First of Four-Part Docuseries to Premiere This Weekend on Broadcast TV

NEW YORK, April 24, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- AIM Tell-A-Vision® Group (AIM TV), producers of the nation's most-watched travel show, Raw Travel, announced that the first part of their four-part docuseries, "My Summer in Ukraine," premieres April 27-28 with Chapter One: "Silence is Death."

Chapter Two: "Answering the Call," premieres May 4-5, followed by Chapter Three: "I Made a Promise," on May 11-12, and the finale, Chapter Four: "Fight for Peace," will hit broadcast TV on May 18-19, 2024. 

Based on Raw Travel Producer and Host Robert G. Rose's travels in Ukraine in the summer of 2023, the film showcases the indomitable spirit of Ukrainians in a war zone. Rose also profiles various humanitarians, filmmakers, and soldiers, highlighting their courage and commitment.

Rose's journey was deeply personal and emotionally charged, taking him to L'viv, Kyiv, Bucha, Hostomel, Irpin, Kherson, Odesa, Mykolaiv, Kharkiv, and various villages. He weaves in other personal experiences, such as advocating for aid to Ukraine in Washington, D.C., and an American friend volunteering to fight in Ukraine, to create a compelling narrative that resonates.

"It's an honor to be part of Ukraine's fight for freedom and survival," stated Rose. "However, it's an honor I would gladly forego if it meant Ukrainians didn't have to suffer through this horrific, illegal, and unjust attack on their sovereignty and very existence. It feels like my life purposely led me here, so I'm committed to Ukraine until victory and beyond," Rose continues. 

By the end of the four-week broadcasts, viewers in 185 U.S. cities representing 97% of US TV homes will be able to view "My Summer in Ukraine," with an expected tune-in audience of between 3.5 and 4.5 million viewers for the four weekends.

"My Summer in Ukraine" is not just a story of tragedy but also a testament to the resilience and hope of the Ukrainian people. Rose captures heartwarming scenes at orphanages and humanitarian centers and a particularly moving moment when Raw Travel videographer Anastasia Zui reconnects with her fater after he'd spent many weeks fighting in Bakhmut. These moments of joy and resilience will leave the audience optimistic and hopeful.

The producers have also created a platform for action with which features curated content, tips, and ways to help Ukraine while learning crucial history and facts. By engaging with this platform, the audience can support Ukraine's journey to recovery.
