The team of BCTV is pleased to announce that our new literary TV series, Books du Jour, will premiere tonight on LIFE 25 (TWC) at 9: 30 pm. While Frank Debonair is gathering new cases to investigate for "Book Case TV," we thought in the meantime that we would come up with a new exciting format to promote the publishing industry and its massive rank of authors. We created "Books du Jour" in a co-production with NYC Media and landed a nine-episode deal for a first season.
"Books du Jour" has a simple premise: the host, Frederic Colier, invites three authors to lunch to talk about their books and life at large in one of Manhattan's finest restaurants.
The first episode, "Across the Universe and Back," shot at the Riverpark restaurant, overlooking the East river, had on its menu, Joshua Henkin (The World Without You), Ayana Mathis (The Twelve Tribes of Hattie), and Gary Shteyngart (Little Failure: a Memoir).
We understand that 30 minutes is not much time to have lunch and appreciate the food, but the guests had fun, and no one complained about bad indigestion.
We need your support and feedback as we migrate quickly towards syndication.
