Re-Cap Paleyfest 2014: Sleepy Hollow

"Don't Lose Your Head" - Sleepy Hollow Promo Poster
I was fortunate enough to be in the audience on Wednesday, March 19th's Paleyfest for my new favorite television show, Sleepy Hollow.  It's one of those shows that is brilliantly written - funny while still keeping you on the edge of your seat with its twists and turns - and supported by an amazingly talented and diverse cast.  But if you're reading this, I probably don't have to convince you that.

At the start of the program, we saw a recap of the finale revealing moments of the show.  I won't spoilt them if you haven't watched them yet, but the show's first season definitely ended on some nail-biting moments for all the characters.  This led into a great conversation between cast and producers with Sandra Gonzalez from Entertainment Weekly moderating. 

There were many big laughs from comments by the cast members on the show. 

On the show's dynamics itself:

On Tom Mison learning about fans who "ship" Ichabbie.

On John Cho's make-up work for the show, compared to Zachary Quinto's make-up work on Star Trek:

On the success of the show:
On the writing and production of the show:

The diversity of Sleepy Hollow cast has been one of the most lauded parts of the show.  During a fan Q/A period, this was brought up and met by huge applaud and recognition for both the diversity in the cast of the show as well as those behind-the-scenes. 

At some point, even the Headless Horseman couldn't resist making his arrival - although there was more to be said about his exit. 

We love Paleyfest because it gives TV fans the inside scoop on their favorite shows!  If you can't make it out to the event or are just not in Los Angeles, you can experience the PaleyFest Live Stream on your computer/device or watch it through one of their mobile applications.
