Burbank, Calif. - December 19, 2017 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Link TV, a national independent public satellite television network, announced today two important environmental documentaries launching on the network in January that include the series premiere of RESILIENT CITIES and the premiere of the global broadcast event 24 HOURS OF REALITY.
Link TV will broadcast three seasons of RESILIENT CITIES, an International Emmy® Award nominated documentary series that uncovers the underground art scene of chaotic cities around the world recovering from the major traumas of long term war, political unrest, natural disasters or economic meltdown. Each episode profiles three or four young, determined local artists (plus one Canadian ex-pat with an outsider’s perspective) that are using art to impact their city: this is art as a form of protest, as an agent of change and as a display of courage. RESILIENT CITIES premieres Tues., Jan. 9 at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT with encores Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT on Link TV available nationwide (DirecTV 375 and DISH network 9410).
The episodes of RESILIENT CITIES will telecast as follows (subject to change):
