OWN Releases a First Look at "The Judds"
They call it a sizzle reel. It’s a brief trailer of sorts that networks send to the media to promote their shows. Yesterday, I had the privilege of viewing the sizzle reel for the new OWN series, “The Judds.”
The video opened with Wynonna Judd saying, “See, I didn’t have a childhood. Because, you know, I worked for Naomi Judd.”
I’d call that sizzle, wouldn’t you?
Naomi Judd also speaks in the video and she admits that she was tough on her daughter the first go-around. She’s hoping that things will be much better during their reunion tour. But it’s only a few seconds before we start to see that not everything will go picture perfect. However, when the duo gets on stage, magic happens—which I could see in just a few seconds of footage.
OWN has set the premiere date for “The Judds” for late March. A final date will be announced soon. Here’s the official network description:
“‘The Judds’ is a unique docu-series that captures the loving yet often complex relationship between Naomi and Wynonna Judd -- one of the most successful mother-daughter duos in the history of entertainment.
Set against the rich backdrop of their much anticipated reunion tour (the first in 10 years), "The Judds" follows Naomi and Wynonna's emotional journey, as they work to heal old wounds,
reconnect with their fans, and share the spotlight once again.”
I’m looking forward to the show, not just because of The Judds being from right here in our area, but also because it looks like it could be a pretty good one.
I hope to have much more as we get closer to the premiere…
