Bill Moyers has received preliminary approval for a new PBS series tentatively called “Something Different with Bill Moyers,” reports Decoder.
In the year since Mr. Moyers announced his retirement, the House voted to defund National Public Radio, leading some to believe PBS was one sting video away from the chopping block. But there are a few rich Democrats left in town–the Carnegie Corporation voted to grant Mr. Moyers two million for the series.
Jon Meachem, meanwhile, must have his hands full with that Al Gore book–his first acquisition for Random House since departing Newsweek. He’s stepping down from co-anchoring “Need to Know,” but will remain the show’s essayist.
