PBS shows to examine Newtown school shooting

LOS ANGELES (AP) Public television is putting its resources into a week-long examination of the Connecticut school shooting.

PBS announced Monday it will air a series of programs under the umbrella title ``After Newtown.'' The February series will ``continue the public conversation'' on the topics of gun laws, mental illness and school security, PBS said.

Programs including ``PBS NewsHour,'' `'Frontline'' and ``Washington Week with Gwen Ifill'' will be part of the initiative. The science series ``Nova'' will air a documentary on violence and the brain.

A ``Frontline'' report will examine the life of Adam Lanza, who shot his way into Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown on Dec. 14 and killed 20 first-graders and six adults before committing suicide.

PBS' ``After Newtown'' initiative airs Feb. 18 to 22 (check local listings for times).
