Set those DVRs: PBS airing superhero-themed Pioneers of Television

by  in Comic News Comment

PBS’s Pioneers of Television series celebrates “the visionaries who shaped a fledgling medium,” and Tuesday night’s episode is all about superheroes. Covering every decade from the ’50s to the ’80s, it digs into The Adventures of Superman, Batman, Wonder WomanThe Incredible Hulk and The Greatest American Hero. Interviews include Adam West, Burt Ward, Julie Newmar, Lynda Carter, Lou Ferrigno and William Katt. Hopefully they make Julie Newmar and William Katt team up.

To promote the episode, PBS has put a ton of content from it on its website. There’s a preview of the episode, mini-essays about some of the showsexcerpts from some of the interviewsprofiles of the actors and a terrific photo gallery. It’s a great way to kill some time while waiting for the real thing to air.
