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.

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.
