Former President George W. Bush's new policy institute is getting into the TV business.

The Bush Institute is co-producing a weekly television show called "Ideas in Action" that will air on public television and noncommercial cable stations beginning next month.

The host is James K. Glassman, the head of the Bush think tank affiliated with the planned presidential center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

The show will explore topics such as public education, global health and domestic economic policy.

Glassman was Bush's undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs. He held top positions at Roll Call, Atlantic Monthly and New Republic. He also was a moderator on CNN and PBS.
