Series to premiere Thursday, January 16 at 7 p.m.

Over the past 18 months, Texas filmmakers Carl and Betsy Crum have been producing a nine-part series titled One Square Mile: Texas (OSMTX). The square miles featured are Silverton, Nacogdoches, Dallas, Midland, Port Isabel, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and El Paso.

For the One Square Mile: Texas series, the husband and wife filmmakers approached nine distinct square miles across the Lone Star State. The purpose of the series is to explore what life actually is like for the people living and working in these square miles and to shed light on what it actually means to be Texan in contemporary American culture. 

One Square Mile: Texas will air on all 12 Texas PBS stations, and will premiere on Panhandle PBS Thursday, January 16 at 7 p.m. The episode featuring Silverton will broadcast Thursday, February 6 at 7 p.m., and features scenes from the Malt Shop, Silverton Oil Co., Silverton School, FFA stock pens, and more.

The One Square Mile: Texas series was made possible with the sponsorship of Best Maid Products, Southwest Airlines, Woats Oatsnack, Alamo Drafthouse and Texas Photomontage.

The presenting station for the series is KLRU - Austin. The fiscal sponsor of the series is the Southwest Alternate Media Project - Houston.
