After months and months of preparation, this weekend we taped our television show, Trial & Heirs: Protect Your Family Fortune! Our show will premiere in Michigan on August 9th at 8 p.m. EST and air on PBS affiliates around the country in November and December. PBS will also stream the broadcast online for the premiere, through UStream.tv, so that everyone would have an opportunity to view the show in August.
The taping included our show with a live studio audience (they were wonderful!), DVD extras from the two of us, and an interview with Ray Charles, Jr.
Ray shared some touching stories about his famous father as well as the private pain that his father’s estate has caused his family. Ray’s full interview, including some never-before-told stories, will be available as one of the DVD extras.
We share some behind-the-scenes pictures from our production on our Trial & Heirs Facebook page. If you’re not already a member of our Facebook page, make sure to “like” it so that you receive the latest from us!
Our television special is based on our book, Trial & Heirs: Famous Fortune Fights! In the show, we use high-profile celebrity stories, like Sonny Bono, Marlon Brando, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson and James Brown, to educate people about wills, trusts and estate planning. The TV special will also help raise money to support the wonderful cause of public television, which needs pledge donations now more than ever with federal funding cuts.
With different pledge amounts, viewers can receive the DVD of the show with DVD extras from us as well as our full interview with Ray; a copy of our book, Trial & Heirs; and our brand new Estate Planning Organizer to help you, your family, and your clients.
We hope that all of you join us for the exciting premiere of Trial & Heirs: Protect Your Family Fortune! on WTVS Channel 56 and UStream.tv, August 9th at 8pm EST!
