REMAND Documentary to Make US Broadcast Premiere on KCET

On October 18 at 10 PM and 10:45 PM PT, KCET will air the award-winning documentary REMAND—the Revolution Pictures film that depicts the firsthand account of Pepperdine University School of Law professor Jim Gash (JD ’93) and Ugandan teenager Tumusiime Henry who worked together to inspire justice reform for an entire country. The US broadcast premiere will be part of KCET and Link TV’s documentary series LINK VOICES. REMAND, which was executive produced by Pepperdine Regent Dale Brown ('64), will air nationally on DirecTV 375 at 10 PM and Dish Network 9410 at 7 PM and 10 PM.

Narrated by Golden Globe winner Angela Bassett, REMAND is a true story of an African boy, an American lawyer, and their long road to justice. Henry was serving time for two murders he did not commit when Gash became involved in the case. The process to help release Henry eventually led to sweeping changes in the Ugandan criminal justice system and impacted thousands of people—including Henry and several other prisoners desperate for justice, whose stories are also told in the film.
