Meeting Ken Burns at TCA

PBS revealed to the press some of the amazing programming they have lined up for this year and next at the Television Critics Association Press Tour at the Beverly Hilton this week.

As a PBS Kids VIP blogger, I and several blogger friends were invited to check out the often star-studded presentations (hello, "Downton Abbey!") at the press tour. One of the programs I'm looking forward to (in addition to "Odd Squad" for CC) is the latest Ken Burns documentary "The Roosevelts: An Intimate History," which airs Sept. 14. The 14-hour doc (yes, 14 hours, but not all in one sitting) chronicles the lives of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor.

And as usual for Burns, it looks thorough and amazing. Did you know that Theodore Roosevelt wrote more than 100,000 letters?!

I had the chance to meet Ken Burns, alongside the film's and book's writer Geoffrey C. Ward, at TCA, and got this great pic with other bloggers. They even signed the book!

Stay tuned for more PBS at TCA news!
