WCIU launching new kids show

WCIU-TV is launching a new locally-produced Saturday morning children’s show called Green Screen Adventures, in which Chicago Public School students’ stories will be transformed into real-life television experiences. The show will use the same green-screen technology used in TV weather reports, hence the name Green Screen Adventures.

The program airs Saturday morning at 7 a.m. and meets the educational requirements mandated by the FCC. All brodacast stations must air a minimum of three hours of educational programming per week.
