Three of television’s most talked-about shows are headed to PaleyFest LA in 2018.

The Times’ can exclusively confirm that Netflix’s cultural phenomenon “Stranger Things,” NBC’s revitalized revival of “Will & Grace” and ABC’s ratings juggernaut “The Good Doctor” will all be featured at next year’s PaleyFest LA held March 16-25. 

“For thirty-five years PaleyFest LA has set the standard for what a television festival should be,” Paley Center president and CEO Maureen J. Reidy said in a statement Thursday. “We’re so proud to announce the first three selections for this special anniversary, each of which represent the best of what television has to offer, and epitomize the stellar programming featured at PaleyFest LA year after year.”

PaleyFest LA benefits the Paley Center’s ongoing efforts to preserve and archive television artifacts and examine the impact of media on culture and society.
