Finally responding to Shoni Schimmel’s great play—and the interest her background and play have created—Discovery Communications has decided to air SLAM friend Jon Hock’s awesome film about Shoni and her family.
The movie, Off the Rez, aired once in 2011 on TLC but hasn’t been seen since. Discovery is rectifying this to some degree by airing it tomorrow night at 6 p.m. on Discovery Fit & Health. No, we hadn’t heard of the channel either, but Wiki says it’s in 49 million homes. If you’re gonna watch the Louisville-UConn game tomorrow night and you get that channel, we’d advise you peep the movie first.
