Discovery Times Off to War Again3/04/2005 9:16 AM Eastern
Discovery Times Channel has commissioned additional episodes of limited series Off to War from Downtown Community Television Center.
Three episodes of the show -- focusing on soldiers of the Arkansas National Guard on both the frontlines of Iraq and the home front -- aired in 2004. Discovery Times has ordered seven more installments.
“The response we received from our viewers and the industry for this series has been both moving and overwhelming,” Discovery Times senior vice president and general manager Vivian Schiller said in a prepared statement. “The topicality of the story, combined with the intimate and personal stories of the guardsmen and the families they left behind, has touched our viewers in a dramatic way.”
