A Hunting Accident or Something Sinister? Watch Vera on WLRN-TV.

Vera: The Deer Hunters (10 pm)

DCI Vera Stanhope and DS Joe Ashworth investigate the murder of Shane Thurgood who was killed at close range from a shot from a high-powered rifle. Thurgood was born and raised in the area but had only recently returned after the death of his grandfather to settle matters related to the estate. According to Thurgood's solicitor, Thurgood had planned to sell his grandfather's farm to the Peytons and had only recently pulled out of a deal where he would have received 20% over the asking price because he had fallen back in love with the countryside where he grew up. Suspicion initially falls on Allen Barnes, gamekeeper for the Peyton estate. However the death proves to be anything but calculated and concerned less with romance than with a long-standing rural tradition.

WLRN-TV Receives Suncoast Emmy Award for Deep City: The Birth of the Miami Sound.

WLRN's original documentary DEEP CITY wins big at the Suncoast Emmy Awards!

WLRN received an EMMY Award for Deep City: The Birth of the Miami Sound during the 38th Annual Suncoast Emmy Awards on Saturday, December 13th, at the Westin Beach Resort in Ft. Lauderdale.   Deep City won best documentary under the category of Nostalgia Programs and was amongst a record 1,232 entries submitted from all over the region including Alabama, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia and Puerto Rico.  Congrats to WLRN and the producing team Dennis Scholl, Marlon Johnson and Chad Tingle.  

"Deep City" is an inspirational one-hour story that explores the early days of soul music in Florida, the era’s pioneers and their lasting contributions to the broader American musical landscape. During the mid-1960s, producers Willie Clarke and Johnny Pearsall masterminded Deep City Records. Both from the streets of Miami, they honed the business and musical skills learned in college and went on to change the face of soul music in Miami and eventually the country by creating the first black-owned record label in Florida. "Deep City" delves into the life and times of these groundbreaking producers, their label, the artists they spawned and the remarkable era in which they accomplished it.

Deep City: The Birth of the Miami Sound has also been well received by notable film festivals, such as SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX, Cleveland International Film Festival and Miami International Film Festival.
