Manny P. here…

   It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Public Television. The programming is crisp, intelligent, and worldly. One of my favorite weekly shows is Doc Martin. 54 episodes have aired on ITV in the United Kingdom between 2004 and 2015. It’s star, Martin Clunes, is a past winner of a BAFTA for his role in Men Behaving Badly; and earlier this year, he was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to drama, charity, and the community.

   Early in January 2016, I have been graciously invited by KCETLink Media Group to the British Consul General’s residence to celebrate KCET’s new season of Doc Martin, the public television station’s highest rated show among its six million Southern California viewers. Joining the festivities is special guest Ian McNeice (the show’s Bert Large), who will be available for interviews during the event. Also in attendance will be Marion Ross from Happy Days, KCETLink Media Group President & CEO Michael Riley, BAFTA’s Sandro Monetti, and more. The event, thrown in conjunction with BAFTA, Pleasant Holidays, and the Beverly Hilton Hotel, will be a fundraiser for KCET as part of their on-going drive in support of public television. KCET is the nation’s largest independent public television station, and a nonprofit 501(c3) organization.

   In addition to covering the red carpet, I will be attending a cocktail reception. Also on tap, a sneak peak of Season Seven of Doc Martin. I’m very excited to be celebrating the launch with loyal viewers and donors.

   The new season of Doc Martin will premiere on January 14th, 2016 at 8p (pst). Needless to say, Doctor Martin Ellingham’s surly exploits in fictional Portwenn is must-see television for me each Thursday.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
