All Things Connecticut (ATC) has returned with an all-new season of shows displaying interesting people and places in the state. CPTV’s weekly “tour de force” magazine-style series invites viewers to see the Nutmeg State in ways they never imagined. The series features segments on the latest technology, offers insights into some of Connecticut’s best food joints, and introduces some local characters who are living out their dreams. In addition, the new “Treasure Hunt” segment has viewers wondering what values are lurking in their basements. The next episode premieres Thursday, April 15 at 8 p.m. on CPTV (with an encore broadcast on Saturday, April 17 at 5:30 p.m.)
 
In this episode of All Things Connecticut the theme is “Making Your Passion Your Living.” The ATC team interviews local people who have made their passion a satisfying part of their everyday lives. Host Jason Hawkins visits ESPN’s studios in Bristol. This week Ed Wierzbicki interviews Walter Wick in his segment “Spotlight on the Arts.” Wick is most famous for co-creating the I-Spy children’s book series. He has made his passion for trinkets a creative and lucrative career that delights young people (and their parents) worldwide. Follow Diane Smith in her segment “Positively Connecticut” as she travels to Cedar Knoll Farm with a couple that has turned their passion for horse-drawn carriages into one of the busiest livery companies in the state, offering their services for weddings, parades, hayrides, and special events. Christina DeFranco in the “Treading Lightly” segment meets Westport chef Michel Nischan, who has a passion for organic food and making it available to everyone. Then host Jason Hawkins appears in a mystery location and viewers are invited to guess “Where’s Jason?” Finally, the “Capturing Connecticut” segment profiles Kearen Enrite, who has a passion for her artwork, wildlife rehabilitation and her life in Portland, Connecticut.  
 
All Things Connecticut is made possible with support from People’s United Bank and Thomas Hooker Brewing Company’s new Munich-Style Lager. All Things Connecticut’s Where's Jason? segment is made possible by Thomas Hooker Brewing Company’s new Munich-Style Lager.
