Celebrate ‘Little House’

Laura Ingalls Wilder: Prairie to Page, a 90-minute American Masters documentary about the author of 1935’s autobiographical novel Little House on the Prairie, debuts tomorrow, December 29, at 8 pm ET on PBS stations (but check local listings), and streaming on pbs.org/lauraingalls or the PBS Video app

Victor Garber narrates, with Tess Harper reading the words of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Amy Brenneman reading her words of her daughter Rose Wilder Lane.

Melissa Gilbert, who played Wilder in the 1974-1983 NBC series, Little House on the Prairie, is among those interviewed in the documentary, along with castmates Alison Arngrim (Nellie Oleson) and Dean Butler (Almanzo Wilder).

If you’d like to see the series today, Cozi TV airs three episodes every weekday at 4 pm ET. For your local channel number, either free over the air via antenna, or on cable, visit Get Cozi TV.

You can also stream all nine seasons free on IMDbTV, if you subscribe to Peacock Premium ($4.99/month, with a seven-day free trial), or ad-free on Peacock Premium Plus ($9.99/month, with 7-day trial).

Interest in Little House on the Prairie has rarely waned. The book was adapted in 2005 as a six-part miniseries, currently unavailable, which aired on ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney, and a new series reboot is in the works.
