INSP To Air Short-Form Series ‘Old Henry’
A six-part short-form series, Old Henry, created by family entertainment network INSP, will premiere on INSP on Monday, June 17, and Tuesday, June 18.
“As an extended storyline in INSP’s Moments initiative, Old Henry is groundbreaking,” said David Cerullo, Chairman-CEO of The Inspiration Networks. “To our knowledge, no network has ever created a multi-part, 2-3 minute (per episode) series that airs in back-to-back prime time blocks over a two night period. Not only is the delivery method revolutionary; the subject matter is relevant and poignant.”
Old Henry spotlights the pervasive devaluation and dismissal of the elderly within society and focuses on Henry, a man in his 80s dealing with these challenges. (Ralph Waite stars in the role of Henry.) When Jessica (October Baby’s Rachel Hendrix), a friendly stranger, shows him the respect and honor absent from the world around him, Henry begins to rediscover the true value inherent within himself and, in turn, becomes an inspiring example to Jessica.
Old Henry is part of INSP’s Moments initiative. “This short-form content has been hugely successful and had an enormous impact,” Cerullo said. “These ‘programs’ air several times a day throughout the INSP schedule and are designed to provide an inspiring and enlightening Moment that encourages individuals to do the right thing. Similar to PSAs, this unique art form is richer and more detailed. And audiences love them.”
All the episodes will be released online immediately following their television debut. The entire series will be available at www.moments.org after the airing of episode 6 on June 18. Following the series debut, Old Henry will be rotated throughout the INSP schedule, joining the Moments library.
