It’s that time of year…the tulips are springing up, coats are left at home and talent from across Discovery Communications‘ networks gather in New York City for our annual Upfront Presentation.

Yesterday, Discovery welcomed clients, media and other special guests to the Frederick P. Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center and introduced upcoming programming from our networks.

This year’s show featured musical numbers (including a showstopper from OWN’s Rosie O’Donnell, pictured below) and new faces that will be making their debut with us — from Penn & Teller to Billy Ray Cyrus. The iconic Morgan Freeman had everyone in the audience captivated (that voice!), too.

Check out just a few of the highlights in photos below, and keep an eye on Discovery Blog for updates on what’s coming to your living room next!
