Due to popular demand from our viewers, West Virginia PBS will air the three-part Masterpiece Mystery! series "Silk" in October. West Virginia PBS pre-empted the series in September because of a fund-raising campaign.

The series will air on Thursday nights, Oct. 3rd, 10th and 17th, at 9 p.m.

"West Virginia PBS always appreciates feedback regarding our programming decisions and we always make every attempt to listen to our viewers and make adjustments accordingly," said Craig Lanham, director of TV Programming.

"Silk" is a modern, fast-paced legal drama following the conflicts, passions and intrigues of criminal law, starring Maxine Peak (Little Dorrit) and Rupert Penry-Jones (The 39 Steps) as rival barristers with very different work styles. Written by Peter Moffat (Criminal Justice).
