SARAH PALIN DOCUMENTARY MOVIE "THE UNDEFEATED" MAKES NETWORK TELEVISION PREMIERE ON REELZCHANNEL SUNDAY, MARCH 11 AT 8PM ET/ 5PM PT
Film Shows the True Story of the Rise of America's Most Controversial Politician
(Albuquerque, NM) Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - REELZCHANNEL-TV About Movies(R) today announced the Sarah Palin documentary movie "The Undefeated" will make its network television premiere on REELZ on Sunday, March 11 at 8pm ET/ 5pm PT. "The Undefeated" chronicles the rise from obscurity to national prominence of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Starting during the Exxon Valdez disaster of 1989 when Palin worked a commercial fishing boat she owned with her blue-collar husband, "The Undefeated" shows the struggles, the victories and the setbacks during a controversial career. "The Undefeated" was written / directed by Stephen K. Bannon and produced by Glenn Evans and Dan Fleuette of the Victory Film Group.
"We're thrilled to have yet another opportunity to bring a big story to viewers," said Stan E. Hubbard, REELZCHANNEL CEO. "Sarah Palin is a charismatic figure who burst onto the political scene, and whatever your leanings, if you have any interest or curiosity in politics, social change or the Sarah Palin phenomenon, this is a must-see movie."
"We are incredibly excited that REELZCHANNEL has made the courageous decision to present the network television premiere on the same weekend as the fictionalized hit-piece by HBO," said Stephen K. Bannon, who also hosts KABC's nationally syndicated radio show 'The Victory Sessions'. "'The Undefeated' is the story of 'Everyman' - of how through grit, determination and force of character one can make an impact in modern America."
Glenn Evans said "We intend to have a full-court press to ensure that everyone in America has an opportunity to see 'The Undefeated' on REELZCHANNEL. Given the extraordinary success REELZCHANNEL had in releasing 'The Kennedys', which garnered ten Emmy nominations, 'The Undefeated' could not have a better home for its network television premiere."
Amy Siskind of The New Agenda in her review of the film titled: "The Movie I Wish Hillary Had Made" published in The Huffington Post wrote "When the credits rolled at the end of the pre-screening of 'The Undefeated' my first thought was this: Why didn't Hillary's advisors think of this?"
The film also includes leading prominent political commentators Mark Levin, Tammy Bruce and Andrew Breitbart as well as conservative activists Kate Obenshain, Sonnie Johnson and Jamie Radtke. Additionally, the film features interviews with Alaskan civil servants, elected officials and advisors who were involved in Alaskan politics during Governor Palin's tenure.
Encore Presentations for "The Undefeated" on REELZ:
-Monday, March 12 at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT
