This American Life Goes Hollywood (or Something Like That)




This Amer­i­can Life, a slight­ly quirky but always com­pelling radio show, has devel­oped a large and fierce­ly ded­i­cat­ed audi­ence since it first aired in 1995. And nowa­days, the pro­gram, host­ed by Ira Glass, is one of the most pop­u­lar pod­casts on iTunes. (It cur­rent­ly ranks #2 on the most pop­u­lar pod­cast list: iTunes  Feed  Web Site.) On March 22, This Amer­i­can Life will take the next step in its evo­lu­tion when Show­time airs a tele­vised ver­sion of the pro­gram. If you’re a fan who is won­der­ing what the show might look like on TV — how they might trans­late the feel of the show to a visu­al medi­um — below you can find a cou­ple of trail­ers that will give you a quick taste:

  • I must be the only per­son who thinks that every sin­gle episode of TAL is depress­ing and sad… it’s all about squashed dreams, cop­ing with fam­i­ly mem­bers, and mourn­ing. I can’t bear to lis­ten to the radio show any­more, so no chance am I going to both­er watch­ing it on a screen.
