Logline:
STONE ANGELS -- WINGS OF HOPE is a documentary exploring the phenomena of bronze angel memorial statues that are appearing across America. Placed by those who are healing following the loss of a child, the sometimes mystical coincidences surrounding their origins are revealed.

Length: 88 minutes (one-off) Category: Documentary

Synopsis: This show explores how Richard Paul Evans, an unknown author in the early 1990s, self-publishes “THE CHRISTMAS BOX,” a short fictional book. It’s a story of a woman who mourns the loss of her child at the base of an angel monument. Inspired by readers, Evans commissions the construction of a bronze angel statue and places it in a local cemetery. He donates a copy of the statue to Oklahoma City, following the disastrous bombing of the federal building. Many people who see it want one in their community.

By 2007, over sixty angel memorials were in place throughout the country. Another forty await dedication. For visitors, the statues stand as symbols of peace, solace and promise. Each angel represents a specific child, and consequently, a unique story.

STONE ANGELS -- WINGS OF HOPE recounts how bereavement counselor Lou-Ann Redmon establishes a place where parents can find support, education and understanding to help with the healing process. A client, Sara Ruble, devastated by the loss of her only son, describes her journey to honor his memory by arranging for the placement of the Christmas Box Angel of Hope Children's Memorial in Stow, Ohio.

When Roger and Marcy Bousum of San Antonio lost their youngest child in 2000, they wanted to create a place of solace to honor the spirit of their daughter. After receiving “
THE CHRISTMAS BOX” along with other books on grieving, they form the Angel of Hope Foundation and raise the necessary funds. In 2006, the San Antonio Angel of Hope became the 67th bronze angel erected nationwide.

At some angel sites, engraved memorial bricks are placed around the statues as loving tributes from parents, grandparents, and others. Coins left by visitors are often found upon these bricks.

Every year, each site holds a candlelight vigil in December. Families who have lost a child gather to pause and honor their children by placing a flower at the base of the angel statue.

The appeal of
STONE ANGELS -- WINGS OF HOPE is based simply on the viewers -- a demographic of women and parents -- their ability to empathize with grieving family members -- and their willingness to see how their peers and contemporaries have dealt with such extraordinarily difficult circumstances. These stories are told using documentary footage, live action performances, and narrative.

Intimate and tender, the stories contain a spiritual element that is shared with the audience in a way which reminds them that death is not the final sleep, but a new awakening.

Host: Richard Paul Evans is attached as host/narrator. His novels have each appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. There are more than fourteen million copies of his books in print worldwide. His works have been translated into more than eighteen languages and adapted into award-winning television movies.

Status: Currently in a limited production phase. Three hours of documentary “A-roll” and “B-roll” shooting has taken place and is available. Production will resume upon a firm commitment from a buyer.

Season One: 13/22s Category: Unscripted

Synopsis: OFF THEIR ROCKERS takes the audience into the lives of people over 50 who’ve forsaken the gold watch and the rocking chair for second and even third chances at grabbing their brass ring.

Many subjects shuck old ideas of what it means to be middle-aged or retired. Some become risk takers. Others feel more adventurous as they grow older. Some begin second careers or embark on new business ventures. Others pursue their hobbies with an invigorated passion unrivaled by past generations. Whatever the case, age has become a non-factor in their quality of life. People are living longer, harder, faster, and more enthusiastically than they ever did before.
OFF THEIR ROCKERS taps into this phenomena with entertaining and interesting stories.

Audience members are encouraged to comment about the program and to submit their ideas for future shows.
