Pilot episode of Katz’s Philadelphia documentary airs tonight

    if you didn’t catch one of the public screenings of Sam Katz’s Philadelphia: The Great Experiment, you can see it on TV tonight.

    The formal mayoral candidate has been screening the first in what he hopes to be an eight-part series with the hopes of generating enough revenue to continue producing.

    Tonight’s episode, The Floodgates Open: 1865-1876, focuses on post-Civil War Philadelphia, and airs at 7:30 p.m. on ABC. Commercial-free, by the way.
