BCTV stands for Book Case TV and is currently planning its Season 3 for NYC Life. During Season 2, we assembled a broad panel of fascinating guests, such as Lee Child, Naomi Wolf, Amy Sohn, Sapphire, among many others.
The format for the third season will also differ from the previous ones. For a start our series slate expands from 12 to 18 episodes. 6 will broadcast during the summer and a further 12 during the Fall. We are of course retaining out 30 minute format. Although the main focus of our program remains the author interviews, we have incorporated several eclectic and entertaining segments. For example in “Book World,” each week, we cover an aspect of the publishing industry. This segment may deal with an E-book distributor, a visit to a publisher, or report major publishing news. In “POTW” (as we like to refer to it), which stands for Pick of The Week, our host, Frederic Colier, shares his opinion about a wide selection of new releases. A new segment, Book Case Connection will give our audience members the opportunity to have their own personal stories read.
Shooting for Season 3 will kick off in May. The program will air on Sundays on NYC Life (Channel 25). The day after an episode airs, it will go straight on VOD (free) via NYC Life’s website.
To promote our program we created two commercials, both currently airing on NYC Life and in all NYC cabs, Pencils and Noir Fatal. If you missed them on NYC Life, you can still watch them too and view our archives by visiting our Youtube channel or our blog here below.
Max Shuppert and Frederic Colier are the executive producers of the program.
