Producers of New PBS Series Joined By Experts to Reveal Science Behind Happiness
Date:10/8/2009

NEW YORK, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Psychologists and individuals profiled in the new PBS documentary This Emotional Life joined best-selling author and Harvard professor Daniel Gilbert at the Paley Center for Media in New York for a discussion on what scientists have learned about how early life moments can shape a lifetime pursuit of happiness.

"The secrets of happiness aren't secrets anymore," said Gilbert, psychologist and host of the series, which is a co-production of Vulcan Productions and the WGBH/NOVA Science Unit. "As scientists now know, social relationships, more than any other factor, are the key to human happiness."

This Emotional Life unfolds across three, two-hour episodes, exploring ways we can improve our social relationships, cope with negative emotions such as depression and anxiety and become more positive, resilient individuals. Each episode weaves together the compelling personal stories of ordinary people and the latest scientific research, along with revealing comments from celebrities such as Chevy Chase, Larry David, Elizabeth Gilbert, Alanis Morissette, Katie Couric and Richard Gere.

At the midday briefing, Senior Executive Producer Richard Hutton of Vulcan Productions and Executive Producer Dyllan McGee of Kunhardt McGee Productions provided a preview of "Families, Friends and Lovers," the first episode, which explores how human relationships go right, how they go wrong and what we can do to improve them.

"The human stories in this series are deeply moving; they open a window into our very nature, helping us understand why we behave the way we do," said Hutton.

"This Emotional Life is about human connections and understanding how our social interactions are deeply wired in our brains," said Paula Apsell, Senior Executive Producer, WGBH/NOVA Science Unit. "The series looks at the latest, cutting-edge biological and social science behind our human nature
