Who is Simon Miller?

We have 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.
Family Movie Night has reached millions of viewers all across America. The most recent movie, Field of Vision, was a significant success on Saturday, June 11th. Over three million households watched the movie and many lives were touched by the messages of honesty and empathy.
The opportunity to watch great entertainment with "teachable moments" has created a wonderful way for families to interact and discuss important universal truths like trust and forgivness. Now the latest in the Family Movie Night series, Who is Simon Miller?, is set to air August 6, 2011 on NBC.
When unassuming geologist Simon Miller (Loren Dean) mysteriously disappears one night, the Miller family is thrown into a desperate search to find him. Simon's wife Meredith (Robyn Lively) and their two kids, Sarah, 18, and Kevin, 15, frantically search Simon's office for information. When they find a stash of passports, all with Simon's picture but each with a different alias, they realize that their father has been keeping more than a few secrets. Who is Simon Miller? And what has he gotten himself - and now his family - into? Not sure they can even trust the dad they thought they knew, the Millers embark on an international mission to get him back. It's a heart - pounding adventure that tests the limits to which families will fight for each other.
