Producing for Arizona PBS

Current and past national productions include Desert Dreams: Celebrating Five Seasons in the Sonoran Desert, The Texas Tenors, and Steven Caras - See Them Dance.

Local Production

Producing local programs that connect Arizona PBS viewers with their community is a key part of our mission as a public broadcaster. Arizona PBS' local productions provide a point of discussion where citizens can come together to learn about each other and the world we share.

Whether it's a new artist featured on Artbeat Nation, an issue of concern for Arizonans on Arizona Horizon or Horizonte, the latest author interview for Books & Co., Arizona PBS' local producers are committed to bringing you programs that are fact-based, insightful and representative of a variety of perspectives.
