PBS returns this fall with a slate full of the types of shows that consistently bring the network critical acclaim and viewer raves. Included are ground-breaking documentaries as well as art and music showcases.

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns and co-director Lynn Novick return to the ballpark for “The Tenth Inning,” which picks up where Burns left off on the subject in the 1994 docu series “Baseball.”

Over the course of four hours, the two-part series examines the impact of a gut-wrenching strike and chronic and widespread steroid use among players. The program premieres Sept. 28.

“Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook” documents the work of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Johnny Mercer and Harry Warren, among other songwriters. The three-part series, which premieres Oct. 6, features performances and rare footage as it celebrates American music.

Long-running shows “The American Experience” and “Frontline” team up for “God in America” to document the role of religion in American history and what that means in one of the world’s most religiously diverse nations. That six-hour series debuts Oct. 11.
