RLTV TO AIR RONALD REAGAN DOC ON PRESIDENT’S DAY
Due to popularity, acclaimed documentary to air a second time on cable network
Baltimore, Md. – Renegade Productions, a full-service production branch within Renegade Communications, today announced their documentary IN THE FACE OF EVIL: REAGAN’S WAR IN WORD AND DEED will have an exclusive President’s Day screening on RLTV . RLTV, the only cable network and online destination for Generation 50+, had previously secured the rights to this compelling documentary from Renegade Productions as part of a development deal for future documentaries and series produced by Renegade, . "In The Face Of Evil" reflects Renegade's commitment to bringing fresh perspective to iconic American figures - in this case President Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States.
The four-time award-winning documentary will enjoy its screening on RLTV on Monday, February 17th at 8pm ET to commemorate President’s Day. Based on Peter Schweizer's acclaimed bestseller, "Reagan's War," the documentary chronicles the brutal conflict between totalitarianism and freedom as seen through President Ronald Reagan's 40-year confrontation with communism. The New York Times noted, it is “...an operatic documentary that rises to new heights," and The Washington Post called it “an epic homage to Ronald Reagan.”
“We are thrilled to have RLTV as a home for our films. Renegade Productions’ principal goal is to create moving content that enhances the human experience,” said Tim Watkins, Director/Producer/Principal of Renegade Productions, “and RLTV is a great destination with very similar goals - with a significant reach and audience to back it up.”
“Tim and his team at Renegade bring years of experience and maturity to their productions, they are a great fit for us and we look forward to future collaborations,” said RLTV Senior Vice President of Programming and Production Elliot Jacobson.
The only cable network and online destination created specifically for adults 50+, RLTV (www.rl.tv) offers unique, inspiring programming that focuses on topics that matter to Generation 50+, from relationships, reinvention, rediscovering passions and retirement, to finances, health, and current events. At RLTV, it's all about rethinking life for 50+. RLTV. Experience Matters.
