Panel discussions with the casts of the ABC comedy “black-ish” and the CBS  action-adventure drama “Supergirl” will be held today at the Dolby Theatre as part of the 33rd annual PaleyFest.

The “black-ish” session was to begin at 2 p.m.

Star and executive producer Anthony Anderson, his castmates Tracee Ellis Ross, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, Marcus Scribner and Yara Shahidi, series creator Kenya Barris and fellow executive producer Jonathan Groff are scheduled to participate in the panel discussion.

The American Film Institute selected “black-ish” as one of 2015’s 10 best television series for rejoicing “in the power of the sitcom to find what is funny in today’s issues of race and class.”

The “Supergirl” session will begin at 7 p.m. Star Melissa Benoist, her castmates Calista Flockhart, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan and David Harewood, series co-creators Greg Berlanti, Ali Adler and Andrew Kreisberg and fellow executive producer Sarah Schechter are scheduled to participate in the panel discussion.

Tickets for both sessions are priced from $30-$80 and can be purchased at the festival’s website, paleyfest.org. A limited number of tickets will be sold at the Dolby Theatre.

The festival is billed by organizers as a pop culture experience that connects fans with the casts and creators of their favorite television series. The programs consist of never-before seen episodes and exclusive clips packages created for the event and panel discussions.

Here is the schedule for the remainder of the festival:

Tuesday — “Scandal” (7:30 p.m.);

Wednesday — “The Big Bang Theory” (7:30 p.m.);

Friday — “Difficult People” (7:30 p.m.)

Saturday — “Fear the Walking Dead” (2 p.m.); Salute to Dick Wolf (7 p.m.);

March 20 — “Power” (2 p.m.); “American Horror Story: Hotel” (7 p.m.).
