The segments, written, produced and directed by Jamie Howell of Howell at the Moon Productions in Wenatchee, will focus on regional arts and culture across NCW. They will be featured as part of PIE (kcts9.org/pie), an episodic TV show that assembles stories on art, music, history and the innovative spirit that makes our corner of the world a fascinating and dynamic place.
Howell signed on to produce segments as a correspondent from east of the mountains earlier in 2013. His first two stories will air in January, with a third scheduled for broadcast in February.
The first story, “Pegashizzle,” which debuts on Mon., Jan. 6 at 10 p.m. and airs again on Thurs., Jan. 9 at 7 p.m., features the Pegasus Project (pegasusrides.com), an equine therapy center in Yakima, WA, that decided to make a hip-hop video starring its magical horses to share the remarkable impacts they are having on the lives of NCW riders with disabilities.
The second story, “Moondoggies,” which debuts on Mon., Jan. 13 at 10 p.m. and airs again on Thurs., Jan. 16 at 7 p.m., was shot in the home of Scott and Jenny Erickson of Wenatchee during a house concert by The Moondoggies (moondoggiesmusic.com) and takes a look at the growing popularity of these intimate, home-based performances. All episodes are also available at kcts9.org/pie.
