   KCETLink Media Group President & CEO Michael Riley was clear at a recent event held at the residence of the British Consul General in Southern California: There is a strong Public Television commitment to local programming and quality productions that are imported from all over the world. One thing is quite evident; there remains a strong relationship between KCET and British television. With the unabashed popularity of Downton Abbey and Doc Martin, among others, this is indeed great news for fans of smart and intelligent programs on television.

One of its stars, Ian McNeice (Bert Large), assured party-goers their will be a Season 8, which will start production early in 2017. McNeice also invited viewers of the program to England to enjoy the creative process that goes into the making of Doc Martin! By the way, at KCET.org/DocMartin, you can watch behind-the-scenes video shorts, enjoy episode recaps, and reacquaint yourself with the quirky cast of characters that makes up the residents of the sleepy Cornish village of Portwenn.

   Among the attendees included actress Marion Ross, best known for her role as the mother of Richie Cunningham in Happy Days; Cinecon’s Maureen Solomon; stand-up comic Linda Gacsko; and Val Zavala, KCET’s vice president of news and public affairs, and anchor of the network’s SoCal Connected. Zavala was the executive producer of the hugely popular Things That Aren’t Here Anymore documentary series that was hosted by the late Ralph Story back in the 1990s.

The event was thrown in conjunction with BAFTA, Pleasant Holidays, and Beverly Hilton Hotel, part of a partnership with KCET and their on-going fundraising drive for public television. KCET remains the nation’s largest independent public television station, and a nonprofit 501(c3) organization.
