Available on DVD from PBS Distribution on November 7th
Arlington, Va. – October 16, 2017 – PBS Distribution announced that they will be releasing the “L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES THE GOOD STARS” on DVD. The second installment of the classic best-selling Lucy Maud Montgomery story of a free-spirited teenager on Prince Edward Island returns after the successful Thanksgiving 2016 premiere, which reached more than 3.2 million viewers.
“L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES THE GOOD STARS” will be available on DVD November 7, 2017. The run time is approximately 90 minutes, and has an SRP of $19.99. The program will also be available for digital download.
In this installment, Anne Shirley turns 13 and faces complex situations with friends, learns from inspirational adults, and experiences an escalating friendship with Gilbert. Her free-spirited nature is challenged by her perceived need to be sensible, a journey fraught with confusion and some unfortunate — albeit amusing — mishaps.
The program, written and directed by John Kent Harrison will once again star critically acclaimed actor Martin Sheen as Matthew Cuthbert, along with the return of Ella Ballentine as Anne Shirley (“The Captive”) and Sara Botsford (“E.N.G.”) as Marilla Cuthbert.
Additional cast members include Julia Lalonde (“Catch a Christmas Star“) as Diana Barry, Kate Hennig (“Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould“) as Rachel Lynde, Stefani Kimber (“Remember”) as Josie Pye, Drew Haytaoglu (“Looks Just Like the Sun“) as Gilbert Blythe, Kyle Gatehouse (“Source Code”) as Mr. Phillips and Linda Kash (“Cinderella Man”) as Mrs. Barry.
“L.M. MONTGOMERY’S ANNE OF GREEN GABLES THE GOOD STARS” was produced by Breakthrough Entertainment in association with Corus Entertainment’s YTV and the author’s granddaughter, Kate Macdonald Butler, who served as executive producer.
