The Goldbergs are celebrating the 100th episode at the Paley Center for Media

Relive the 80s at the Paley Center for Media and celebrate The Goldbergs (ABC) on October 17, 2017 with a screening, panel conversation and audience Q&A with the cast and creative team.

Lea Thompson returns to direct the landmark episode, which will be Halloween-themed.

PaleyLive Fall 2017 season welcomes fans of the ABC series The Goldbergs. Fans of the series enjoy laughing on the series based on creator Adam F. Goldberg’s childhood memories from his families videotaped home movies. The series has delighted fans reliving their own memories and also showing current generation how people survived without a cellphone and twitter.

ABC’s The Goldbergs 100th episode will go where no series has gone before with the ultimate geek debate Star Trek vs Star Wars. The episode is called ‘Trek Wars’ and Adam (Sean Giambrone) is sure he’s found his soulmate in girlfriend Jackie (Rowan Blanchard), but he’s stunned when their first Halloween together reveals that she’s a Star Trek fan while he’s devoted to Star Wars. The ultimate geek dispute may be a hurdle their relationship cannot overcome.

The episode will be directed by Back to the Future alum Lea Thompson who returns to direct her second episode set to air Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

“The Goldbergs perfectly captures those fun and crazy days of Pacman, big hair, and Rubik’s Cube,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO.  “This program promises to be an evening of nostalgia and laughter, and is one of the many reasons why PaleyLive programs are the premier experience for both the public and industry professionals.”

The Real O’Neals S2 Premier & Talk PaleyLive LA Event

 

screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-4-28-22-pmCelebrate 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.

Martha Plimpton, “Eileen O’Neal” Jay R. Ferguson, “Pat O’Neal” Noah Galvin, “Kenny O’Neal” Matt Shively, “Jimmy O’Neal” Bebe Wood, “Shannon O’Neal” Mary Hollis Inboden, “Aunt Jodi”  Executive Producers Casey Johnson, David Windsor & Stacy Traub

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 are currently on sale to Paley Supporting and Patron Members. 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.

Star Trek 50th at the Egyptian Theatre

Are you celebrating 50 years of Star Trek at the Egyptian Theatre? Any fan has to head to hollywood and enjoy the beloved series with Q&A, special giveaways and saying goodbye to Nimoy. It’s been a long time since the original Star Trek films have been on the big screen and thanks to The American Cinematheque, Geek Magazine & Paramount Home Video we can celebrate

STAR TREK at 50

I’m hoping to have the opportunity to talk with Adam Nimoy about his father, Spock and his documentary.

Special Guests, Bonus Featurettes, Giveaways, New Documentary ‘FOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK,’ Booksignings, Photo Opportunity and more surprises!

September 9 – 16, 2016 at the Egyptian Theatre

 

Space … the final frontier” opened up to television viewers on September 8, 1966 with the NBC-TV premiere of “Star Trek.” Creator Gene Roddenberry had envisioned the sci-fi series as the interstellar answer to the popular Western “Wagon Train” but couldn’t have possibly imagined how long the “five-year mission” of the U.S.S. Enterprise would last – cancelled after three seasons (and an unprecedented fan letter campaign to keep it on the air), the program spawned animated and live action TV spinoffs and an ongoing series of big screen adventures.

 

In 1979, Robert Wise’s STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE kicked off a mania for TV-to-movie adaptations that has thrived ever since and spawned multiple sequels. To celebrate a half-century of “Star Trek,” we present the new documentary on star Leonard NimoyFOR THE LOVE OF SPOCK, and five of the first features following Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu and Chekov across the galaxy. These films embody the ideals of sci-fi’s first franchise that have endured for 50 years; may they continue to live long and prosper for many more.

Fear the Walking Dead Takes Paleyfest 2016

fear-the-walking-dead-season-2-paleyfest

A zombie show derived from another zombie show that was derived from a comic book? How could this possibly be good? This question was swiftly answered by an hour with the cast and creators at Paleyfest 2016.

The event kicked off with a clip of the final scene of the season 1 finale, catching us up on the emotional note where we left off with Travis having killed Liza. The audience was then treated to two exclusive sneak peeks from the season two premiere that sent adrenaline coursing through the veins of even a newcomer to the show like myself.

1458519346910

Although we were still engrossed in the suspenseful scenes, as the cast stepped onto the stage one by one, they were greeted with the audience’s full attention and enthusiasm.

Throughout the panel, moderator Bob Moynihan asked a range of questions from the technicalities of filming on a boat to the writing challenges of separating this show from its companion The Walking Dead to the inner struggles of individual characters. The thoughtful insights about characters and stories delivered by each member of Fear the Walking Dead were punctuated with jokes and funny moments that sent the audience into uproarious laughter multiple times.

 

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 11.41.56 AM

 

It was made abundantly clear that the passion the fans have for this new show is shared by its cast and creators. They poked fun at themselves for the supernatural storyline, talking about how fun it was to film with zombies. Yet at the same time deeply connected the audience to their characters. Not many people can relate to living with an impending zombie apocalypse, but the raw emotion evoked is something that is universally resonant.

Of course, season 2 could not be completely divulged to us. However, besides the sneak peeks, we were given hints of questions that might be answered. The tangled web of characters, some of whom are family, some not, will face new tests both with each other and the apocalyptic world they live in. To put it simply in the words of Rubén Blade, “Season one was about discovery. Season two is about reaction.”

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 11.43.00 AM

Fans: stay tuned and brace yourselves for what promises to be a phenomenal season. Non-viewers: start binging. There’s a reason why the fans are so invested. Catch the season two premiere Sunday, April 10th.
