New Series Hosted by Author Kelly Corrigan Coming to CET and ThinkTV
Tell Me More with Kelly Corrigan, a new candid and heartfelt interview series hosted by the four-time New York Times bestselling author, premieres Monday, October 5, at 9pm on ThinkTV16 and CET. The series features one-on-one conversations with acclaimed public interest lawyer Bryan Stevenson; late night-host, actor and writer James Corden, and actress and entrepreneur Jennifer Garner.
Kelly Corrigan has been called “the voice of her generation” by O: The Oprah Magazine and “the poet laureate of the ordinary” by HuffPost. She is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Middle Place, Lift, Glitter and Glue, and most recently, Tell Me More.
On the first episode of Tell Me More, Corrigan interviews Bryan Stevenson and addresses how truth can lead to racial reconciliation. Then, on the next episode airing on October 12, she welcomes late-night host James Corden to talk about why he thinks America is in her “teenage years.” The final episode will air on October 19 with actress Jennifer Garner talking about how she inspires others to find their true passions.
A signature segment of the program is Corrigan’s idea to ask her guests for a “Plus Two” – two individuals they personally or professionally know, admire and respect. Through these interviews, viewers will get to see each guest in a new light and discover how we can use our shared experience to make a difference in the world.
“What I most look forward to exploring in Tell Me More is the deep, undeniable connection we share with one another, which is not always as apparent and palpable as it could be,” Corrigan said in a press release. “With more empathy and less judgment, we’re bound to be better versions of ourselves, individually and collectively.”
“In this era of COVID-19, we all have been forced to think hard about what is most important in our lives,” said James Blue, Executive-in-Charge of PBS NEWSHOUR’s special programming, in a press release. “Kelly Corrigan brings compassion to everything she does, and I can think of no one better to engage with her various guests on their foundational values. While social distancing is the order of the day, this program will illustrate our common need for connection.”
In addition to the broadcast premiere, Tell Me More with Kelly Corrigan will also be available to stream on the PBS App and online immediately after each episode airs.
