It’s a little fuzzy why TV Guide Network would devote an hour specifically to “Precious,” other than that the movie is a Lionsgate release, and the channel is controlled by Lionsgate.
Here’s the announcement:
TV Guide Network will air an
exclusive one-hour special on the six-time Academy Award® nominated film “Precious:
Based on the Novel
‘Push’ by Sapphire,” a Lionsgate® release. The special, hosted by
veteran television personality Tanika Ray, documents the film’s
extraordinary journey from page to screen, and includes
never-before-seen film footage, exclusive interviews with the director
and cast members, and emotional reactions from filmgoers who have seen
the movie and been touched by its story. “Precious: The Story
Behind the Movie” premieres Saturday, February
20 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on TV Guide Network.
