Now that the New Yankee Workshop is over, do you still feel the need for a weekly hit of Norm? Did your local PBS station stop airing reruns? Are you too cheap to pay for the DVDs? Yeah, me too. The good news is that the New Yankee Online Website is airing an old episode each week.
From the New Yankee Online website:
Interest remains strongly favorable to these on line versions of the classic New Yankee episodes from the past so we intend to keep them coming as long as we can.
So catch them while you can!
From Fine Woodworking, “the New Yankee Workshop is ending after 21 years on PBS.” But don’t throw out all your plaid shirts yet because Master Carpenter Norm Abram will continue working on This Old House.
“We’ve had a great run, built challenging projects, met wonderful woodworkers and received loyal support from millions of viewers,” Abram said in a statement.
The New Yankee Workshop is a co-production of Morash Associates, Inc. and WGBH Boston. Russell Morash — whose backyard is the secret location of the workshop — is the creator, executive producer, and director of the series. He is also credited with introducing the “how-to” programming concept to television through other celebrated WGBH produced series as This Old House, The Victory Garden, and Julia Child’s The French Chef.
