(NewsUSA) - These days, everyone is looking for, and finding heroes in our communities and our world. General entertainment television network INSP, whose tagline is "Heroes Live Here," may have what you need with their Duke Days of May, a special programming event which features the films of John Wayne, aka "The Duke."
"In times of uncertainty, people gravitate towards heroic characters who overcome adversity. For some, there is no one who embodies this more than the iconic John Wayne," says Doug Butts, SVP of Programming for INSP, a network with a focus on action, adventure, and heroic characters.
"This May will mark the sixth year that we have devoted a month of weekends to a mix of The Duke's most popular and beloved films, which has become an extremely popular and successful event for our network," according to Butts.
The INSP network regularly features a reliable lineup of exclusive and original series, along with timeless Western films and action-filled dramas. Original series include the popular reality show, "The Cowboy Way," which follows the adventures of three modern-day cowboys and their families, and "Ultimate Cowboy Showdown," a competition series in which modern-day cowboys, men and women, put their real-world skills to the test in a range of events. The series is hosted by country music icon Trace Adkins.
In addition, the network airs classic Western-themed fare, including "Gunsmoke" and "Bonanza," as well as the family-friendly Depression-era drama, "The Waltons."
