OWN Greenlights The Hero Effect
Posted by Becca      October 11, 2016      News, Projects, The Hero Effect

Great news Emily fans we get to see our girl on tv again soon in what sounds like an amazing project! One that she’s been working on for a year now!

OWN has greenlit “The Hero Effect,” an inspirational docuseries from nonprofit United Way Worldwide and Dolphin Entertainment, Variety has learned exclusively.

“The Hero Effect” showcases stories of ordinary individuals who are making extraordinary differences in their communities. Each episode is shot on location in different communities across the country. The real-life stories, presented by United Way — the world’s largest privately-funded nonprofit — build on the company’s mission to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.

The 10-episode series will be co-hosted by NFL star and “Dancing with the Stars” winner Donald Driver, along with actress Emily Wilson.

“Throughout my 35 years of working with communities at United Way, I’ve learned that the vast majority of people are eager to make the world a better place,” said Brian Gallagher, president and CEO of United Way Worldwide. “The men and women featured in ‘The Hero Effect’ are our local heroes, stepping forward to make a difference in their communities. We’re incredibly inspired by their work and excited to help share them and their efforts with the world.”

Each of the “heroes” featured were nominated from the 1,200 United Ways in the country. Dolphin Entertainment also vetted many organizations and initiatives, to ultimately find the best stories for the series.

The first season will cover issues including veterans services, human trafficking, early childhood education and foster care children.

“Our hope is to create a ripple effect and inspire viewers through the stories and personal journeys of our featured heroes to optimize their own potential,” said Bowman.

“The Hero Effect” will air on the second Saturday of every month 10 a.m., beginning on Nov. 12. Each Saturday morning, two back-to-back episodes will air.


As we get more information about the project we will be sure to pass it on.
