In 2018, SEC Network debuted TrueSouth, its first foray into lifestyle programming. The Southern food and culture series is executive produced by ESPN The Magazine’s Wright Thompson and is written and hosted by Grady MFA Narrative Nonfiction faculty mentor John T. Edge. The show follows Edge as he travels around the region, introducing viewers to Southern tastemakers, food, culture and history. The second episode focused on Athens and featured Valerie Boyd, founder and co-director of the Grady MFA Program, and adjunct journalism lecturer Andre Gallant (ABJ ’10, MFA ’17). Join Boyd, Edge, and Gallant for a screening of the episode and discussion. Grady faculty member Vicki Michaelis, the Carmical Chair in Sports Journalism & Society, will moderate.
