New York, NY (June 20, 2011): Starting this week, Discovery Communication’s Military Channel will air a series of PSAs produced by The Creative Coalition in partnership with Blue Star Families, with support from the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) and Health Net, Inc. Directed by actor and President of The Creative Coalition Tim Daly, the PSAs promote a toll-free suicide prevention help line.
The PSAs feature celebrities and athletes such as Cher, Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo (THE FIGHTER), Michael Chiklis (FANTASTIC FOUR, “The Shield”), football star Terrell Owens, and Taye Diggs (“Private Practice”). In addition the PSAs also feature: Minnie Driver (CONVICTION); Omar Epps ("House"); Peter Gallagher ("Covert Affairs”); Aaron Staton ("Mad Men"); Emmy Award-winner Alfre Woodard ("Memphis Beat"); Tom Arnold (TRUE LIES); Ariel Winter ("Modern Family"); Ashley Jones ("True Blood"); Bridget Moynahan (BATTLE: LOS ANGELES); CCH Pounder (Avatar); Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse"); Esai Morales (GUN HILL ROAD); Emmy Award-winner Hector Elizondo (“Grey’s Anatomy”); Holt McCallany ("Lights Out") James Denton ("Desperate Housewives"); Jon Huertas ("Castle"); Karina Smirnoff ("Dancing with the Stars"); Lea Thompson ("Caroline in the City"); Maria Menounos ("Access Hollywood"); Richard Kind (A SERIOUS MAN); Robert Davi ("Criminal Minds" ); Sara Rue ("Less Than Perfect") ; Steven Weber ("Wings"); and Wendie Malick ("Hot in Cleveland"), just to name a few.
Beginning this month, in addition to the Military Channel, the PSAs also are airing on the Lifetime network’s mylifetime.com, Elle.com, MakingOf.com, as well as on taxi cab screens in New York City, Boston, Miami, and Chicago.
National statistics show that veterans constitute about 20 percent of the 30,000 to 32,000 U.S. deaths each year from suicide. On average, 18 veterans attempt suicide each day. Seven of them will actually succeed. Suicides also are increasing among military family members, who are the support system of our service men and women.
“We are grateful to the Military Channel for providing a platform to allow America's artists to help bring a lifesaving message to our service men and women, and their families,” said CEO of The Creative Coalition Robin Bronk.
“Military Channel is pleased to partner with The Creative Coalition and Blue Star Families to employ the power of the arts to shed light on this crisis. The artists who participated are true patriots, and we thank them for their contribution to this cause," said Henry Schleiff, General Manager and President of Military Channel.

"We are thankful to the Military Channel for helping us reach military families, veterans, and service members in crisis," said Blue Star Families Chief Executive Officer, Kathy Roth-Douquet. "While our military families are resilient, we want them to know that asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness."

"Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence" Rocks!
In case you didn't get the memo, "Elvis Mitchell: Under the Inluence" rocks!
One of my best kept secrets is tuning into TCM, not only to visit classic films, but to check out Elvis Mitchell's super cool show "Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence." Not only is Elvis a snappy dresser and a nice person you'd like to share a beer with, but he's by far the best interviewer in the biz. The fact that he he told the New York Times to take their job and shove it when they tried to screw him over just goes to prove that he's a badass that walks the walk. Rumor has it that some Sony Pitcures publicists prevented him from screening "Quantum of Solace" a few weeks ago in favor of letting in a slew of unpaid dilettante junketeers. Don't get me started on Sony's latest new hire amateur publicist. It's thier loss since they haven't done their homework on Mitchell.
If you haven't checked out "Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence," by all means do so. You will not be disappointed. Tell your friends I told you so.
Robyn Hitchcock's Sundance Channel Documentary
Music fans of all genres might want to check out a great doucumentary about Robyn Hitchcock that's showing on the Sundance Channel on March 30 and 31st.
I watched it last night and enjoyed every bleeding second of it.
Here's how the doc is described: "One heady week last summer, Robyn recorded a group of new songs in his London house , with help from famous musician friends, including REM's lead guitarist Peter Buck, legendary songwriter Nick Lowe and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin."
This documentary eavesdrops on Robyn at work as he adds to his stockpile of dark ,witty and surreal rock songs and explores with contributors including Gillian Welch and David Rawlings what makes Hitchcock's songs so memorable. The film culminates with the band taking the songs on the road in America for Robyn's latest album Ole Tarantula. Includes live performances of 15 new and old songs!
