Star Movies Select HD to launch new property ‘True Stories’ on 3 Apr
MUMBAI: Celebrating stories with properties like ‘Book Adaptations’ and ‘Films To See Before You Die’, Star Movies Select HD has introduced new property called ‘True Stories’ for the month of April. It will air from 3 April, every Monday–Friday, at 6.30 pm.
The property has been curated with true stories about some of the most iconic individuals, defining sporting events and historic moments of war. The line-up will include the inspiring story of Erin Brockovich, which narrates how one woman stood up against a corporate giant and prevailed. This will be followed by ‘Joy’, the story of the inventor Joy Mangano, who built a business empire against all odds.
‘True Stories’ will also feature films like ‘Moneyball’, in which a seasoned baseball manager builds an unbeatable team using statistical analysis; and ‘Chariots of Fire’, the story of two British track athletes, one a determined Jew and the other a devout Christian who compete in the 1924 Olympics.
The channel will also showcase true stories like ‘Glory’, the remarkable tale of Robert Shaw, an officer in the Federal Army during the American Civil War who volunteered to lead the first company of black soldiers and fight prejudice; and ‘Men of Honour’, the indomitable true story of Carl Brashear, who was determined to be the first African American navy diver in a time where racism was rife.
