The Secrets of the Mountain

TV Family Night is back!
How cool!
I encourage you to tune in to NBC for tonight’s “Secrets of the Mountain,” a made-for-TV movie that is really part of what I hope will be a new version of an old trend in television. Learn more about it here from Beliefnet’s Movie Mom or watch the trailer.
I am one of those old enough to remember gathering in the living room (back when people actually used their living rooms) with my parents, my sister and my brothers to watch a family movie. It was one of the things we could all enjoy together, a fun and comfortable time to do something as a family.
“The Wonderful World of Disney” was what we would mostly gather for back then. At times it would be the “Movie of the Week” or the “NBC Mystery Movie” which would often be “Columbo,” “Banacek,” “McLoud” or “McMillan and Wife.”
Starting tonight, Wal-Mart and Procter and Gamble have replaced Disney, Friday night has replaced Sunday and the producers come from an interesting background, but the idea is the same: family entertainment with a message of inspiration, encouragement and hope.

I had the privilege several years ago to meet with Brian Wells, Executive Producer of the show, as he was making a career move to spend more time making a positive impact on the American entertainment industry. He had recently returned from a Missions trip to South Africa, and was talking about how he actually got a heart for transforming the American entertainment industry while traveling overseas. He told more of his story this week on the Focus on the Family radio show. You can hear the whole interview here or get a behind-the-scenes look here.
If you watch tonight you’ll discover an event that’s about inspiration, positivity and hope. And you’ll be helping launch a movement that may well fulfill Brian and his team’s original vision of transforming the kind of material we see on TV, and maybe even the health and growth families that will gather together to watch it.

    Friday night has always been movie night. Tonight, it was great to see a quality TV movie on a local network. I hope there will be more movies like this one on a regular basis.

    The Show, Secrets of the Mountain was outstanding. The acting was superb and the suspense thrilling. Hats off to Walmart and P&G for outstanding FAMILY VALUED ENTERTAINMENT. My grandchildren could even watch that movie. I can’t say that of too many shows lately. Most shows now of days instead of a well thought out plot, they throw in sex and violence and thinks that makes for a “good” show. It doesn’t! It never did. I hope they do make that into a TV series. One question both my wife and I had of the series is, What state was the mountain suppose to be in. (West coast or east coast?) But I guess that proves it’s a “good” show, it always leaves you guessing.

    I am so glad to see a decent movie on TV again. I am a grandmother and concerned about what the grandkids are watching. I don’t like to watch the sex and violence either. I hope it goes to a series. I thought the story was great and it was well put together.

    this movie is now available at walmart for $12.00. I can’t wait to see Secrets of the Mountain.
