Franklin’s popular web series is coming to broadcast early in 2015.

  • Austin’s KLRU-TV is producing a documentary series about barbecue culture with local meat legend Aaron Franklin. Called BBQ With Franklin, the show will be based on KLRU’s web series of the same name, which the station launched in 2012 for PBS Digital Studios. The program will air in early 2015 and be made available through national distribution. KLRU has lined up digital-coupon outlet RetailMeNot as the show’s first sponsor.
