Lifecasters is a multiplatform PBS media pilot that explores the yet-untold dramatic stories of Americans living beyond the spotlight, outside of the mainstream. Compelling people whose life experience defies categorization and who contribute rarely heard, unique voices to our culture.
In the pilot episode of Lifecasters, award-winning filmmakers work with a Lifecaster subject to tell a multi-layered story. In the one-hour broadcast, the filmmakers dramatically profile the Lifecaster subject, with some subjects providing diary footage of their own behind-closed-door experiences. Audiences will travel in and out of the subject’s life with the opportunity to add their comments in the Lifecasters site, which highlights other aspects of the subjects’ lives and worlds.
