Spend your evening tweeting with Team YRR on Twitter during AND immediately following the US broadcast premiere of AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART on Wednesday, May 15th starting at 8pm (EDT)!
If you want to comment on the film or you have questions about the film-making process (i.e., how the film went from a dream to a reality; what was it like working with Rick Springfield; etc.), we want to tweet with you.
NOTE: There may be some surprise guests.
The movie will be airing again so don’t think this is your only chance to see the film — it’s just the first opportunity for many people in the USA to see it … plus, don’t forget, the DVD and BluRay will be released in mid-July 2013 and will include a ton of extra scenes/materials — a must have for any Rick Springfield fan or documentary enthusiast — pre-orders are available now at: www.rickspringfielddoc.com/yellowrickroad/store.

The programming committee told us that this year’s festival program PLANETE + DOC will include the best documentaries from around the world produced in the last year. To say we are honored to be in considered one of the best docs in the world would be an understatement. We are ECSTATIC!

SIDE NOTE: How many of you Rick Springfield fans can name the song the “a million miles from America” lyric comes from?
As everyone celebrates the 50th Anniversary of GENERAL HOSPITAL and patiently awaits the return of Dr. Noah Drake, we wanted to post some photos of the stars of GENERAL HOSPITAL who have joined us on the YELLOW RICK ROAD and thank them for embracing the wonderful side of fandom with us.
Check out the photos below and see if you can name all the actors and the characters they play on GENERAL HOSPITAL.
A couple of these actors will be popping up on our DVD extras — they talk about their connection with Rick Springfield as well as other insider info (here’s a link to pre-order the DVD: www.rickspringfielddoc.com/yellowrickroad/store)
Also, check out this video of Jack “Frisco Jones” Wagner singing on the 2011 Rick Springfield and Friends Cruise: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78Yqx4ilHs8&feature=share&list=UU09sTFJlszKA1PIvEz-0Hqg
Although we didn’t have our sign with us to mark that he was officially on the Yellow Rick Road, we do want to thank Tony Geary (“Luke Spencer”) for being such an amazing tour guide in Amsterdam … we were there for the European Premiere of AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART this past November. Tony lives in Amsterdam when he’s not filming GENERAL HOSPITAL. He was gracious enough to show us and Rick around his hometown … and Brandon Barash just happened to be in town, too. It turned out to be an impromptu GH reunion.
In addition, we want to acknowledge the activating powers of the WONDER TWINS (Nancy & Penny Hubbard of New Jersey). These two fabulous VIP Crew Members made a commitment to get as many cast members of GENERAL HOSPITAL on the Yellow Rick Road as they could … and boy did they deliver! They get credit for the majority of these photos (we can only take credit for the last four shots). Thanks, Ladies!
AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART is heading to Greece for the 15th Thessaloniki Documentary Festival. The festival kicks off on March 15th and runs thru March 24th.
There will be two screenings of AN AFFAIR OF THE HEART … the first showing is on Sunday, March 17th with a second screening on Saturday, March 23rd.
The Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, part of the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, presents approximately 200 films (shorts and features) by directors from all over the world. It’s a non-competitive event. However, there are two Audience Awards as well as awards in conjunction with ERT3, Amnesty International and the WWF.

We have been teasing that we have a BIG announcement to share and how VERY, VERY exciting it is, but we had to leave it at that … UNTIL NOW!
Ladies and Gentleman … (drumroll, please — Thanks, Rodger!) … we are tickled pink (oops, we mean “yellow”) to announce that our film has been acquired by EPIX and will be broadcast on TV and via an on-line subscription starting on Wednesday, May 15, 2013!
An Affair of the Heart is the season finale of EPIX’s 2013 eight part documentary series, EPIX DOCS. The other seven docs in the series are ones we are extremely proud to be affiliated with … and the fact we are the season finale is simply AWESOME (and quite humbling considering the record breaking number of quality docs available right now)!
Here’s a link to the official press announcement put out by EPIX: http://press.epixhd.com/press-releases/epix-original-doc-amare-in-the-moment/
If you are not familiar with EPIX, feel free to go on their website (www.epixhd.com) and take a look around! You can even sign up for a FREE trial subscription in the event your cable/satellite provider does not carry EPIX! Bar none, they have the most incredible library of films!
EPIX is a joint venture between: Paramount, MGM and Lionsgate … three MONUMENTAL players in the entertainment world.
This broadcast acquisition with EPIX is for the USA only (anyone in the US can subscribe on-line if you don’t get the network on your TV), but don’t worry if you are not in the US … we are still exploring distribution options outside the US and will keep you posted as we solidify our plans. Please keep posting how much you want to see An Affair of the Heart everywhere you can and telling people to follow @YellowRickRoad on Facebook and Twitter … the more buzz there is, the more international distributors will pay attention and want the film.
