The Latest Selection to the PaleyLive Series Features One of 2024’s Most Anticipated New Shows and Will Feature a Conversation with Star and Executive Producer Kristen Wiig and Star Carol Burnett

New York, NY, March 5, 2024 The Paley Center for Media today announced the latest selection of its acclaimed PaleyLive series, Kristen Wiig and Carol Burnett: A Night with Apple TV+’s Palm Royale. The PaleyLive event will feature a sneak preview of an upcoming episode of the highly anticipated show followed by a discussion with star and executive producer Kristen Wiig and star Carol Burnett. This event will take place at The Paley Museum located on 25 West 52 Street on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, at 7:15 pm.

Premiering globally on Apple TV+ on March 20, Palm Royale is a true underdog story that follows Maxine Simmons, played by Wiig, as she endeavors to break into Palm Beach high society. As Maxine attempts to cross that impermeable line between the haves and the have-nots, Palm Royale asks the same question that still baffles us today: How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to get what someone else has? Set during the controversial year of 1969, Palm Royale is a testament to every outsider fighting for their chance to belong.

The Paley Museum will screen the fourth episode of the series ahead of its March 27 premiere on Apple TV+, immediately followed by a discussion with Kristen Wiig (Maxine Simmons) and Carol Burnett (Norma Dellacorte), as they discuss this exciting new show, share stories from the set, and reflect on how Palm Royale fits into their incredible careers. Additionally, as a lead up to this exciting evening, The Paley Museum will screen the first three episodes of Palm Royale on the big screen in the Bennack Theater March 22 to 24.

Palm Royale is a fun and fascinating look at high society set against the backdrop of 1969 America,” said the Paley Center’s President & CEO Maureen J. Reidy. “The Paley Museum is thrilled to offer this exciting behind-the-scenes look at one of television’s hottest new shows.”

All PaleyLive programs are selected by the Paley Center to not only expand society’s understanding of the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, but also for their ability to educate and entertain the public.
