If you’ve ever thought Kaitlin Olson and Adam Pally would make great drinking buddies, you’re in luck: Two of FOX’s exciting midseason comedies, The Mick and Making History, will get exclusive first-look screenings at EW PopFest, followed by a happy hour with the shows’ casts and creators on Oct. 29.
The Mick stars It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Olson as a Sweet Dee-esque, responsibility-avoiding aunt who gets stuck in the suburbs taking care of her wealthy sister’s three children after her sister and brother-in-law are arrested, while Making History features Happy Endings‘ Adam Pally as a man who time-travels to the 18th century and accidentally changes the entire fabric of America by messing with the outcome of the American Revolution, with some help from his college-professor friend.
The screenings will be followed by a FOX-sponsored happy hour with the cast and creators. The Mick is from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia producers Dave and John Chernin, while Making History comes from The Lego Movie writer-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller and executive producer Julius Sharpe.
The screenings join an already stacked lineup at PopFest, which includes a panel with Jennifer Aniston and her Office Christmas Party cast, a sneak peek of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them courtesy of Eddie Redmayne himself, performances by Nick Jonas and Tove Lo, a table read from the cast of Happy Endings (Pally included), an exclusive first look at Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival from creator/executive producer Amy Sherman-Palladino and executive producer Daniel Palladino, and a whole slew of other celebrities, performances, activities, and exclusive screenings.
EW PopFest runs from Oct. 29-30 at The Reef in Downtown Los Angeles. For more information and to purchase tickets, go to ewpopfest.com.
