TNECD Announces Launch of "Remastered" Mini-Series
The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development today announced the launch of an original mini-series set to air beginning July 11, 2018 at 8 p.m. EDT, 7 p.m. CDT on RFD-TV.
“Remastered” showcases the personal stories behind six iconic Tennessee brands and their global significance as told by key stakeholders and influencers.
The companies featured in the series include Jack Daniel’s, Lodge Cast Iron, St. Blues Guitars, United Record Pressing, Barrett Firearms Manufacturing and Prophetik Haute Couture.
“Tennessee’s worldwide brand continues to be on the rise and who better to tell these stories than the people closest to and behind the brands themselves,” TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe said. “One of the main focuses of our department is to promote job growth by recruiting companies from around the world to do business in Tennessee. It’s an enormous asset, and among one of our greatest recruitment tools, to be able to showcase well-known Tennessee companies that find success in our state. These companies help strengthen Tennessee’s global reputation of dedicated and skilled craftsmanship across a variety of sectors, and each of these stories is told in a new, unique way.”
In collaboration with Tennessee-based advertising agency Designsensory, “Remastered” was shot and produced over the course of 2017. The series includes appearances by key influencers including John Rich of country music duo Big & Rich, Laura Daily, chief merchant for Cracker Barrel, Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show and Hunter Lewis, editor in chief of Food & Wine magazine.
The first episode of “Remastered” is scheduled to air on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 on RFD-TV. A new episode will air each Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT, 7 p.m. CDT and repeat that evening at 12 a.m. EDT, 9 p.m. PDT.
RFD-TV is the flagship network for Rural Media Group, which is based in Nashville, Tenn. It is the nation’s first 24-hour television network featuring programming focused on the agribusiness, equine and rural lifestyles, along with traditional country music and entertainment.
“Given that RFD-TV’s operational headquarters are right here in Nashville, Tennessee, we found the program ‘Remastered’ to be a natural fit in our lineup,” RFD-TV Vice President of Programming Jeremiah Davis said. “We are excited to partner with the Tennessee Department Economic and Community Development to bring ’Remastered’ to our viewers.”
