PBS & CPB Diversity & Innovation Fund Request For Proposals - Projects Status

These projects are advancing for further consideration by CPB and PBS as a part of the Diversity and Innovation Fund RFP:

"DC Met: Life Inside School Reform" - National Black Programming Consortium              

“DC Met…” chronicles a changing city and the changing face of public education within the nation, generally, and within the District of Columbia public schools, in particular.  Viewers will have the opportunity to develop relationships with characters that recur each week and to explore - first hand - what happens in schools.

"The Lifecasters" - Bay Area Video Coalition - BAVC              

“The Lifecasters” explores the yet-untold stories of Americans living on the edge, beyond the spotlight, outside of the mainstream.  Compelling people whose life experience defies categorization, who live as outsiders from Main Street America, and who contribute rarely heard, unique voices to our culture.

"State of the Re:Union TV" - Al Letson (Creator/Host/Executive Producer) & WGBH Educational Foundation

Based on Al Letson's public radio program, each week this show focuses on a specific American city, its unique characteristics, and the lives of its inhabitants.
