A CPTV Original series, The Kate presents bold performers with something to say.

By way of delicate beauty or razor-sharp wit, they captivate audiences with a revelatory charisma and irresistible charm akin to the feisty spirit of our muse, Ms. Hepburn.

The six-part, 60-minute, public television series premieres nationally in 2016.

Beginning in February 2016 and airing nationally, Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) offers a new national music series, The Kate, with a dynamic lineup featuring bold performers with something to say, just like series’ namesake, Katharine Hepburn. First season performers include Ann Wilson (of Heart), Rickie Lee Jones, and former Saturday Night Live star Ana Gasteyer. Viewers can be part of the live audience; tickets are on sale online at thekate.tv.

Shot at Old Saybrook’s Katharine Hepburn Cultural Arts Center, The Kate offers smart, gutsy performances. This national music series steps away from the traditional music series format to create a true connection between the performer and the audience.
