"If I'd gone to other places, any other place, you wouldn't have an in house television channel, that's a marvelous thing for those of us in the community who have been involved with film and television and continue to be creative."

"The late writer-director-producer Melville Shavelson, who was on the fund's board, first started talking about the channel 15 years ago with Ken Scherer, CEO of the MPTF Foundation. 'His first idea was to have a radio station,' Scherer said. 'That didn't make much sense to me because most of the people here are from film and television. 'What executive producer Jennifer Clymer has been able to do is engage the residents,' said Scherer. 'We have shows where some residents create animation, we have shows where they tell jokes and shows where they read poetry. It has been incredible.' "
