COMPANY CEO JOINS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER AND STAR OF THE FILM TO HOST SPECIAL RED-CARPET SCREENING FOR MILITARY MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES AT JBLM IN WASHINGTON STATE
JOINT BASE LEWIS-McCHORD, SEATTLE, Nov. 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Great American Family President and CEO Bill Abbott joined Chief Creative Officer Candace Cameron Bure to host a very special world premiere of My Christmas Hero exclusively for U.S. service men and women and their families yesterday. This special showing was held at Joint Army and Air Force Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) in Washington state, where the film is set.
“We truly enjoyed the opportunity to salute these real Christmas heroes at the premiere of My Christmas Hero on the joint base,” said Bure, who plays Dr. Nicole Ramsey in the movie. “It was fitting to host this screening here at JBLM because that’s where the movie’s story is set.”
The red-carpet screening was held Wednesday, November 15 on the McChord (Air Force) side of JBLM—the base portrayed in My Christmas Hero. Bure stars in and is an executive producer of the new movie. Bure’s co-star, Gabriel Hogan, was also in attendance. This event follows a recent announcement that Great American Family has experienced eleven consecutive months of growth making it TV’s fastest-growing network.
“Great American Media provides quality family-friendly programming that celebrates faith, family and country, and our unique partnership with Candy Rock allows us to produce best in class content. To be able to celebrate Christmas and this movie with the everyday heroes who selflessly serve our country was truly special for both Candace and me,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media. “My Christmas Hero is at the heart of who we are as a network.”
My Christmas Hero is the story of a U.S. Army reservist on a mission to honor a special fallen soldier and bring much-needed healing to her family. Along the way, Dr. Ramsey (Bure) and Major Ross (Gabriel Hogan) may find more than the answers to the mystery!
