Statement on WNET’s decision to return Independent Lens and POV to the schedule on Monday nights

Tim Horsburgh

The Indie Caucus released the following statement this evening:

WNET’s decision to return Independent Lens and POV to the schedule on Monday nights, after hearing from 1,195 viewers, donors and filmmakers in the few days since December 19, is good news for all viewers. But it is particularly good news for those whose voices are underrepresented in American media. Independent, point of view documentary anchors public television’s promise to provide diverse perspectives from and for underrepresented voices in American media. These series curate the highest-quality, most compelling stories showcased in international festivals and forums each year. Public television should treasure them. That is why we are pleased that WNET and PBS will be working in partnership with the Independent Television Service, Independent Lens and POV to raise the visibility of independent work. We expect these partners to consult us and other filmmakers, and also members and representatives of underrepresented communities, as they do the listening tour that they promise over the next four months.
