Receives TV Syndication Run Across the Nation


Date: Friday, May 18, 2018

What good is art if it offers nothing positive or life affirming?

MOVIEGUIDE®:  The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment honors and celebrates movies of excellence featuring inspiring, transformational messages for the world. “MOVIEGUIDE®’s Transformational Movies,” a one-hour television program doing just that, is being syndicated the next two months and will play on local stations in over 20 markets in the United States.

The program previously aired on the REELZChannel Easter Sunday.

“Sidebar Digital was selected to do the syndication work,” MOVIEGUIDE® Founder and Publisher Dr. Ted Baehr said. “Our old friend and former Sony Television executive, Joe Kissack, came to us with a great distribution plan for the TV special.”

Hosted by Dr. Baehr and Evy Carroll Baehr, the TV special highlights MOVIEGUIDE®’s favorite movies from last year and explains why the messages they entail are transformational. Some of the movies discussed may surprise you!

The program also features some highlights from the 26th Annual MOVIEGUIDE® Faith & Values Awards Gala, held earlier this year in Hollywood.

As Ted Baehr and Evy Carroll Baehr guide viewers through the transformative movies of last year, the program includes interviews with some of the stars and filmmakers behind those movies, including Christian Bale, Zachery Levi, Demi Lovato, Christopher Nolan, and many others, who share with viewers the transformational messages and themes in their movies.

The TV special is split into four sections:  Movies That Transform Your Family Life, Movies That Transform Your World, Movies That Transform Your Future, and, at the end of the program, the Epiphany Prize for the Most Transformational Movie will be handed out.
