Ebert’s New Show Premieres This Weekend!

Roger Ebert’s new show, Ebert Presents At the Movies, debuts this week on PBS stations across the country. The original show was an inspiration and a guide to me and I am honored beyond words to be invited to contribute to the new one. I’ll be tuning in this weekend, and I’ll let you know when I will be on.
