Catch PDX Story Theater’s new series, Urban Tellers® on cable TV!

Liz Vaughan joined our team as videographer in 2017 and wanted to make a TV series that would give people even more access to the real, true stories of the people of Portland.  It launches on October 1st via Open Signal, Portland’s Community Media Center. There are six episodes with two stories each, starting with Sukita Crimmel and Lynn Fitch.

Building on our brand, Portland Story Theater’s new cable-access TV show is called “Urban Tellers®.” The series is filmed and produced by Liz’s company Dead Tech Productions. There will be six episodes in the fall season, beginning on Sunday, October 1st, with a new episode airing every other Sunday after that. Each episode will feature two complete stories from our 2016-17 season at the Fremont Theater.

The episodes will be aired on channels 11, 22 and 23. Check your TV Guide for info on which channel to go to, depending on whether you have Comcast or Centurylink.  Channel 11 is CAN, Channels 22 and 23 are ITN.

      Hi Donn, Don’t believe that there is a way to watch it on TV unless you are in the Portland metro area. You can watch videos on our YouTube channel on your computer (Not quite the same… but the best we can offer you in Dallas.) Here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/pdxstorytheater
      Cheers! Lawrence
