The seventh installment in the Family Movie Night entertainment initiative between Procter & Gamble and Walmart is set to air this Saturday at 8 p.m. on NBC. The made-for-TV movie, Who is Simon Miller?, is billed as a heart-pounding summer spy drama that tests the limits to which families will fight for each other that will keep the whole family riveted.
According to promotional materials, like many families, the Millers have their challenges. Simon’s frequent business trips have created distance between him and the rest of the family, leaving his wife, Meredith stretched and struggling to keep things together. Their daughter, Sarah, has recently gotten herself into trouble at school while their son, Kevin, struggles to engage with anything outside of a video game. However, these issues all seem trivial when Simon goes missing.
Once the family realizes all is not as it should be, they frantically search Simon’s office for information. The discovery of a stash of passports, all with Simon’s picture but each with a different alias, reveals that their father has been keeping more than a few secrets. In a frantic phone call, Simon urges the family not to tell anyone of his disappearance, not even the authorities, right before the line goes dead. Who is Simon Miller? And what exactly has he gotten himself, and now his family, into? Despite the drama that ensues, the Millers stick together and show how important it is to trust and rely on family.
The Family Movie Night franchise consists of spy dramas, heartwarming family struggles and science fiction adventures, the unifying theme is that all the films are designed so that families can watch them together without the parents having to dive for the remote when an ad appears about a four-hour erection or violent video game.
