Family Movie Night on NBC

Something I did not expect to do when I started blogging -- I did not expect I'd be promoting a television show.

We gave up paid television about a dozen years ago.  As of whenever all this digital stuff happened, we no longer even get broadcast signals.  So it has been a long time since we've watched regular television.  My understanding is that, in general, tv is even worse now than it was a decade ago.

But there are some bright spots.  And one of them is the reason for this post.  Family Movie Night is airing A Walk in My Shoes next Friday, December 3, at 7 pm CST.  Check out the preview:

A Walk In My Shoes - 2:33 TRLR from on Vimeo.

From the website, here's a blurb about Family Movie Night:
Walmart and P&G have partnered to create the Family Moments initiative to help moms and families better connect with each other. Family Movie Night is a part of that movement to provide meaningful entertainment for the entire family.

During Family Movie Night, you can be confident that the programming on their screens will be fun and action-packed, without the worry of having to dive for the remote to change the channel when inappropriate ads or other content comes on. Soundtracks for the films also feature top producers and artists. The day after airing,a special 2-disc DVD/CD bonus pack will be available for purchase exclusively through Walmart.

By providing this block of time, Walmart and P&G are striving to reconnect families across the country that are bombarded by busy schedules and the lack of programming that's appealing to everyone. Tune in and see what the buzz is about.
Now that is something that sounds incredibly promising. Watching television and not having to dive for the remote.  I like that.

My suggestion to you -- check out the trailer above, go visit the website, check out (and like) their Facebook page, and consider watching A Walk in My Shoes next Friday.  Obviously, encouraging others to look into it as well would be great too.

Disclaimer:  by blogging about this, I can have the opportunity to watch a special online screening of A Walk in My Shoes. No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.
