Start your summer off right with our line-up of locally originated and produced programs, presented by PBS SoCaL!

Sit back and enjoy some of your favorite stars as they discuss their current TV projects on Variety Studio: Actors on Actors. The season two episodes feature conversations between Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep) and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Viola Davis (How to Get Away with Murder) and Jane Fonda (Grace and Frankie), and Claire Danes (Homeland) and Don Cheadle (House of Lies) among others. Variety Studio: Actors on Actors will air Sunday, June 14 at 7pm and Sunday, June 21 at 7pm. Please visit the Variety Studio web page for more information.

Strong viewer interest means the return of China’s Challenges to our schedule. The season two episodes explore with unique access and in cinematic detail how China is tackling critical issues, including disparities in wealth and education, social clashes, severe pollution, competing priorities, and tensions between China’s rich traditional culture and its rapidly modernizing society. This exceptional series will continue to air on our PBS SoCaL plus channel throughout the month. Please visit the China’s Challenges web page for more information.

Tune in for an encore presentation of The Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Journey to Joy, which follows talented Southern California teenagers as they prepare to perform Beethoven’s iconic 9th symphony. Schedule to record this special program when it airs June 17at 12:30am.
