UCLA Launches Digital Archive for “In the Life” TV Show
The UCLA Film and Television Archive have launched a digital archive featuring resources from the LGBT show “In the Life”.
“Created by John Scagliotti in 1992, ‘In the Life’ began as a variety-type show, but quickly evolved into a newsmagazine format, becoming an award-winning and respected source for LGBT journalism at a time when lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people were often invisible in media. Produced by In The Life Media, the series was the first — and remains the only — LGBT newsmagazine broadcast on public TV. “In the Life” ran in more than 200 markets around the country; its final episode aired in December 2012. The archive has 15 seasons of the show available online now. All 21 seasons — along with outtakes, interviews and other significant video content —will be available this fall.”
