Family Movie Night - Truth be Told
by Alon Banks
Last year we partnered with Moms 4 Family TV, a bunch of regular moms working to make televesion relevant. Instead of complaining about the lack of good family programs they created the Family Movie Night initiative.
In just one year, Family Movie Night has reached millions of viewers all across America. The most recent movie, Change of Plans, was a significant success on Saturday, January 8th. Over three million households watched the movie and many lives were touched by the messages of compassion and self-sacrifice.
The opportunity to watch great entertainment with "teachable moments" has created a wonderful way for families to interact and discuss important universal truths like honesty and empathy. Now the latest in the Family Movie Night series, Truth Be Told, is set to air in April 16th, 2011 on FOX.
Truth Be Told is lighthearted and entertaining, yet it is also a poignant story about the pitfalls of compromising your integrity to achieve your goals, no matter how honorable those goals may be. It highlights how being honesty may occasionally have consequences, but it's what builds character and earns the trust of others.
We hope that you encourage your families to watch Truth be Told and visit Moms 4 Family TV to find ways you can help support this grassroots organization with the goal supporting great family television.
