Actor Anna Deaveare Smith discusses her role as host of the PBS Arts Summer Festival with BTB. The interview was conducted last January at the TCA Press Tour in Los Angeles, where the actor was performing her one-woman-show Let Me Down Easy.
The PBS Arts Summer Festival expands the scope and diversity of the arts on television, with a multi-part weekly series and new original online content that takes viewers across the country and around the world. The Summer Festival kicks off tonight with the ITVS funded documentary Mariachi High, which captures a year in the life of top-ranked members of Zapata High School’s championship mariachi ensemble on the Rio Grande in South Texas.
