Los Angeles’ KCET-TV, the country’s largest independent public television station after it dropped its PBS affiliation last fall, has partnered with Dominique Bigle’s Eyetronics Media and Studios. The venture will be funded by Eyetronics Media and Studios, which pledges $50 million in financing for original programming, acquisitions and distribution over the next five years. The series will be produced and broadcast by KCET, with the first five slated to begin production by the end of the year. The initial slate includes programs that explore Hollywood entertainment, Los Angeles restaurants and academic research. The new venture’s programs will also utilize assets in Eyetronics’ Classic Cool Library, which includes more than 3,000 titles, footage, newsreels, cartoons, serials, documentaries, TV movies and series.
