And now for a few programming notes
The fourth installment of family movie night, a collaboration between Walmart and Procter & Gamble, is set to air Jan. 8 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox. The movie is called Change of Plans, and the plot line revolves around how lives can be turned upside down with a phone call. Also of interest is an upcoming CNBC special on Target, but more on that later.
In Change of Plans, the lead character in the movie finds out that her best friend from college died in a tragic accident while serving in the Peace Corps and she has been named legal guardian of her friend’s four children. The kicker is three of them were adopted from third-world countries and the new parents must help the kids deal with culture clashes and life in America. P&G describes the story as a humorous and heartwarming tales that reveals how fulfilling life can be when you look beyond your own plans and invest in the lives of others.
Those who aren’t in to humorous and heartwarming can tune in the following week when CNBC is scheduled to air, “Target: Inside the Bullseye,” on Thursday, Jan.13, at 9 p.m. EST. Walmart has received the CNBC treatment twice. First, with The Age of Walmart and then there was The New Age of Walmart. “Inside the Bullseye” will rerun several times Thursday even and again on Jan.15 at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.
