Christy Lemire of The Associated Press and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of Mubi.com are co-hosts of "Ebert Presents at the Movies." The two experienced and respected critics also introduce special segments featuring other contributors and the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Roger Ebert.
The new weekly program debuts Jan. 21 on public television stations in 48 of the top 50 markets, representing more than 90% national coverage. It is produced in Chicago at WTTW, where Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert began taping "Sneak Previews" some 35 years ago.
The executive producer of the program is Roger's wife, Chaz. It is directed by Don Dupree, who logged fifteen years as director of "Siskel & Ebert" and "Ebert & Roeper." The new show is distributed nationwide by American Public Television (APT).
