PBS Documentary Series ‘Pov’ Brings Syrian Rebels, ‘Killer Lesbians’ to 2015 Season

10 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The longest-running series for independent documentaries on television, “Pov,” is prepared to unveil its 28th season, which will include an exclusive look behind insurgent lines in the Syrian civil war, an ode to one man’s 35,000-mile worldwide motorcycle odyssey and the Academy Award-nominated “Cutie and the Boxer,” which explores the marriage of famed “boxing” painter Ushio Shinohara.

The documentary film series is particularly intent on broadening its audience on PBS this year, as the network’s flagship New York affiliate, Wnet, considers moving the program out of its primetime lineup. Supporters of “Pov” and “Independent Lens” — another documentary program threatened with removal from  primetime — worry that other PBS stations might oust the two shows from their 10 p.m. Monday-night time slot.

Producers of the two programs protest that there is nowhere else on television that regularly broadcasts the controversial work of truly independent filmmakers — those who maintain editorial control over their work. »
