WHO: David Perry’s 10 Percent TV
Celebrates its historic 300th Episode
— LGBT TV Show is Longest Running in California History
Monday, December 14: 5pm – 9pm
Catch Restaurant: 2362 Market Street (at Castro), San Francisco
In 2009, David Perry created a new LGBT centric TV show. His premiere guest was the Right Rev. Otis Charles – first openly gay bishop on earth. Since then, Perry has interviewed artists, activists, politicians and priests in long-form conversations in the style of Charlie Rose: people, stories and issues of interest to the LGBT Community. Airing throughout California on Comcast Hometown Network channel 104 and internationally live-streamed online, David Perry’s 10 Percent is the longest running LGBT TV show in California history.
“It has been my honor to bring so many stories to the screen,” said Perry, 54, a San Francisco resident and media professional for almost 30 years. “Our issues are society’s issues and TV is still the public forum where those issues are aired and discussed.”
In a contrast with past shows, the landmark 300th episode features Perry in the hot-seat: being interviewed by Comcast Upside host Karli Mullane. In addition, the 300th episode will take a look back at some of Perry’s most memorable interviews including conversations with Tales of the City author Armistead Maupin, famed attorney and marriage equality advocate Kate Kendell, Yigat Pura of Top Chef Desserts, the original “Catwoman” from Batman Julie Newmar, X Factor sensation Jason Brock and Bobby Rivers of VH-1 fame.
The 300th episode debuts on Wednesday, December 16 at 7pm on Comcast Hometown Network Channel 104 and can also be watched live streaming at http://www.chnlivestreaming.tv/. A party at San Francisco’s historic Catch restaurant will mark the occasion with a special preview showing. San Francisco Board of Supervisors President London Breed will present Perry with a special proclamation to mark the occasion.
