It has been a hub for linking thousands of artists, independent videomakers, programmers, and social activists. The network has produced and distributed over 300 hours of television series that challenge the supprssion of awareness, the curruption of language, and the perversion of logic that characterizes so much of commercial media. With humor, passion, creative flair and very low budgets, Deep Dish TV artists and producers have developed provocative video series exploring issues that profoundly impact our lives.
