TRUE BLOOD TO BE AT PALEY FEST 2011

PALEY FEST 2011

TRUE BLOOD will be at Paley Fest 2011. I was just lamenting how much I enjoyed Paley 2009 when True Blood was there and that they probably will not attend again because now the show is just too big. I have never been so happy to be wrong. Starting in January the True Blood fans can buy tickets to the event. This is great news!

PALEY FEST 2011

Here is their press release for Paley Fest 2011:

Evenings Honoring True Blood, The Walking Dead, 10 seasons of American Idol and a reunion of the casts of Judd Apatow’s Freaks & Geeks and Undeclared are the first four honorees revealed from PaleyFest2011’s 12-Event Lineup

  1. I became a donor to the Paley Center last year in hopes TB would be there again…so I’m definitely going to join again, hoping members get a first crack at tickets.

  2. I’d love to help fill a row (or two) with Billsbabes. Have to get that week in March off. If I remember right, the best way to get tickets was to buy a pass for the entire Paleyfest, which was a bit pricey. Of course, in 2009 TB wasn’t quite the phenom that it is now, so tickets were probably easier to get.
