At the end of July, the Television Critics Association held their annual summer Press Tour, and the PBS team was on the scene to present their upcoming slate of new programming—including our new series Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum—to a packed audience, filled with over 200 journalists and media professionals.

The Xavier Riddle panel was made up of author Brad Meltzer, PBS’s VP of Children’s Programming Linda Simensky, Cornell Professor and Historian Margaret Washington, and Olympic legend and gold medalist Jacqueline Joyner-Kersee. This renowned team of experts took the audience on a riveting tour of the new Xavier Riddle series, diving deeper into the main messages and key themes that the series will explore.  

Though we can’t share all the details from the panel discussion, we did manage to compile as many of the tweets that we could find covering the presentation, into an inspiration-packed highlight reel for your viewing pleasure.
