Oprah Winfrey Network Acquires Three New Documentaries
The Oprah Winfrey Network has acquired three documentary films -- covering topics ranging from orphaned elephants to competing high school theater troupes -- which will add to the growing list on the network's monthly documentary film club.
The films include One Lucky Elephant, 65 Redroses and Most Valuable Players. The documentary film club is set to begin spring 2011 on the network which will launch on January 1.
One Lucky Elephant follows circus producer David Balding as he struggles to find a nurturing home for his beloved orphaned baby African elephant. The film was ten years in the making.
65 Redroses captures the spirit of a 23-year-old Canadian woman suffering from the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis and awaiting a double lung transplant.
Most Valuable Players covers three theater troupes hitting the Freddy Awards, a live television event honoring outstanding high school musical theater in New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley region of Pennsylvania.
