Tuesday (4/26), On The Little Screen

The long-brewing effort to bring the history of Philadelphia to film gets its official start Tuesday night at 7:30. The pilot film of what will hopefully be a 7-part documentary series airs on 6ABC in the Philadelphia region. This slightly edited for TV version captures the city trying to come to terms with the death of Lincoln. From there, the floodgates open on development, civil rights, and industrial innovation. “Anything is possible,” says historian Shan Holt. Ellen Gray from the Daily News reviewed the film on Monday and the City Paper covered the film project last week. The project is a labor of love for all of us closely involved. I hope you’ll tune in!
