PostSubject: Elvis kicks off Paley festival   Thu Jan 10, 2008 12:02 am

Event to take place March 14-27

Elvis is back in the building.
The 1968 TV special “Singer Presents Elvis” will kickstart the William S. Paley Festival, to be held March 14-27 at the Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. A discussion with Priscilla Presley will follow a screening of the original telecast.

“Elvis (Presley) is one of our most cherished media icons, and having Priscilla Presley with us is a perfect way to celebrate the impact and influence of the Elvis phenomenon on pop culture,” said Paley Center for Media president Pat Mitchell.

“Singer Presents Elvis,” which featured Presley performing some of his most memorable songs, was the top-rated special 40 years ago, with 42% of the viewing audience tuning in.

Although the entire festival lineup hasn’t been revealed, shows already announced include “Gossip Girl,” “Pushing Daisies” and a night dedicated to Judd Apatow. The full lineup will be announced Feb. 4.

The Paley Festival moves to the Cinerama Dome in March after many years at the Directors Guild of America building in West Hollywood.
