First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Jill Biden Join Blue Star Families, This Emotional Life Producers to Support Military Families
Date:11/11/2009

WASHINGTON, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of the 1.8 million men and women who have been deployed in America's Armed Services and their families, Vulcan Productions, NOVA/WGBH and PBS are honored to join Blue Star Families in a Veterans Day program featuring First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. In the first part of the event, community volunteers on the George Washington University campus gathered to prepare 500 care packages for military families. Later, Mrs. Obama and Dr. Biden joined dozens of representatives from civilian and military organizations to honor those working in support of military families.

Vulcan Productions is working with Blue Star Families as part of a multi-year, multi-platform campaign intended to help people live happier, more meaningful lives by better understanding and managing their emotions. The cornerstone of the groundbreaking project is a PBS documentary, This Emotional Life, premiering January 4-6, 2010, at 9 p.m. (check local listings), and hosted by renowned Harvard psychologist and best-selling author of Stumbling on Happiness Daniel Gilbert. The three-part series, a co-production of NOVA/WGBH Science Unit and Vulcan Productions, weaves together the compelling personal stories of ordinary people searching for happiness with the latest information on brain science research, along with revealing comments from celebrities such as Richard Gere, Chevy Chase and Alanis Morissette.

The filmmakers from Kunhardt McGee Productions were granted intimate access to the struggles of ordinary people from all walks of life, including three veterans who have bravely faced the physical, mental and emotional challenges experienced in connection with their service. The film also includes interviews with experts who are working to help returning service members and their families overcome challenges to emotional wellness.
