RYAN MURPHY NAMED RECIPIENT OF INAUGURAL PALEYFEST ICON AWARD

THE PALEY CENTER FOR MEDIA ALSO REVEALS "AMERICAN HORROR STORY: ASYLUM" AND "THE NEW NORMAL" TO JOIN THE FESTIVAL'S 30TH ANNIVERSARY LINEUP

BEVERLY HILLS, CA, DECEMBER 17, 2012 - As part of its 30th annual celebration of great television, PaleyFest: The William S. Paley Television Festival today announced Ryan Murphy as the recipient of the Festival's inaugural PaleyFest Icon Award. Additionally two of Murphy's series, American Horror Story: Asylum and The New Normal will join the PaleyFest lineup of honorees during the Festival's two-week run, which was recently announced to take place at the Saban Theatre, March 1-15, 2013.

The PaleyFest Icon Award, the first such honor in the Festival's 30-year history, is named for William S. Paley, the pioneering media titan and founder of The Paley Center for Media, and recognizes individual creative achievements in television. Murphy, whose series Glee, Nip/Tuck, and American Horror Story have been previous PaleyFest honorees, will receive the award at a celebration slated for Wednesday, February 27, 2013 at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, which will serve as PaleyFest's kickoff event.

"Ryan Murphy is a true innovator and one of the most original creators working in television today," said Pat Mitchell, President and CEO of The Paley Center for Media. "Each of his series has been a game changer in the medium, and continues to inform the cultural conversation. We can't imagine a more fitting PaleyFest Icon for the Festival's 30th anniversary."

"I have loved the lively Paley Festival evenings I've participated in over the years, which are a unique opportunity for creators, actors and viewers to come together and discuss the work that we spend so much time creating in isolation," commented Ryan Murphy. "I couldn't be more honored to be recognized by this organization for which I have so much professional respect and personal gratitude."

Additionally, PaleyFest reveals two of Murphy's series American Horror Story: Asylum and The New Normal will join the previously announced honorees The Newsroom, Revolution and Once Upon A Time, as part of the PaleyFest slate. The full festival lineup will be revealed January 9, 2013.

Hulu will stream full-length panel content and short form clips, exclusively on-demand from each PaleyFest panel on the free ad-supported Hulu, and the Hulu Plus subscription service at www.hulu.com.
