“The District is a 3-episode deep dive into community issues around DC – from homeless families navigating DC General, the fight for Barry Farms, food incubators and community gardens to the Goodman League, H Street redevelopment and the impact of rapid city change on small and new businesses.
The series was the winning idea — from first-time director, Will McKinley– for WHUT TV’s local series competition, My Big Show. More than 50 entries for show ideas came from DC residents in 2015 with the promise of a guaranteed production budget and airing of the winning entry. The project was an attempt to identify and incubate local content that can someday be the future of public media.
The series airs 6/22, 6/29 and July 6 at 9pm on WHUT TV (PBS-32).”
