Touchstone Television is shooting a pilot for a new series, staring Kim Delaney, called "Army Wives":
"Army Wives" is an ensemble drama about a sassy woman (Sally Pressman) from the wrong side of the tracks who marries a soldier, moves her kids onto a military base and becomes friends with a diverse group of Army wives.
I hope they are planning to present a balanced, albeit "dramatic," view of Army Wives. I think we MilSpouses might want to encourage Touchstone to do so. Of course, I also hope it is interesting and fun to watch!
I know whenever there is a major motion picture or series about sororities, the international umbrella organization's headquarters sends out press releases and letters.
Unless someone already knows about such an effort in progress, I'm going to draft a letter to Touchstone...applauding their decision to focus on the spouse experience and encouraging them to do their research and avoid the easy stereotypes. I will post it when I am done.
I think in this case truth is more fascinating than fiction and they would do well to realize that! Hopefully they will produce a show that is entertaining, illuminating, and honest.
