Named for William S.

At this ultimate TV fanfest in the heart of the entertainment industry here in Los Angeles, we offer television enthusiasts an unrivaled connection with the casts and crews of their favorite series as well as the opportunity to honor media icons and innovators," said Pat Mitchell, president and chief executive officer of The Paley Center for Media.
