Television stars take over Monaco City. "Baywatch" star Pamela Anderson, "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett and "White Collar" actor Lucas Til have arrived for the 57th Monte-Carlo TV Festival. In 1961 The Monte Carlo TV Festival was created by Monaco's Prince Rainer III, husband of actress Grace Kelly. During the festival, actress Helen Mirren will receive a lifetime achievement award while international TV shows, fiction and news, compete for the main prize "The Golden Nymph" award. Actor John Corbett is part of this year's jury. Next year the long-running event will have to compete with the new TV Festival, Cannes Series, which will reportedly run simultaneously.
