We Feed People

From Director Ron Howard and producers Brian Grazer and Imagine Documentaries, “We Feed People” spotlights chef José Andrés and his nonprofit World Central Kitchen’s incredible mission and evolution over 12 years, from being a scrappy group of grassroots volunteers to becoming one of the most highly regarded humanitarian aid organizations in the disaster relief sector. As the world’s most prominent food-focused first responders, Andrés and the World Central Kitchen team have snapped into action, combating hunger in the wake of crisis by serving over 60 million meals to date.

The film takes an in-depth look at World Central Kitchen’s collaborations with local chefs to feed affected people and first responders, which has instilled an extraordinary sense of hope in these communities. From the frontlines of a crisis to the backrooms of the kitchen, the film examines the restoration of community and the activation of change—one meal at a time.


Bad Boys

Few teams in professional sports history elicit such a wide range of emotions as the Detroit Pistons of the late 1980s and early ’90s. For some, the team was heroic — made up of gritty, hard-nosed players who didn’t back down from anyone. And for others, it was exactly that trait — the willingness to do seemingly anything to win — that made them the “Bad Boys,” the team fans loved to hate.

No drama is complete without compelling characters, and the Bad Boys Pistons had a full cast. Viewers will see the many factors that drove one of the best — and most complex — players in NBA history: Isiah Thomas, a lethal combination of sweetness on the outside and toughness within. In addition, the team was characterized by the toughness of Bill Laimbeer and Rick Mahorn; the quiet intensity of Joe Dumars; the savvy and fearlessness of a young Dennis Rodman; the comic relief provided by John Salley; and the mixture of grit, professionalism and style possessed by coach Chuck Daly.

Sandwiched between the Lakers’ and Celtics’ dominance of the 1980s and the Bulls’ run in the 1990s, the Pistons’ two titles in 1989 and ’90 are often viewed as a transitional period in NBA history, rather than a dynamic championship era in its own right. But for anyone who experienced the Bad Boys in action, they more than carved out their own identity, both in the league and in American popular culture. Now, viewers will finally get the untold story behind one of the most unique championship teams in NBA history.


D. Wade: Life Unexpected

For a decade, Dwyane Wade intimately documented his life and career with a film crew. The result is a remarkably candid portrait of one of the greatest NBA players of all-time.


Hubble’s Cosmic Journey

Since its launch in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has captured thousands of stunning images of space, revolutionized our understanding of the universe and become a global icon. To mark its 25th anniversary, National Geographic Channel tells the definitive story of NASA’s most successful science project ever, in Hubble’s Cosmic Journey, narrated by Neil deGrasse Tyson.


Mission Pluto

At this moment, three billion miles away, NASA spacecraft New Horizons speeds through the outer solar system at ten times the speed of a bullet. It is headed where no spacecraft has ever gone before: the last great, uncharted realm of our solar system called The Third Zone. There it will intercept the last unexplored world, the ninth planet, Pluto. No-one yet knows what Pluto really looks like, but one thing is certain: it looks set to revolutionize planetary science forever, because it could answer some of the biggest questions about how our solar system evolved and, ultimately, how the earth was formed.



This Magic Moment

They were a fairy tale team in a fairy tale setting, with a cast of larger-than-life characters and a Cinderella plot line that featured magical ping-pong balls and a talking puppet. For four years in the mid-1990s, the Orlando Magic were one of the most captivating shows in the NBA, both on the court and off.

Directed by Gentry Kirby and Erin Leyden, “This Magic Moment” relives those heady days when Shaquille O’Neal and Penny Hardaway ruled not only pro basketball, but popular culture as well. The two stars deliver delightful but brutally honest testimony, and so do the executives, coaches, teammates, observers and opponents who were there for the stardust and poof! — the breaking of the spell. Laced with archival footage (voicing Hardaway’s alter ego, Little Penny in his Nike commercials, was little-known comedian Chris Rock), This Magic Moment is not only a trip down memory lane, but also a cautionary fable about what might have been. In the words of Nick Anderson, one of the most compelling figures in the tale, “There are short stories and long stories, and ours was a short ride.” Short, yes, but also rich and telling and endlessly entertaining.


Believeland

“Believeland” is Cleveland to the core. It’s the story of the fans whose love and loyalty have endured despite half a century of losing, and the spiritual and economic impact of sports in a city that has suffered more than its share of scorn.

      And speaking of Aladdin, they should put on the tv show as well. Home Improvement should also be included as well.
