PBS will bring a new Ken Burns project to air on October 2, 2011.
The latest from Burns and exec producing partner Lynn Novick, “Prohibition,” will effectively kick off the 2011-12 season for PBS on Oct. 2, running for three consecutive nights at two hours a night. Peter Coyote will narrate the documentary about drinking and the lack thereof during the early 20th-century ban on liquor, with Wynton Marsalis providing music and Tom Hanks, Jeremy Irons, Paul Giamatti, John Lithgow, Samuel L. Jackson and Patricia Clarkson among those contributing voice roles.
