Hey, everybody!

I wanted to give you an update on the new show. We’ve been working ridiculously hard all summer and we’re just over half-way through filming this first season. The show will be airing on Public Television starting this October (check your local listings ;) ). GBH has put together the promotional “sizzle reel” (that’s an industry term…I think) to get everyone excited; I hope it works. It was cool for us to see, because it looks like a real TV show. Weird.
