SERGIO MENDES & FRIENDS: A CELEBRATION will make its world premiere as part of special programming on PBS stations in June 2021 – please check local listings to search for the day/date/time for your local PBS station. We will also update this page as stations across the country sign on to air the special. This program, presented by WNED PBS, is a joyfully tuneful salute to the pioneering Brazilian musical artist, producer, composer, keyboardist, vocalist and Oscar®-nominated songwriter created especially for PBS and contains approx 59 minutes of material derived from the forthcoming feature documentary Sergio Mendes: In The Key Of Joy by acclaimed filmmaker John Scheinfeld (The U.S. vs John Lennon, Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary, and The Happy Days of Garry Marshall).
Viewers who support their local PBS station at different levels of contribution during the June member drive will have an opportunity to receive thank you gifts that include the full length documentary on DVD or download, as well as Sergio Mendes music cds and downloads.
