KCET in Los Angeles, the largest independent pubTV station in the country, has revealed the initial lineup of its new original series produced with a $50 million investment from Eyetronics Media & Studios in Encino, Calif. (Current, Aug. 16). All five shows, highlighting life in Southern California, are available for distribution both domestically and internationally.

The programs are Ocean Alive with host Jean-Michel Cousteau, in a program that “combines the beauty of Southern California and the glamour of Hollywood with the powerful message of conservation”; Department of State, a public affairs show with a rotating group of global media correspondents; California Game Changers, profiling innovative industries, inventors and their products; Classic Cool Theatre, which draws on Eyetronics’ large library of vintage Hollywood films, beginning with the 1945 film noir classic Detour; and
Retrostory, using Eyetronics’ library of historic newsreels for a bi-weekly documentary on social phenomena, influential political and entertainment figures and revolutionary technical advancements of the 1900s.
