It’s almost time for the annual Network TV Upfront Presentations which is also one of the best opportunities to meet celebs in NYC.
The Upfronts are annual presentations where the TV networks reveal their fall line-ups to advertisers. They also bring their biggest stars to really impress reporters. Though there is no public access to these events, they can still be a perfect opportunity to meet celebrities as they are arriving or leaving.
Below is the schedule of this year’s Upfronts. Stay tuned for more information about the exact venues for each event as more information becomes available.
Also, feel free to use this post as an Open Thread to discuss where and how to meet celebs during the 2013 TV Network Upfronts in the comments below!
