A two week festival celebrating "television's rich and diverse programming and... creative process" would be enough to get our attention to start with... But the first four announced shows to be featured guarantees our love.

Variety reports that the first four shows announced for April's 26th William S. Paley Television Festival are Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (which isn't actually a television show, but, you know, Joss), Fringe and True Blood. I promise you, we haven't taken over the programming committee for the festival.


Joss Whedon will be present at both the Dollhouse and Horrible panels, along with further cast and crew from both shows, yet to be announced, talking about the behind-the-scenes process required to bring us the goods on a regular basis. Cast and crew from Fringe and Blood are also expected to appear during the festival's April 10th through 23rd run. All we need to complete the set would be appearances from Ron Moore, talking about Battlestar Galactica, and Bryan Fuller showing the unseen final three episodes of Pushing Daisies, and I'd be flying down to start waiting outside the ArcLight Cinemas' Cinerama Dome with my sleeping bag for the next two months.
