EGG the arts show

May 2003
Broadcasting & Cable;5/26/2003 Supplement, Vol. 133 Issue 21, p30
The television program 'ECG the arts show,' from the cable television network Thirteen/WNET, New York receives a Peabody Award as of May 27, 2003. It is smart, entertaining, unpretentious and not infrequently funny. It is premised on the assumption that art can he explored without being "dumbed down" and each week the program uses television to accomplish this as playfully, intelligently and persuasively as possible. Executive producer Jeff Folmsbee, series producer Mark Mannucci, coordinating producer Julie Shapiro Thorman, and associate producers Micah Cormier, Stephanie Daniel, and Jenny Ho help us to realize that art is fun to think about, play with, and understand. They have worked with production supervisor Cindy Linnell, director of special projects, Jan Guru, and director of Culture and Arts Programming for Thirteen/WNET, Jac Venza on one great big experiment on how to deal with the arts and with television.
