The 33rd annual PaleyFest will begin tonight at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood with a panel discussion with the cast and producers of Fox’s second-season hip-hop drama “Empire” and a screening of a new episode.

Henson, Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Gray, Trai Byers, Grace Gealey, Kaitlin Doubleday, Gabourey Sidibe, Ta’Rhonda Jones and Serayah, co-creators Danny Strong and Lee Daniels and fellow executive producers Ilene Chaiken and Brian Grazer are scheduled to participate in the panel discussion.

“Empire” was selected by the American Film Institute as one of 2015’s 10 best television series, along with two other series that will also have festival sessions, the AMC drama “Better Call Saul” and the ABC comedy “black-ish.”
