Dear Herschend Team,
I am thrilled to share that the Harlem Globetrotters are returning to TV after nearly 40 years! Harlem Globetrotters: Play it Forward is an original 30-minute live-action series that will air on NBC’s The More You Know stations (check your local listings) starting this Saturday, October 1, at 11:00 a.m. The series, produced in partnership with Hearst Media Productions, will be hosted by actor and comedian Craig Robinson – known for his roles in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Office, and The Masked Singer.
A few highlights from the first episode include a story of how a young man’s life is changed forever by a visit from his favorite Globetrotter with a strong anti-bullying message; how the Globetrotters help brighten up the court of a local Atlanta community; a Group of DC youth being empowered through water and seeing Hammer take his slam dunk to new heights.
This is a special moment we can all be proud of – bringing an educational entertainment experience to children worldwide. So please join me in tuning in with your families this Saturday!

“Through this program, I had an eye-opening moment. Growing up, I was taught to handle things myself, to never depend on anyone, to take care of my own, and that if I wanted something, only hard work would get it. So, I always felt ashamed to ask others for help because it made me feel incompetent…as if I wasn’t working hard enough. But through this program, you have taught me a valuable lesson – that we’re all in this together as human beings, and everything can’t be done alone – sometimes, you need to depend on others and not be ashamed to ask because this is what God called us here to do.
I would really like to thank you for helping me fix my car. No one has ever shown such kindness and willingness before in my life, and I can’t stress enough how much I appreciate you for helping me. So, thank you again for being my blessing this summer. I know fixing a car might not seem like such a big deal to many, but working for a company that genuinely cares for their employees and can assist and teach them lessons like the one I learned from this experience is unheard of. I am so grateful for this program and for all of you!”

The Dollywood Foundation celebrated International Literacy Month by reaching a major milestone – 1 out of 10 children under the age of five in the United States now receives a book in the mail each month! This milestone was part of a 10-year strategy set back in 2015, but thanks to the Foundation’s more than 3,000 local program partners, that goal was met two years early!Sign Up
