TV Family available for streaming for classrooms (and DVDs soon)

I'm excited that TV Family is now available in a 56-minute educational version for classroom use. It is being distributed by the Media Education Foundation. I'm continuing to work on home distribution, and expect to be able to announce TV distribution soon.

Here's the link to their page: TV Family via Media Education Foundation

And here's the quotes from reviewers:

"Fascinating. If you're an educator looking at the rise of unscripted programming, representations of the family in mass media, or how myths of the American Dream have always been caught up with dominant ideas about gender, class, and race, this is the film for you and your classes!"
- Michael Morgan | Professor of Communication at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst

"Emotionally moving and insightful, this film exposes television's ideological whitewashing of representations of family and domestic life."
- William Yousman | Director of the Media Literacy and Digital Culture Graduate Program at Sacred Heart University
