PBS’ ‘Frontline’ is currently developing a program on the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, slated to air on PBS in the coming month. It will be available for licensing to the international marketplace by PBS International.

The Quake (w/t), a one-off one-hour doc is produced by ‘Frontline’ veteran correspondent Martin Smith and will focus on Haiti’s rebuilding effort. PBS International also holds worldwide distribution rights to Égalité for All: Toussaint Louverture & The Haitian Revolution which recounts the Revolution of 1790 – a movement that’s been called the true birth moment of universal human rights which used the ideas of the French Revolutionary to create the world’s first Black republic.
