Manifest’s creator, showrunner, and executive producer Jeff Rake said, "Rarely if ever in the history of television will you encounter 10 more grateful people than when the Manifest cast and I take the stage this year at PaleyFest NY. To have been cancelled on broadcast, to have been given a second life as a streamer, and to have ultimately completed our series’ journey the week of our panel…it doesn’t get better than that."

The Handmaid’s Tale’s creator, showrunner and executive producer Bruce Miller said, “We are honored that The Handmaid’s Tale will be part of PaleyFest NY this year, we’re thrilled to be among such incredible company, and we can't wait to be together with our fans.”

Queen Sugar showrunner and executive producer Shaz Bennett added, “As we head into our final season of Queen Sugar and say goodbye to the Bordelon family, we are thrilled to be a part of PaleyFest NY. Y’all have been so welcoming to us over the last seven seasons, and we look forward to seeing our incredible fans who make it all so meaningful. Over the last seven years this show touched on such a range of storylines, and as Ava always says, 'Let’s not just talk about it; let’s be about it.' So honored to be with PaleyFest NY this year, one last time."

The Gilded Age creator, executive producer and writer Lord Julian Fellowes said, “Every writer will agree with me that there is nothing like the realization that a really top-grade cast has been assembled to play your scripts. I could not believe my luck when these people said yes, and the cameras could get ready to roll. Because, when you write a screenplay, there is a dimension missing, and that is where a perfect cast can take them. I can only add that my happy expectations have already been more than fulfilled."

In celebration of the NY festival's 10th edition, The Paley Museum will also feature an immersive month-long exhibition including costumes, props, video, and photograph installations chronicling the festival's rich and storied history.

PaleyFest NY events tickets are on sale now for Paley Members (Partner and Patron Levels) and Citi Cardmembers; on Thursday, September 8 at 10:00 am ET for Paley Center General Members; and on Friday, September 9 at 10:00 am ET for the public.
