PaleyFest 2012 opens tonight at 7 pm at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills with the cast and creators from American Horror Story, guests include Executive Producer Ryan Murphy, Connie Britton, (Vivien Harmon), Dylan McDermott (Ben Harmon) and Jessica Lange (Constance Langdon), among others.

Officially known as the 29th Annual William S. Paley Television Festival, the two-week fest is a celebration of current television shows. The numerous events break down the barriers (aka TV sets) between those of us who watch TV and the people on the other side of the screen. The moderated discussions may also include questions from the audience.

For the first time, Livestream will provide live streaming of all PaleyFest 2012 panels from the Saban Theatre. They won’t be archived on Livestream, so be sure to mark your calendars if you can’t make it in real life:
