CCSU TV Shows
Central Arts, a half-hour weekly, features the breadth of fine arts activity at the
University. Art exhibitions, jazz, choral, chamber and orchestral music ensembles,
poetry readings, technical and performance theater as well as student video projects
make up the 26 shows annual production. We also produce Community Specials with a
Focus on the Arts as a public service.
Central Authors is an annual series of 12 half-hour programs produced for Connecticut's
cable television stations. The format allows our faculty and staff the familiar comfort
of the classroom lecture, but in the Campus Bookstore. It also provides them the
luxury to wax over their work for the full 30 minutes without interruption. Essentially
the full span of scholarship defines the topical domain with presenters ranging from
seasoned veteran authors to 'first-book' pens.
Frames Per Second is produced by the CCSU Media Technology Department. The goal of
the program is to highlight and feature local filmmakers. A particular emphasis is
placed on student filmmaking. The filmmaker is interviewed in-studio and some of
their work is interspersed throughout the program. The sophomore effort of Frames
Per Second will debut in the Fall of 2010 on CCSU TV 23.
THE HOUR with Jim Pellegrino is produced by the CCSU Media Technology Department.
THE HOUR is a one hour talk format program, shot in-studio, live to tape each month.
The show features a variety of guests from the worlds of business, education, politics,
medicine, human interest and entrepreneurial success stories. The goal of the program
is to provide a lively, informative and entertaining time for the viewers and the
guests. Hosted by Jim Pellgrino, the format of the program allows for an extended
discussion with the guests on various topics of interest in our world today. Far from
the usual "sound bite" clips seen each night on the local news, THE HOUR offers the
viewer an extended look into the subject matter being presented during each episode
of the show. The show is currently in its 6th season.
