TED Specials - 2015/2016

ITVS works with TED to produce three one-hour television programs (on the topics of education, veterans, and science) for distribution on PBS. In addition, ITVS is producing 12 short-form videos with independent filmmakers for inclusion in the broadcast programs, and five ‘champion' spots based on TED speakers. Filming of the programs took place at the Town Hall theater in New York, during the first week of November 2015. Content included TED Talks, interviews, and entertainment. Additional material for the five spots /interstitials that can be used for websites and station engagement was also recorded. Short form videos will be produced separately by ITVS and edited into the TED programs (4 per program) during post-production.
