Some months back, I told you all about my friend, Sheri Bylander’s incredible movie about racehorses and prisoners, called “Homestretch.”
Last Fall, Sheri had a showing of the film here in Dallas at the Magnolia, and we got to see this fantastic film first hand.
The really cool news is that PBS has picked up the film, and is now planning to offer it to local affiliates, starting in April.
Below is an email I got from Sheri today about all the times that are already confirmed…
Here are the PBS/ETV broadcasts announced so far. Feel free to call your local station to see if they are airing it.

This really is a remarkable film. Here’s the trailer for the film:
It’s such an amazing film about redemption for both the horses and the prisoners. I’m so pleased for Sheri, and I hope that if the show is on in your area that you’ll be sure and watch. And if it’s not on in your area, call your local station and request it!
