More 'Med'

Daily Variety reports CBS has renewed freshman drama "Presidio Med" for a full first season, although it will be pre-empted in December and given a re-launch in January.

CBS's "Robbery Homicide Division," pre-empted Friday night for a "CSI" rerun, remains on the fence. CBS will give it a shot Saturdays at 10 p.m. this week and Dec. 7. "The Agency" will get a try Friday at 10 p.m. Dec. 6.

WQED program plans

At Thursday's WQED board meeting, senior vice president of production and technology Deborah Acklin said the station's French and Indian War documentary is still in development.

She said the station has begun discussion with filmmakers who could potentially bring the film to the small screen. There's also the possibility that WQED will partner with PBS's "American Experience" to produce the film.

WQED Multimedia president George Miles said the project is funded for development through March. During that time, the station will try to raise funds to produce the program.

Acklin said a business and ethics series may be in the offing for the station, and two more music concerts for national airing on PBS will be taped in Pittsburgh in January.

With the hiring of Betsy Benson as new editor of Pittsburgh magazine, Acklin said the publication will be redesigned and the content re-evaluated.

At Thursday's board meeting, only a dozen of the approximately 30 board members attended. Without quorum, the board was unable to adopt a resolution revising the board's committees to match the organization's restructuring that was announced earlier this fall. An attempt to get "unanimous consent" from the board will be made in the near future.

Holiday programming

The calls have already started from readers who want to know when the Post-Gazette will publish its annual listing of Christmas and holiday specials. As always, that comprehensive list will be published in the Thanksgiving Day edition of the PG.
