Series: Deep Dish Cooks Up a Second Series

Independent producers and Public Access stations were so excited by the first Deep Dish TV series that a meeting was held in New York to create the Deep Dish TV Satellite Network and to plan a second series. This series, launched in 1988 consisted of 13 one-hour and 4 half hour programs. The production process was also more geographically diverse that the first series. Producer in all parts of the country were asked to suggest ideas for compilation programs based on a dominant series theme or idea. Each show was coordinated from a different region of the country: from Boston to San Diego, Portland to Tampa. The final tapes were put together in Deep Dish TV's New York office and uplinked to satellite for broadcast on Public Access channels.

Topics in the 17 shows include labor struggles, the Latino experience in the U.S. agriculture, the effects of war, the border and immigration, AIDs and the battle for health care, housing, aging, women's video, farmworkers, free trade and what kind of democracy is represented in the U.S. election process.
