week, Something to Offer depicts the true story of
entrepreneurs representing various business, professional and artistic
endeavors. The discussion focuses on the genesis of their dream. This
includes the obstacles faced, successes conquered and the joy of making
their dream a reality.
in its 27th year of production, Something to Offer has
enjoyed continual success, a longevity which is rare in television’s
'here-today-gone-tomorrow' environment. Former guests include the
internationally recognized activist Rosa Parks, Academy Award winning
actress Olympia Dukakis, former New York Mayor Edward I. Koch, Lionel
Hampton, Linda Dano, Stedman Graham, and New
York Senator Geraldine Ferraro. Lesser recognized, but equally
significant guests include a seven year old television sports announcer,
an eighty-two year old photographer, independent film makers, fashion
designers, renowned chefs, physicians, authors and even postal workers.
to Offer is a tribute to the concept of the American Dream, and
to those who embody the positive aspects contained in that dream.
It offers what Anne Marie has often described as “a real and tangible
example of people at their best, highlighting the unique courage and
spirit of those who fulfill their impossible dreams.” It
airs on Saturday evening at 7:30 PM on channel 56 in Manhattan. Although
most of the shows are shot in New York, the talk show has been on
location in Michigan, Texas and California.
