E.S.P. TV is dedicated to promoting the performing and media based arts through direct collaboration with artists via live television production.

Directed by Scott Kiernan and Victoria Keddie, this expansive project utilizes a mobile television studio to explore the artist dialogue with broadcast transmission, analog and digital media, and televisual liveness.

E.S.P. TV broadcasts every Tuesday night at 10PM on Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN). Channel 67 in Manhattan, as well as online at www.mnn.org. All episodes are then posted online on our website and Vimeo platforms. E.S.P. TV now also airs on Wednesdays with Comcast Cable 66/966 or Verizon Fios 29/30 in Philadelphia at 11:30PM.

E.S.P. TV has held over 50 live taping events internationally and has aired over 70 episodes to date.

In addition to our live tapings and screenings, we have initiated the TUBE Archive as a means for republishing works and ephemera from early artist-based engagements with broadcast media. In Fall 2014, E.S.P. TV built a mobile broadcast van. In April 2015, we will tour across the United States in our mobile broadcast van in partnership with organizations and artists across the nation.

Each live taping event is the realization of an artists' collaboration with us to create a new work that utilizes broadcast as a central element to the work. These events are taped live with a crew of cameramen, sound engineer, and video mixing team in front of an audience. The recorded events air on Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television weekly, as well as online, and have been exhibited internationally.

Our mission is threefold: to expand on the idea of an artist collaboration and the “live” experience, to preserve television as a relevant outlet for cultural practice, and to create programming that works to deconstruct the categorization of creative communities.

E.S.P. TV has worked with various venues including: The Whitney Museum of American Art, New Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, Printed Matter, Millennium Film Workshop, New School, Rawson Projects, Recess (NYC); Interstate Projects, Spectacle Theater, Issue Project Room, Roulette (Brooklyn); Franklin Street Works (Stamford, CT), Liminal Space (Oakland, CA), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, CA), Ballroom Marfa (Marfa, TX), General Public (Berlin), STORE (Dresden), Studio XX (Montreal), Kling and Bang Gallery (Reykjavik) and Pallas Projects (Dublin).
