TV Upfronts 2017 Schedule: Presentations & Parties

With a writers strike averted and TV folks descending on New York, here again is Deadline’s handy list of the upfront festivities. There are two changes since we first published the list more than two and-a-half weeks ago. WME’s late-night cocktail party, shelved as a work stoppage was looming, is back on, rejoining the agency’s traditional upfronts dinner. And Jimmy Kimmel, who had been slated for his 15th annual roast at the ABC upfront presentation, pulled out following his newborn son’s surgery. With the exception of the ICM Partners dinner, which had been canceled because of the threat of a potential strike, all the usual parties are on.
