When former tennis pro Owen ?Game Set? Match (Josh Hopkins, TV's Cougar Town) gets fired from his cushy job at the affluent Fountain Club, he?s forced to take a position at the not-so-posh public courts of the Derby City Recreation Center. There, he contends with his new co-workers, a ragtag group of tennis misfits; his boss, single mom Sherry (Alexie Gilmore, World's Greatest Dad); and her son Jake (Cameron Monaghan, TV?s Shameless), a teenaged goth and secret tennis hopeful. Slowly Owen wins over his colleagues, mends his broken friendships, helps Jake fix his serve, and even makes a love connection with Sherry. But just when things are looking up, Owen?s former boss and court nemesis challenges the rec center to a showdown in the annual Combo Cup tournament. As he leads his team of oddball amateurs, Owen learns the most valuable lesson of all: on the court or off, everyone deserves a second chance. A raucous sports comedy in the tradition of Caddyshack, 2ND SERVE co-stars Sam McMurray (Raising Arizona, Christmas Vacation), Kevin Sussman (TV's Ugly Betty, Hitch) and Guillermo Díaz (TV's Weeds and Scandal).

A powerful, emotional and relevant reminder of the heartbreaking toll war takes on the innocent, this award-winning documentary tells the story of the Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, in the early days of World War II. As part of a campaign to conquer all of China, the Japanese subjected Nanking?which was then China's capital?to months of aerial bombardment, and when the city fell, the Japanese army unleashed murder and rape on a horrifying scale. In the midst of the rampage, a small group of Westerners banded together to establish a Safety Zone where over 200,000 Chinese found refuge. Unarmed, these missionaries, university professors, doctors and businessmen?including a Nazi named John Rabe?bore witness to the events, while risking their own lives to protect civilians from slaughter. The story is told through deeply moving interviews with Chinese survivors, chilling archival footage and photos, testimonies of former Japanese soldiers?and a staged reading of the Westerners' letters and diaries by Woody Harrelson, Mariel Hemingway, Jurgen Prochnow and others. NANKING is a testament to the courage and conviction of individuals who were determined to act in the face of evil and a powerful tribute to the resilience of the Chinese people?a gripping account of light in the darkest of times. This version of the film features descriptive narration for the blind and visually impaired, created by the Narrative Television Network.
