Big News Y’all! Two for the Road is Coming to TV Nationwide!

Hey guys! Big news to tell y’all about. BIG news! And we’re so stinkin’ excited we can’t stand it.

Okay, let’s get right to the important stuff first, and then we’ll dive a little deeper into the details. And here goes: we are beyond excited to announce that the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA) has selected Two for the Road for national distribution to more than 350 public television stations and educational entities across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Which means that YES! Our little travel show will be made available to public television stations from coast-to-coast and beyond, potentially reaching tens of millions of people across this great land of ours, on one of the country’s most respected, most widely available broadcast networks. Two for the Road is going nationwide! How cool is that?

Okay! So How Can I Get Two for the Road in My Market?

Excellent question! And the simple answer: we’re gonna need your help to make it happen. Yes, it’s true that our show will be distributed nationwide throughout the public television system, but still it’s up to each individual station to decide whether they want to actually carry the program. That built-in local flexibility is one of the many very cool things about the public television system, as it allows stations to choose programs they feel are best suited to their individual communities. But it makes it kinda tough for independent producers like us. It means that we have to contact and lobby each one of these stations and convince them to actually run our show. And with more than 350 stations in the system? Well, as you can imagine, that’s a mighty tough task for just the two of us. So we need a hand.

If you don’t see your market/station on the list, here’s what you can do. And we would so appreciate it! Contact your local public television (PBS) station via email or through social media, and tell them you want to see Two for the Road in your market! (You can always contact them by phone, but we’ve been told that the stations/programmers prefer email as a means of direct communication. Which we totally get.) And when you do, we’ve actually prepared a little something to help you figure out what to say. Just copy and paste this message in your email if you like, and please please feel free to add your own thoughts!

Hello! I’m writing to ask that you carry an inspiring new adventure travel show called Two for the Road in our market. It will feed from NETA on December 29th. For more information and to screen full episodes, contact producers Nik and Dusty Green at: stations@twofortheroad.com. Thank you!

Better still, offer to become a sustaining member of your local public television station! The ONLY reason we’re able to bring you our show – and do this all ourselves – is because of the public television system and the many, many good people who work so hard to bring you quality, community-focused television (like the folks at our presenting station, Panhandle PBS). And we’re so thankful and proud to be a part of the public television family! So we hope you’ll consider supporting your local station with an ongoing contribution.

Cheers y’all! Thanks again for all the love and support! We’ll continue to keep you up to date. Turns out, this grand adventure is only beginning. 🙂

    I just saw your 1st Antartica adventure episode on KQED in the S.F. bay area. I’m an avid PBS viewer and although most if not all the travel shows are interesting & informative, to see one with a regular couple and seeing your enthusiasm and excitement for what your doing is very cool indeed. Keep up the good work, don’t change a thing and I’m sure you will be successful for many years to come.
    Thanks,
    Matthew B.

    • Hey Matthew!
      Thanks so very much for your message and your kind words! Too cool. It means more to us than you know! We’re really glad you enjoyed the episode and hope you’ll get a chance to see more. And we’d really appreciate it if you’d drop KQED a line and let them know too! Working in the PBS universe is a tough task and we’re in constant need of all the support we can muster. 🙂 In any event, thanks again and please stay in touch! Cheers!
