 OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK passes on Field of Dreams Ghosts
 

Ghost Player movie was reviewed but not selected for the new Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). "It was an exciting time knowing the film was being considered for OWN, I realize Ghost Player is not a cutting edge type of film. It's just storytelling about a great group of ballplayers from the Field of Dreams and the effects they had on so many different people. It was an honor just to be considered", stated Joe Scherrman producer of the movie Ghost Player: Relive the Magic. "I would like to congratulate OWN for picking the Family Affair documentary."

OWN did acquire the rights to Family Affair, an independent feature length documentary film written and produced by Chico David Colvard. Family Affair, said to be an intensely personal documentary that examines Colvard's compelling family history.

Family Affair is the first film to join OWN's recently announced Documentary Film Club. The Doc Club was created to spotlight cinematic documentaries that can inspire and entertain, and encourage emerging creative voices to bring their stories to a mainstream television audience on OWN.

"OWN is about real life stories of self-discovery, inspiration and transformation," said Chief Executive Officer Christina Norman. "Family Affair is exactly thata multi-layered, raw and provocative family story. I applaud Chico Colvard for his bravery in creating a deeply personal film that shares with us his pain, his anger and ultimately his transformation."

Scherrman continues looking for a good distribution fit for Ghost Player movie.
