In December 2017, PAK7 shot its first pilot program "Bedtime Story" in the SAT-7 studio in Lebanon. Following in the footsteps of SAT-7's successful series pioneered by Rita El Mounayer the Middle East, the Bedtime Stories will engage young viewers in various Bible stories in a way that appeals to them. Many thanks to Terry Ascott, Rita El Mounayer, Nancy Mansour and everyone at SAT-7 who so generously shared their time, talent and resources to assist us! Our presenter Naina Mall did an amazing job for us! The incoming PAK7 CEO Andrew Hart oversaw the production and insured quality control.
We filmed the pilot in English as well as in Urdu so that global church partners can get a better sense of what the PAK7 programming is like. It will also be a resource to the many parents who want their children to know English as a second language. We plan to air the pilot on the web prior to our launch, which likely won't take place until at least 2020. Stay tuned!
