PENSACOLA, Fla., June 8, 2015 – Thursday is the night to watch local TV shows on WSRE, and several new episodes of the PBS station’s original productions are premiering this summer. New editions of “Conversations with Jeff Weeks” and WSRE’s “StudioAmped” music series will air beginning June 18. “In Your Own Backyard,” which has been off WSRE’s regular schedule for more than a year, will return with all new episodes throughout July.
 
“Conversations” looks into the lives and accomplishments of noteworthy people. New episodes will premiere Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. featuring interviews with filmmaker Rory Kennedy, actor and writer Thom Gossom, marine wildlife artist Guy Harvey, editorial cartoonist Andy Marlette, West Point professor Lt. Col. Daniel Gade and NBA basketball player Reggie Evans.
 
Debuting its seventh season on Thursdays at 9 p.m., “StudioAmped” broadcasts the original music of regional bands as performed live from the WSRE Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio stage. Featured artists in order of appearance: The Rips, Lauren Kay, Noiseheads, Willie Sugarcapps, Continuum, Sway Jah Vu and Jeff Glickman & The Panhandle All Stars.
 
“In Your Own Backyard,” hosted by Sherri Hemminghaus Weeks, spotlights unique events and attractions. The program’s “Blue Angels Air Shows” episode recently won the bronze Telly Award for excellence and creativity in TV production. New episodes, including “Undersea Northwest Florida,” “Air Force Armament Museum,” “Pensacon” and “Festivals,” will air on Thursdays in July at 7 p.m.
 
The regular schedule will be preempted from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 9 for “Legislative Review: Dialogue with the Delegation,” which airs at the start and end of each legislative session to address important issues with Northwest Florida lawmakers. Questions for legislators may be submitted in advance by email to questions@wsre.org with name and city of residence.
