About this show

Setting off from a farm in Indiana as a young girl, Ruby struggles to turn her dream of the first all-electrical television system into a reality. Jumping forward to a McCarthy-era New York TV studio, Ruby's heirs fight over how her story should be told. Rinne Groff's The Ruby Sunrise charts the course of the phenomenon of television from early idealism and sparks of genius to promises fulfilled and compromises brokered and beyond.
