Smother Movie on TV

The movie Smother, a comedy & drama starring Diane Keaton and Liv Tyler, is on TV nationwide in the U.S. five times in the next week.  Why am I mentioning it on my blog?
Our IKAN Bowler was selected as a product to be used in the movie.  It has a brief appearance, and a slightly odd one at that.  I don’t want to give anything away (to spoil the scene) but I will say the IKAN Bowler is attached to a three-wheeled scooter.  That was a shock to us, since it’s designed for wheelchairs.  However, we were impressed that the Hollywood people were able to attach it to a scooter, and we are looking into the possibility of adapting our IKAN Bowler for use with common three-wheeled scooters that people with limited mobility use.
So, if you’re interested in watching Smother, here’s the upcoming schedule:
Sat. Jan. 3 9:00 PM Eastern on Lifetime
Sun. Jan. 4 12:00 AM Eastern on Lifetime
Sun. Jan. 4 9:00 PM Eastern on Lifetime
Mon. Jan. 5 12:00 AM Eastern on Lifetime
Tue. Jan. 6 9:00 PM Eastern on Lifetime

About billgator97

I started this blog to highlight how wheelchair users, especially power wheelchair users, are being empowered through sport, in particular: dynamic wheelchair bowling. It's actually bowling that emulates the able-bodied bowling process, i.e. setup, then physically approach and release the ball upon stopping short of the foul line. I happen to be paralyzed from my neck down, and ventilator-dependent, yet I've actually bowled 24 legitimate games of 200 or better. I say that NOT to brag, but to show what is possible and make the point that ANY wheelchair user who can safely operate their chair, they can bowl (I helped invent a device that makes it possible). Please look around and feel free to ask any questions! Thanks and God bless!
