KCETLink Steps Out with ‘City Walk’: A NewTransmedia Series
An original multi-media series explores the growingeffort to utilize public walkable spaces in major cities across the country tobecome less vehicle-dependent
As the nation continues to grow accustomed to a society with little physical movement and exercise in the last century, the rise of health conditions such as obesity,diabetes, high blood pressure and depression have been looming side effects. KCET Link has announced the premiere of City Walk, a new multi-media series that captures a rising nationwide effort to reverse this trend, spotlighting walkable neighborhoods in major cities, and inspiring viewers to explore urban areas by foot.
Launched on KCET Thursday, May 2 at 10 p.m. and on Link TV Thursday, May 9 at 8:30EST/5:30 PSD, this unique six-part series reveals the way walking is transforming cities across America, and in the process, re-connecting us with our bodies.
“We are excited to be able to offer an innovative multi-faceted series to our viewers and invite them to explore their public urban landscape with multiple engagement opportunities on the air,online and beyond,” said Juan Devis, Vice President, Arts and Culture Programming for KCET Link. “We are pleased to help shepherd urban exploration into the public consciousness through walking, and encourage a healthier lifestyle.”
“After working for two years on collecting these inspirational stories from across the country, we are proud to bring this national conversation about walking to the KCET Link audience,”added Thomas Rigler, Executive Producer, CityWalk. “The show has been an incredible journey, and we are eager to have the viewers now join us.”
The first season of City Walk features 30-minute episodes exploring various aspects of pedestrian life in cities including: Los Angeles,Portland, Boston, Atlanta, Washington D.C. and New York. Each episode offers inspiring stories centered on the health and biology of walking, historical perspectives on how our society settled into a sedentary lifestyle and the positive impact walking can make in peoples’ lives.
As the show explores the “walkability”of communities within each metropolis, viewers will learn about American history by exploring culturally rich neighborhoods, stunning architecture,monuments and beautiful parks that have helped define the character of each city.
The multi-platform series will engage audiences beyond television and also permeate online, mobile, tablets, social networks and communal activism across urban landscapes. The series features a vibrant online destination at kcet.org/citywalk where visitors can stream full episodes, find show segments, web extras, related news, and tap into additional resources on how walking can change your life.
