Walmart and P&G Announce the Next Film in Their Family Movie Night Initiative

CINCINNATI, Nov. 17, 2010 -- Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) and Walmart (NYSE: WMT) will premiere their made-for-TV family movie, "A Walk in My Shoes," starring Nancy Travis, Philip Winchester and Yara Martinez on Friday, Dec. 3, 2010 at 8/7C on NBC.

The movie is the third installment of their Family Movie Night Initiative, which was launched last April in direct response to research which revealed that parents across America are seeking more family-oriented entertainment to enjoy together. When P&G and Walmart learned that there was a clear desire for more options when it comes to quality family entertainment, they made a commitment to be part of the solution and are looking forward to bringing more family movies throughout 2011.

"A Walk in My Shoes" makes viewers stop and think, "What would I learn if I stepped into someone else's life?" Stressed-out high school teacher Trish Fahey (Nancy Travis, "Three Men and a Baby," "Becker") can't understand her students' lack of effort in the classroom and why their parents don't seem to care. This is especially true of Justin Kremer (Cameron Deane Stewart), a popular, skateboard-loving, basketball star who is underperforming in her class. Trish has him suspended from the basketball team and quickly chalks up the situation as a case of bad parenting.

This perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly (Yara Martinez, "My Own Worst Enemy"), a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently. After a car accident, Trish wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she has rashly judged and criticized. Molly helps Trish discover that there is more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone she interacts with, including her husband, daughter and the Marine next door. No one is left unchanged.

"When I read the script for 'A Walk in My Shoes' I was instantly drawn to the character of Trish Fahey, because I think many of us have found ourselves in similar situations," stated Nancy Travis. "It's important to remember that today many families, especially those with members serving in the military, are balancing many pressures, so I was happy to work on a project that not only brought family-friendly programming to television, but addressed these life lessons."

Yara Martinez, best known for her work in CBS's "The Unit," plays the role of Molly. Philip Winchester, who starred as the title role of Robinson Crusoe in the NBC action series "Crusoe," plays Jake, a Marine who lives next door to the Kremer family. The roles of Cindy and Justin Kremer are played by Jana Lee Hamblin and Cameron Deane Stewart, respectively.

"A Walk in My Shoes" will take viewers on an inspirational journey, as they experience how families can come together in the face of adversity. The film's main characters are forced to confront their pasts and learn valuable life lessons in an uplifting manner that families can enjoy together. This emotional story is an expansion into the dramatic genre for P&G and Walmart.

The first two films in the Family Movie Night Initiative, "Secrets of the Mountain" and "The Jensen Project," were family adventures and proved to be a success with both parents and kids alike. More than 7.5 million viewers tuned in to watch "Secrets of the Mountain" and the DVD is the best selling made-for-TV movie ever sold at Walmart. The success continued with "The Jensen Project," and as a result of both movies, the brands not only experienced increases in sales, but received hundreds of letters from parents with positive feedback asking for more programming that families can enjoy together.

"A Walk in My Shoes" will also feature a soundtrack produced by music mogul Randy Jackson that includes songs from artists such as Michael Johns, Judgement, and Walking In Space. The "A Walk in My Shoes" DVD and soundtrack will be sold together in a bonus pack exclusively at Walmart starting Saturday, Dec. 4. For more information visit www.awalkinmyshoes.com.
