The Television Academy Foundation today announced its partnership with Netflix to present The Power of TV: A Conversation with Norman Lear and One Day at a Time, the first ticketed, public program ever held at the Wolf Theatre, at the Saban Media Center on Monday, June 19, 2017, at 7:00 PM.

Marking the 20th Anniversary of the Foundation's Archive of American Television, the event also celebrates the growth of the Archive and its rebranding as The Interviews: An Oral History of Television. The Power of TV: A Conversation with Norman Lear and One Day at a Time will kick off the Foundation's new public program and will showcase footage from The Interviews to highlight the career and contributions of four-time Emmy Award winner Norman Lear (All in the Family, Sanford and Son, The Jeffersons, Good Times, Maude), emphasizing the pro-social themes throughout his body of work. A special focus will be the groundbreaking revival of one of his most popular shows, Netflix's One Day at a Time (2017) and a lively exchange with the series co-creators and executive producers Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce, and stars Justina Machado, Emmy- Oscar- Tony- Grammy Award winner Rita Moreno, Todd Grinnell, Isabella Gomez, Marcel Ruiz and Stephen Tobolowsky.
