This American Life on Showtime

This American Life, one of my most favourite podcasts/radio-shows is coming to television.

What would a TV version of This American Life look like? And is making one even a good idea? Believe us, we’ve wondered all of that ourselves. But now we’re done, and we’re super excited. Our first season of half-hour episodes debuts March 22nd on Showtime. We wanted to make a TV show that feels like the radio show, but isn’t just the radio show on TV. Take a look and see what you think. Here’s a trailer we created for public radio station websites, just like this one.

Check out the teaser trailer.

Update: Here’s a second movie trailer.

And here’s an interview with Ira Glass about the new show on NPR’s Fresh Air.
