True Blood Live!

Paley FestSave the date Truebies! The Paley Center for Media has just announced its festival lineup for the 2011 William S. Paley Festival, also known as PaleyFest 2011! True Blood will be appearing on Saturday, March 5, 2011 at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California at 7PM.

According to the Paley Center website, tickets will go on sale to Paley Center Members on Friday January 21, 2011 at 9am PST and Sunday, January 23, 2011 to the public also at 9am PST via Ticket Web. Prices for the General Public range from $25 to $75. VIP packages are on sale now for four shows each at $750.

So far, the Paley Festival has not released the names of who will attend from True Blood. But Skarsgå has confirmed that Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman) will be on the True Blood panel after speaking with the actor directly. As the event draws closer, hopefully there will be more confirmation from other cast and crew members. TBN will release updates if that happens.

What is Paley Fest?

An official press release released by the Paley Festival states that on the night of each panel, audiences will get the opportunity to view an episode or highlights from the specific television show and afterwards, the cast and crew on the panel will discuss it as well as take questions from audience members. This means that the tone will be different from fan events True Blood has done in the past.

To get an idea of what happens during PaleyFest; clips of past panels are available on the Paley Center website with full events available for purchase on iTunes or on See the source link below for more details.

So tell me Truebies, are you going to go see Alexander and the other cast members and creative team live? Let me know in the comment section below!
