Longing for wholesome family television? Await no more, Walmart&Proctor&Gamble have teamed up to provide a family friendly movie for the whole family. The movie, The Jensen Project, is airing this Friday, July 16, on NBC at 8pm/7pm Central.
According to American Family Association,The Jensen Project is the second production in Walmart's Family Moments campaign. The Jensen Project promotes wholesome family values in a positive manner, has no objectionable content and is totally family-friendly.
One Million Moms Director, Monica Cole says, Walmart and Procter & Gamble spent millions to produce this film. They have plans to produce many more films families can actually watch together! Walmart purchased rights to be the presenting sponsor and an agreement has been made with the network that only appropriate ads run during commercial breaks.
Monica also states in an email that 'often OMM will vote with our pocketbooks and now we must vote with our remotes and support these safe films. Ratings will determine the future of family films and possibly spinoffs of new television programs.'
About the movie: After a 16-year absence, Claire and Matt Thompson are reintroduced to The Jensen Project - a secret community of geniuses conducting advanced underground research to solve the world's most difficult problems. The former scientists, accompanied by their tech-minded teenage son Brody, are thrust into a frantic pursuit to keep a potentially dangerous technology from falling into the wrong hands. As the family races against the clock to stop the group's rogue faction, they discover an important truth. In this high-pressure, high-tech world, sometimes the smartest thing we can do is lean on each other. Watch the trailer!
By showing the networks and the movie's corporate sponsors (in this case Walmart and Procter & Gamble) that this type of entertainment is wanted and appreciated, we'll have the opportunity to change the future of entertainment. This means there will be more movies and TV shows your family can enjoy together. We simply need to show that there is an eager audience waiting!
I encourage you and your family to make it a "family movie night" by enjoying The Jensen Project together, this Friday, July 16, at 8/7c on NBC.
