The Paley Center for Media on Tuesday announced the first batch of honorees for its 34th annual PaleyFest.

Set to participate in the March 17-26 annual showcase are HBO's Westworld, NBC's This Is Us and FX's American Horror Story: Roanoke.

This marks a return trip for Ryan Murphy's horror anthology series AHS, which also appeared last year timed to the season five installment, Hotel. This will be the first appearance for freshman dramas Westworld and This Is Us, which each earned three Golden Globe nominations on Monday.

“For 34 years, PaleyFest has solidified its place as the must-attend entertainment event of the year,” Paley Center for Media president and CEO Maureen J. Reidy said in a statement. “We’re proud to announce as part of our initial lineup these three very diverse and thrilling series in what promises to be our most exciting lineup yet.”

Additional participating series will be announced at a later date.

The festival will return to the Dolby Theatre. Tickets go on sale Jan. 11 for members and Jan. 12 for the general public.
