Hot Shots - the docu-series that offers unprecedented access to three of the best shooters in the world as they prepare for and compete in the sport's most prestigious events - will premiere its second season Dec. 31 at 8:30 ET/PT on Sportsman Channel.
Multiple Emmy Award winner, series creator and showrunner Brian Speciale says the season's first episode is one not to be missed. "Jerry Miculek is trying for his 20th straight International Revolver Championship, which is a big deal to him, " Speciale said. "Well, he had a firing pin break on his very first run. Couldn't fire a single shot. Just like that, his match could be over. We're all looking at each other like 'is this happening?' You can't make this stuff up, and it's the perfect example of what Hot Shots is all about: real drama." Full Article

CREATIVE FUEL DOCUMENTS CIVIL WAR DISCOVERY
"The gravity of the discovery of the remains and the way it captured public interest was a touching moment in time, an overwhelming response from across the nation that brought long-deserved attention to the horrors that this soldier and tens of thousands of others endured here at Franklin. Brian and Jodi (of Creative Fuel Media) have captured that emotion in the context of history and modern times in a way that I didn’t think possible. The film is spectacular in every way, and not to be missed." Full article
FILM CALLED A MUST-SEE, TICKETS TO PREMIERE SELL OUT A packed house filled the historic Franklin Theater, the perfect setting for Creative Fuel Media's heart-stirring documentary that follows the story of an unknown Civil War soldier discovered at a Franklin, Tennessee construction site in 2009.
Heading Back Home intertwines two extraordinary stories – the epic 1864 Battle of Franklin, and the modern-day account of how an unknown Civil War soldier’s body was found, laid to rest and poignantly memorialized.
Narrated to perfection by Lee Majors (of Six Million Dollar Man fame), it’s a truly riveting film. Too often documentaries focus on just facts and figures, but this one is different. It brings history alive, reminding us that these soldiers were real people – fathers, sons, husbands and sweethearts. And beyond the Civil War experience, it’s equally the story of how a 21st century town came together to honor a fallen American hero from long ago. Source: Nashville Lifestyles, Jan. 2012
Those who weren’t able to purchase tickets for the sold-out premiere of the film Heading Back Home are getting a second chance to see it on the big screen.
“There has been so much pent-up demand around this film that we wanted to provide another opportunity for the public to experience it at the Franklin Theatre,” said Sara Preston, Program Director for the theater. The Franklin Theatre will hold three encore showings of the film on Nov. 30. Full article
