Here is the trailer for the pilot.

The following is the press release for the two new episodes to be filmed on the 15th.

Participate in a New, National PBS Opinion Show!
The Smith Family Foundation Debate Series has become Two-Way Street

Two-Way Street is a new, nationally syndicated PBS debate program that will feature an exciting new element: YOU

The premise of the title Two-Way Street is that unlike most policy programs where the communication is one-way -- pundits talking to the audience -- here the live studio audience will get to talk back and question the pundits. And that's where you come in!

We'd like to invite you to be a part of one of our upcoming programs:

FIRST TOPIC: "Drug Use Should Be Decriminalized" - 2:45pm


SECOND TOPIC: "Corporate Farming is Bad for Your Health" - 12:15pm

DATE: Thursday, October 15

TIME: Arrive at either 12:15pm or 2:45pm

LOCATION: Midtown Manhattan



So if you'd like to be a part of a show...
Forward your name, organization or affiliation, email address, phone number, and choice of topic to:

[address removed]

Seating is limited so we will be filling the audience on a first come, first serve basis. (Also, if you'd like to share with us a sentence or two of your thoughts on the topic, that would be great.)

There are no guarantees, but if we have space, we'll write you back with the precise location information & other details. Get those clever questions ready, and we hope to see you soon!
