WHAM! BAM! ISLAM! and THE 99 on PBS!
By Joe DillardFrom the creator of THE 99 and TC graduate, Naif Al-Mutawa:
Thursday night, PBS will broadcast WHAM! BAM! ISLAM! a documentary about the making of THE 99 and the challenges we still face getting it on the air. I’ve seen the film and notwithstanding the sting of seeing some of my own shortcomings, I think it’s terrific.
Isaac Solotaroff is an accomplished documentary filmmaker. He spent four years and traveled a hundred thousand miles following the development of THE 99 from an idea written on a napkin to a now finished 26-episode animated TV series.
I won’t try to convince you of the value of THE 99 in this note. But I implore you to watch WHAM! BAM! ISLAM! and trust my judgment to recommend it to your friends today.
If you simply forward this email to your list of e-mail friends, asking them to forward it to their own, you would give great reach to a message that will lead to a more peaceful world for our children. (Be sure to send it to yourself and send blind copies to your friends to preserve their privacy.)
Please help if you possibly can by resending this message right away.
If you or your friends live outside the US and are unable to see WHAM! BAM! ISLAM! on PBS, you can go to iTunes right now and reserve a downloadable copy. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you in advance for being such a good friend to our children's future.
