ABC’s The Real O’Neals on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 at the Paley Center’s Beverly Hills location.
The PaleyLive LA program is open to the public and will feature a season two premiere screening, panel discussion, and interactive Q&A segment with the audience. The full panel event and clips from the program will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu at a later date. The panel conversation will also be added to the Paley Center’s LGBT Archive.
In season one of The Real O’Neals, the image-obsessed Irish-American Catholic mom (Martha Plimpton) makes every effort to hide her family’s troubles from public scrutiny, including a pending divorce and her teenage son’s recent coming out.

Tickets go on sale to Paley Individual Members beginning Saturday, September 24 at 9:00am PT and to the General Public on Monday, September 26 at 9:00am PT. Participants are subject to change.

Attend PaleyLive panel for the FXX comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with the cast/creators talking about working on the series for 11 years. A show that was like nothing else on TV when it premiered with Rob, Glenn and Charlie pitching to FX a crazy slice of life Philly centric show.
An Evening with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Screening & Conversation
Friday, April 1, 2016
Rob McElhenney, “Mac”/Creator & Executive Producer
Glenn Howerton, “Dennis Reynolds”/Creator & Executive Producer
Charlie Day, “Charlie”/Executive Producer
Kaitlin Olson, “Sweet Dee”
Additional panelists to be announced.
One of the longest-running comedies in cable history, this FXX original series from creator Rob McElhenney about Irish bar owners in Philly continues to spotlight dark humor and main characters who can’t seem to do anything right. Often referred to as “Seinfeld on crack,” Always Sunny does not shy away from pointed social commentary, taking on such controversial topics as rape culture, homophobia, and religious bigotry. After eleven years on the air, the show is still the critics’ favorite underdog, as Emily Nussbaum of the New Yorker has pointed out: “Always Sunny has become the milk-steak of sitcoms: the perfect food that no one has ever heard of.” Upon a successful recent season finale, Matthew Rozsa of Salon declared that the series “hasn’t lost any of its edge, mining dark comedy out of a twisted mythology that it has had more than a decade to develop.” The creative team of Always Sunny will discuss the evolution of the series and how they are preparing for their twelfth season.
