There's something tasty, often sweet, fruity and all-American about a really good piece of pie. In this delicious documentary, travel across the country to visit shops, restaurants, cafes, and even a few homes in search of some excellent crusts, crimping, fillings and flavors. PBS producer Rick Sebak (A Hot Dog Program and A Ride Along The Lincoln Highway) and his crew travel from Portland, Maine for blueberry pie to Seattle, Washington for an original Blue Hawaii pie. They find coconut cream pies outside of Pittsburgh, some truly impressive domed apple pies in northern California, and in Vermont, the women at Poorhouse Pies who keep a pie-shed well stocked so pie lovers can get baked goods at all hours. From central Virginia to western New York, people are making and selling pies that impress, and in Indiana, everyone knows and loves the official state pie, the sugar cream, even though the rest of the country hardly knows it exists. Discover these delicious treats and more in A Few Good Pie Places.
