Trio Sets Music-Themed August


Continuing its month-long themed programming strategy, Trio will offer a bevy
of music-based original and acquired programming throughout the month of

Trio's 'Hot Summer Nights' programming stunt will feature music from nearly
240 bands, musical films, original specials and documentaries, network
executives said.

The centerpiece of the network's daily primetime block is Trio's 10-hour
Jazzfest 2002: The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival marathon, hosted by
Grammy Award-nominated recording artist India.Arie.
Also part of the schedule
are documentaries and specials featuring The Who, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello and
U2, as well as a made-for-television original opera based on the death of
Princess Diana, the network said.
