At 10:30 p.m., Thursday, January 12, the 10th season of the HoustonPBS nationally syndicated award-winning series, InnerVIEWS with Ernie Manouse, launches with an all-new lineup. Currently airing on more than 100 PBS stations throughout the country, Emmy award-winning host Ernie Manouse continues his conversations with guests from across the pop landscape. Joining Manouse this season are actors Kate Walsh and Marsha Mason, Rocker Gene Simmons and PBS luminaries Jim Lehrer and Bill Moyers to name a few.
“It’s amazing how time flies,” said Manouse. “It seems like just yesterday we sat down with Anne Rice, Patti LuPone and Frankie Avalon to launch our first season, and in little over a month, we will air our 150th episode. As with our other seasons, we continue talking to some of Houston and the nation’s most intriguing cultural icons - from arts to entertainment, from literature to politics – in a season of InnerVIEWS there is always something for everyone!”
Other guests this season include: best-selling author Charlaine Harris (True Blood); Soap Star Kim Zimmer; and legendary photographer Greg Gorman.
“Each episode offers an intimate conversation, where our guests feel comfortable enough to share their unique, personal, and surprising life stories in a warm, comfortable and open way unique to television interviews,” continues Manouse.
InnerVIEWS with Ernie Manouse airs at 10:30pm every Thursday night on HoustonPBS, with re-broadcasts at 2:30pm on Sundays. For national airdates and times, check with your local PBS stations.
