Additional highlights include the debut of the new series WE'LL MEET AGAIN (Tuesdays, January 23-February 27) with Ann Curry, which explores some of history's most dramatic events through the personal stories of those who experienced them, reuniting people whose lives intersected at pivotal moments (view clip here). NATURE's three-part miniseries Animals with Cameras (Wednesdays, January 31-February 14) is a fascinating look at the secret lives of animals, filmed where no human cinematographers can go.

The arts continue to shine on PBS with the premiere of TONY BENNETT: THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS GERSHWIN PRIZE FOR POPULAR SONG (Friday, January 12); GREAT PERFORMANCES concerts from the groundbreaking artists Nas (Friday, February 2) and will.i.am, as he reunites with the Black Eyed Peas for Landmarks Live in Concert: AGREAT PERFORMANCESSpecial (Friday, April 13); and Live From Lincoln Center Presents at the Appel Room (beginning Spring 2018), a concert miniseries that puts a spotlight on Stephanie J. Block, Sutton Foster, Leslie Odom Jr., and Andrew Rannells with four new episodes, one for each performer, illuminating their journeys to musical stardom, revisiting favorite songs and offering glimpses of future projects.

PBS will also be home to supersized event programming this season, with the nine-part CIVILIZATIONS (Tuesdays, April 17-May 15, June TBA), which tells the story of art from the dawn of human history to the present day - for the first time on a global scale - and THE GREAT AMERICAN READ (Tuesday, May 22), which kicks off a national campaign to choose America's Best-Loved Book.

PBS will honor Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and recognize the 50th anniversary of King's assassination with a slate of programs that celebrate his legacy, including the Academy Award-nominated film from INDEPENDENT LENS, I Am Not Your Negro (Monday, January 15). The film examines the lives and successive assassinations of three of James Baldwin's close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. Programs airing around Dr. King's birthday and in honor of Black History Month include AMERICAN MASTERS Lorraine Hansberry: Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart, about the A Raisin in the Sun playwright (Friday, January 19), INDEPENDENT LENS Winnie, about the wife of Nelson Mandela (Monday, February 5) and an encore broadcast of AMERICAN MASTERS Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise, about the activist, poet and author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (Friday, February 16). In April - the anniversary month of Dr. King's assassination - PBS presents encore broadcasts of Dr. Henry Louis Gates' BLACK AMERICA SINCE MLK: AND STILL I RISE (Tuesday, April 3 and Wednesday, April 4) and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE Roads to Memphis (Wednesday, April 4).

PBS will present its Winter/Spring programming slate during presentations at the Television Critics Association Press Tour on Tuesday, January 16, and Wednesday, January 17, and will include appearances by Angela Lansbury, Emily Watson, Maya Hawke, Annes Elwy, Willa Fitzgerald and Kathryn Newton from MASTERPIECE's Little Women, plus Benjamin Bratt and activist Dolores Huerta, PBS icon Bill Nye, acclaimed director Stanley Nelson and more.
