Go behind-the-scenes of TV's longest-running, most-watched history series, and get to know the filmmakers, producers, historians, and series staff that make history come alive.
Our season kicks off Tuesday night (January 10) with Billy the Kid, the first installment of our Wild West Collection. Along with these new shows AMERICAN EXPERIENCE has been working on some exciting initiatives that you, the viewer, can use to build on your experience during the program itself.
AMERICAN EXPERIENCE has partnered with GetGlue for exclusive check-ins to the show. During Billy the Kid and other premieres, check-in to the "Billy the Kid on AMERICAN EXPERIENCE" page to join in on the conversation of others on the GetGlue network. Individual program pages also exist for Custer's Last Stand, Clinton, and The Amish. (You can also join others in discussing other shows on the AMERICAN EXPERIENCE series GetGlue page.)
GetGlue is also featuring exclusive AMERICAN EXPERIENCE stickers for checking into our shows. Starting January 10, you can earn the "Wild West" sticker by checking into two or more of the Wild West Collection shows (Billy the Kid, Custer's Last Stand, Wyatt Earp, Geronimo, Annie Oakley, or Jesse James).
Starting today, you can also earn an "American Experience Fan" sticker with five check-ins to any 2012 premiere, and an "American Experience Superfan" sticker with ten premiere check-ins. Also, stay tuned for a "Clinton" sticker and "Presidents Fan" sticker coming in February.
AMERICAN EXPERIENCE has also launched "The Wild West Challenge" on Flickr. Running from January 10 to 31, post your photos of the Wild West to our Flickr page, and we'll post the best picture on our Facebook page on February 1.
Finally, we are launching a new Foursquare list where you can check-in to all your favorite spots from our Wild West Collection. The race is on for whoever can check-in to all six of our Wild West locations.
We are excited to experience the Wild West with you this month, and look forward to a season full of viewer engagement fun!
