TBN Climbs Joshua Tree


Trinity Broadcasting Network has secured the exclusive rights to the broadcast-television premiere of 2002 inspirational film Joshua, the network said Monday.

Joshua was based on the best-selling 1987 book of the same title by retired Catholic priest Joseph Girzone.

TBN will debut Joshua Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 25, at 2 p.m. (PST) and 7 p.m.

"Joshua is the story of a mysterious and charismatic stranger who arrives in a small American rural town and transforms the townspeople through various acts of kindness and down-to-earth spirituality," TBN vice president of administration Paul Crouch Jr. said in a prepared statement.
