TV Junkie: Tuesday
In some TV news with local flavor, Santa Monica-based Ovation, "The Arts Network" (I thought this was Lifetime's tagline?), has announced a series of partnerships with cultural institutions across the country to produce and promote their content and collections. Local organizations include: the LA Opera, Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, and P.S. ARTS. Now if I could only get Ovation on local cable....
Also, despite our tailspin into recession and the lack of decent programming on TV, the Wall Street Journal reports that makers of flat-panel digital televisions like Sony and Sharp are looking at strong and steady growth through any any economic downturn - looks like I'm not the only junkie out there.
