Kyle (aka Clark) McCabe writes to tell us that his “first of two directorial contributions to the nutrition makeover
series ‘Honey We’re Killing the Kids’” will air tonight on The Learning Channel at 9 pm and 11 pm. There will be two repeats on Friday May 19 at 10 pm and (later that night) at 1 am.
Here’s how Kyle describes the show:
my show focuses on a family in rural texas, who struggle to turn their overweight children on to a healthy lifestyle the good old fashioned way–by choosing fruits and vegetables over sugar and fats, and introducing regular exercise. needless to say, the transition is bumpy… but also makes for a dramatic and inspiring story of a family who makes a tremendous effort to change their unhealthy ways.
And here is how TLC describes it:
With Dad working a 100-hour workweek the result is two undisciplined kids who are more obese than 95% of kids their age, and a mom at her wits end who copes through smoking. Dr. Hark will transform their bleak lifestyle in just three weeks.
