The Italian Americans chronicles four generations of Italian American lives, from the massive wave of immigration in the 19th century to current day. The new four-part PBS series reveals the unique Italian American experience through the eyes of both famous and everyday Italian Americans and challenges some pervasive stereotypes. The show premeries on WTTW11 on Tuesday, Feb. 17 at 9:00 pm. We talk with the award-winning writer and producer of the series, John Maggio.
