'Truth' gets Showtime update


Showtime said Friday that it will air a special update to the Oscar-nominated documentary "An Inconvenient Truth" immediately following the film's world TV premiere, which has been scheduled for 8-10 p.m. March 11. The docu, featuring Al Gore on a quest to educate the public on the dangers of global warming, was nominated for two Oscars: best documentary feature and best original song for Melissa Etheridge's "I Need to Wake Up." The special, produced last year as a follow-up to the film's release, features Gore further discussing the ways in which the global warming problem has grown while offering practical ways to confront it.
