Thirteen/WNET wins grant for theater docu

New York-based Thirteen/WNET has received an $ 800,000 challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to produce a national documentary series on the American theater.

In order to get the grant, the station must raise a minimum of $ 2.4 million — or three dollars for every dollar of grant money. This marks only the second grant the NEA has awarded to a public television station to initiate a national series.

The first such grant also went to Thirteen/WNET in 1988 for the production of the eight-part series “Dancing,” which ran in spring 1993.

This new docu, titled “Theater in America,” will premiere nationally on PBS in 1996.
