Tell Me More with Kelly Corrigan
Three parts air Mondays at 9:30 p.m., premiering Oct. 5, 2020
TELL ME MORE WITH KELLY CORRIGAN is an intimate and heartfelt interview series hosted by four-time New York Times bestselling author Kelly Corrigan. The first episode premiere on Southern Oregon PBS Monday, October 5, 2020, 9:30 p.m.
Corrigan will conduct candid conversations with influential leaders in their fields, including acclaimed public interest lawyer Bryan Stevenson. In each one-hour episode, Corrigan will explore her guests' universal humanity and passions. Throughout the series, the audience will learn revealing insights that will place her guests in a new light. The conversations with Corrigan and her guests will reveal the experiences we all have in common and how we can use those experiences to make a difference. Additional featured guests profiled in the series will be announced this fall.
A critical feature of the program is Corrigan’s idea to ask her guests for a “Plus Two” — two individuals they personally or professionally know, admire and respect, and who've influenced their lives. Through these additional interviews, Corrigan will amplify the voices of people who may be less well known and share some ideas of what her guests find important.
“What I most look forward to exploring in Tell Me More is the deep, undeniable connection we share with one another, which is not always as apparent and palpable as it could be,” said Kelly Corrigan. “With more empathy and less judgment, we’re bound to be better versions of ourselves, individually and collectively.”
“In this era of COVID-19, we all have been forced to think hard about what is most important in our lives,” said James Blue, Executive-in-Charge of PBS NEWSHOUR’s special programming. “Kelly Corrigan brings compassion to everything she does, and I can think of no one better to engage with her various guests on their foundational values. While social distancing is the order of the day, this program will illustrate our common need for connection.”
In addition to broadcasting on PBS stations, the program will stream at pbs.org/newshour and pbs.org; and on the PBS Video App (available on iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Smart TVs).
