The LPB Louisiana Production Fund

There’s no place quite like Louisiana. The food, music, scenery, cultures, and traditions are just a few of the things that make our state such a treasure, not only to those of us lucky enough to call it home, but to the world. That’s why sharing the story of Louisiana is so important to LPB.

Over the past four decades, LPB has connected the citizens of Louisiana by producing programs and documentaries that showcase our unique history, people, places and events. Louisiana: A History; Attakapas: The Cajun Story; and Atchafalaya Houseboat have been just some of your favorites. To ensure LPB’s continued legacy as Louisiana’s Storyteller, Friends of LPB announces the launch of a fund that will help make many more programs like these possible for generations to come.


LPB has so much more to share! Along with weekly programs like Louisiana: The State We’re In and Art Rocks! The Series, LPB has some exciting documentaries coming this Fall, that cover topics as diverse as the state itself!

  • The Precipice (October 2022) Faced with losing their tribal lands at an alarming rate due to climate change, the Pointe-Au-Chien tribe fights for federal recognition.
  • CROSSING OVER Black Greek Life (October 2022) A look at the role of fraternities and sororities at Louisiana’s HBCU’s from preserving Black culture to promoting Black entrepreneurship.
  • Why Louisiana Ain’t Mississippi…or Any Place Else! (December 2022) You might have lived here all of your life, but you’ll love Louisiana even more after this fun four-part series based on a presentation by Jay Dardenne! Click here to watch the trailer.

Founding Members
LPB Louisiana Production Fund

The Louisiana Production Fund was started with a very generous gift from LPB members Frank and Kathy McArthur. The McArthurs wanted to establish the fund as a way to honor retired LPB President Beth Courtney and her dedication to sharing the uniqueness of Louisiana with the rest of the world.

As LPB begins an exciting new chapter, the support of members like you is more important than ever. Consider becoming a founding member and helping us continue sharing the stories of this unique place that we call home with the rest of the world.
