“Our Private Idaho” on WORLD and PBS this week
For the last five months I’ve been working with Maria Hinojosa and her brilliant team at the Futuro Media Group on America by the Numbers, a new PBS series about demographic changes sweeping the country. The episode I wrote and directed, about white flight to northern Idaho, airs this Thursday, October 16th on WORLD Channel (a PBS offshoot), and Saturday, October 18th on PBS. It will also be available for streaming Friday, October 17th, on pbs.org We showed it to a full house at the Ford Foundation on October 1st, and the response (gasping at graphics!) was amazing. I’m very proud of this show, and hope you’ll watch it! More on the episode and the series at americabythenumbers.org.
