Paley Festival

Tickets for this year's Paley Festival went on sale today, and some programs have sold out already.

For the uninitiated, the Paley Festival celebrates TV shows past and present. A presentation on a show will usually screen one or two episodes, and then bring creative people and actors onto the stage for a panel discussion.

I note that one of the programs is for DOLLHOUSE. It will take place on April 19. We'll have to see if the show is still on the air when that date rolls around. (Not that cancellation will affect the program. One of the sold-out programs will screen three unaired episodes of PUSHING DAISIES.)

We've bought tickets for the program on another Whedon production, DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG. There was a screening and panel on DHSAB at the 2008 San Diego Con; and the line for it went past the entrance to the room where my cousin Lee's panel for the Media Tie-In Awards was being held. Lee, naturally, asked me why I wasn't in line to see Whedon. Of course, since Whedon writes media tie-ins (most recently, his Dark Horse comics continuing his BUFFY and FIREFLY/SERENITY series), he should have gone to Lee's panel.
