Attn. L.A. Reasonoids: Come Help Me Find the Future of Public Television


The good folks at the American Cinema Foundation are hosting four interesting panel discussions on Friday and Saturday at the American Film Institute, including one on "Public Television Confidential: A Look at Basic Premises," where I'll be chanting "Free Big Bird!" and suchlike.

Details: Saturday, 8 p.m., moderated by occasional Reason contributor Cathy Seipp; other panelists include The Hollywood Reporter's Ray Richmond and Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory director Mel Stuart. Admission is free, seating is limited, RSVPs are a must, and more information (including on the other panels) here.
