Procter & Gamble and Walmart will premiere their made-for-TV family movie, “A Walk in My Shoes,” starring Nancy Travis, Philip Winchester and Yara Martinez on Friday, Dec. 3, 2010 at 8/7C on NBC.
It makes viewers stop and think, “What would I learn if I stepped into someone else’s life?” Stressed-out high school teacher Trish Fahey (Nancy Travis, “Three Men and a Baby,” “Becker”) can’t understand her students’ lack of effort in the classroom and why their parents don’t seem to care.[ Also Read: Netflix Offers More Options to Film Lovers ]
This is especially true of Justin Kremer (Cameron Deane Stewart), a popular, skateboard-loving, basketball star who is underperforming in her class. Trish has him suspended from the basketball team and quickly chalks up the situation as a case of bad parenting.[ Also Read: Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3 Available on Demand ]
This perspective dramatically changes when Trish meets Molly (Yara Martinez, “My Own Worst Enemy”), a mysterious stranger intent on helping her see things differently.
After a car accident, Trish wakes to find herself living the life of Cindy Kremer, the woman she has rashly judged and criticized.
Molly helps Trish discover that there is more to the story and learns a powerful lesson that affects everyone she interacts with, including her husband, daughter and the Marine next door. No one is left unchanged.
Yara Martinez, best known for her work in CBS’s “The Unit,” plays the role of Molly. Philip Winchester, who starred as the title role of Robinson Crusoe in the NBC action series “Crusoe,” plays Jake, a Marine who lives next door to the Kremer family.
The roles of Cindy and Justin Kremer are played by Jana Lee Hamblin and Cameron Deane Stewart, respectively.
“A Walk in My Shoes” will also feature a soundtrack produced by Randy Jackson that includes songs from artists such as Michael Johns, Judgement, and Walking In Space.
The film DVD and soundtrack will be sold together in a bonus pack exclusively at Walmart starting Saturday, Dec. 4.
