Smile of a Child TV Keeps It Fresh
In the four years since Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) launched Smile of a Child, its exclusive 24-hour channel just for kids, the cable industry has begun to realize how much parents want quality programming they can trust for their children. Other networks have sprung up in the last year or two offering a broad range of entertaining and educational shows for kids. But none has been able to out-perform Smile of a Child in meeting its focused mission of providing the best in kids programming that not only entertains and educates, but enforces the moral and spiritual values that a majority of parents want their children to embrace.
With research showing rising dissatisfaction among parents at the amount of programming airing on television that is inappropriate for children, Smile of a Child has become the go-to network moms and dads trust their kids to watch throughout the day. Brenda Rossman, Smile of a Child TV’s programming director, said efforts to ensure that every program meets TBN’s high standard of both quality and content have paid off.
“Many moms and dads think of Smile of a Child as a ‘safe zone’ for their kids,” explained Rossman. They’ve told me how grateful they are that they don’t have to keep one eye on the TV and a finger on the remote out of concern for what might pop up on the screen.”
That is because from day one, the team at Smile of a Child has successfully combined the best in kids shows, movies, and specials that have been produced over the past few years with exclusive programming that can only be seen on Smile of a Child. Rossman noted that it is shaping up to be a busy summer for the network as they shoot all new episodes for several exclusive shows on Smile of a Child. “This is always an exciting time of because we know that what we’re working hard to produce over the next several weeks will be enjoyed by families all over the world,” she said.
Among the exclusive Smile of a Child programs in production this summer at TBN’s state-of-the-art studios are:
Mary Rice Hopkins and Puppets with a Heart. With a cast of unforgettable puppet characters and programs packed with catchy songs, great stories, and valuable spiritual lessons, Mary Rice Hopkins and Puppets with a Heart is one of the most innovative and inspiring kid’s shows to come along in years. Among the endorsements the show has received are the Dove Foundation’s “Five-Star Seal of Approval” and the highest rating from the Parents’ Choice Foundation.
The Lads TV. This brand new comedy is specially designed for the whole family. A group of three friends from New Zealand get the break of a lifetime after their band gets signed by music industry legend “The Manager.” Only one thing stands between them and their launch to stardom: a mysterious foe trying to sabotage their efforts. Good wholesome fun and excitement parents can share with their children.
