[11/06/10 - 10:29 AM] NBC Plots "A Walk In My Shoes" for Friday, December 3 By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- NBC has booked "A Walk In My Shoes," the third in Walmart and Procter & Gamble's "Family Movie Night" telefilm franchise, for Friday, December 3 at 8:00/7:00c.
Previous efforts include "Secrets of the Mountain" and "The Jensen Project," both of which aired earlier this year (Friday, April 16 and Friday, July 16, respectively).
A DVD and soundtrack of the film, just like the aforementioned titles, will be released the following day exclusively in Walmart stores.
"Shoes" stars Nancy Travis as Trish Fahey, "a stressed-out high school teacher who can't understand her students' lack of effort and why their parents don't seem to care. This is especially true of Justin (Cameron Deane Stewart), a basketball star who is underperforming in her class. All of this changes when Trish wrecks her car and wakes to find herself living in the shoes of Justin's mom (Jana Lee Hamblin), a woman she has personally judged and criticized. With the help of a mysterious stranger (Yara Martinez), Trish discovers the real reason behind her struggles, teaching her a whole new meaning of compassion. No one is left unchanged."
Philip Winchester and Jackson Pace also star in the project, which comes from Craig Anderson Productions and director John Kent Harrison.
