If you're a big fan of TV, there's no way you'll want to miss all of the exciting stuff coming out of Paleyfest this year. The even takes place from March 17-26, at the Dolby Center in Los Angeles, CA, and includes some great panels from everyone's favorite shows.
While the line-up is star-studded - arguably better than ever before - there are two panels that seem to stand out among the rest. Fox's hit animated series Bob's Burgers, and the ever-changing anthology on FX, American Horror Story.
The first of the two has always been a hilarious event. The stars of the show - H. Jon Benjamin, John Roberts, Kristen Schaal, Eugene Mirman, Dan Mintz, and Larry Murphy - are constantly finding ways to make the audience laugh. Along with series creator Loren Bouchard, the cast will take the stage and bring the audience a ton of laughs with a surprise performance.
Instead of just talking about an episode or new season arc, the Bob's Burgers folks will be doing a live table read - in character - for the audience in attendance. Since no one in the cast looks anything like their character - two of the female characters are voiced by male comedians - this is sure to be an adventure.
The Bob's Burgers panel will take place on March 24, and 7:30 pm.
As for American Horror Story, that's the panel that often holds the biggest surprises from fans. Since every season is a different story, different actors take part each year. This year's panel will focus on the Roanoke storyline, but there's no telling what will be announced at the event.
This year's panel includes stars Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Cheyenne Jackson, and Cuba Gooding Jr. It's star-studded to say the least, but that's not the only reason to come out to the event.
Paleyfest Director, Rene Reyes, says that the American Horror Story panel is always one of the year's most exciting events. After stating that cosplayers were always encouraged at the AHS panel, Reyes let fans know this is an event they wouldn't want to miss:
“There have been great reveals at every event celebrating the show, from revealing the title of season two, to announcing the casting of Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, and Michael Chiklis by just having them surprise they audience by strolling on stage during the event. You never know what’s going to happen.
It’s the one event where audience members frequently attend in costume as the characters. My favorites were season one and two where there were drag queens dressed as Jessica Lange.“
The American Horror Story panel will take place on March 26 at 7pm.
