There was very little in the way of new information coming out of Paley Front Row’s NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist: A Conversation with the Stars and Creators, and yet there was this sense that everyone involved with the show loves Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlistt as much as fans do, and more importantly, that they understand why this show is so important to so many.
You can’t really ask for much more.
We’re going to give you all a chance to watch it and re-watch it before we post a detailed breakdown on what was said, but we didn’t want to be remiss in reminding you that this conversation is NOW available, and to, of course, recommend that you come into it with like, a box of Kleenex.
Trust us, you’ll need it.
In the meantime, here’s the official description for the panel:
Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is NBC’s wholly original musical dramedy about a computer coder who, after an MRI mishap, suddenly starts to hear the innermost thoughts of the people around her, as imaginatively staged musical numbers that are only visible to her. Created by Austin Winsberg and choreographed by Emmy-winner Mandy Moore (La La Land), the series charmed critics and viewers alike following its debut in January and has been renewed for a second season. Zoey is blessed with a gifted ensemble of actors who expertly balance the show’s dramatic, comedic, and often romantic story lines. Participating in the conversation with the creative team: Jane Levy (Zoey Clarke), Lauren Graham (Joan), Mary Steenburgen (Maggie), Peter Gallagher (Mitch), Skylar Astin (Max), Alex Newell (Mo), and John Clarence Stewart (Simon).
