The people at Deadline.com rock. Here is the official list of upfront schedules and most importantly….the parties!!!! I know some people I talked to are actually planning on attending the upfronts. I wish I could. It looks like a lot of fun. One of these years when I don’t have to REALLY work for a living (yeah right) I want to go to upfront week. I’d also like to go to the Paley Festival as well.
In the meantime, if you are someone planning to attend any of these, hopefully the information Deadline put out will help you:

Really? ABC is letting Jimmy Kimmel do a roast for their upfront presentation? Didn’t they see him completely BOMB the Correspondents Dinner with President Obama not too long ago? The man simply isn’t funny so I’m not sure why people continue to give him platforms to embarrass himself.
If anyone attends any of these functions, let me know how it was and who got rip roaring drunk and embarrassed themselves…other than Jimmy Kimmel of course…he’s a given.
