CNN TRAVELS BACK IN TIME TO THE SEVENTIES - TVbytheNumbers

CNN will launch the new eight-part documentary series, The Seventies, on Thursday, June 11, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. From EMMY® Award-winning producers Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman (Playtone), in association with HBO and EMMY® Award-winning producer Mark Herzog (Herzog & Company), The Seventies examines the individuals and events that influenced and shaped a decade that had a profound impact on America. Through the use of raw and rarely seen archival footage, as well as interviews with journalists, historians, musicians and television artists who were eyewitnesses to history, The Seventies paints a vivid portrait of a period of lasting consequence. The Seventies takes a look at the decade that was just as dramatic as the 1960’s. The hour-long series, airing Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT, delves into the impact of the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, the evolving music scene, the Iran Hostage Crisis, violent crimes in America, the sexual revolution, and the rise in terrorism at home and abroad. The premiere episode, “Television Gets Real,” explores how television matured into the medium people know today with network programming like MASH , the half-hour comedies of Norman Lear ( All in the Family, The Jeffersons ), and new formats including the made-for-TV movie, miniseries ( Roots ) , and two of the most successful franchises in television history ( Monday Night Football and Saturday Night Live) . The episode features commentary from TV titans Tom Hanks, Garry Marshall, Norman Lear, Ed Asner, Bob Newhart, Valerie Harper, and LeVar Burton among many others. Source: tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com
