PREMIERING SEPTEMBER 4TH, 2017
ROOTS RUN DEEP
HOSTED BY MACKENZIE KIMBRO
Mackenzie here, excited to share some very big news!
Earlier this year, I was offered an amazing opportunity by Patrick Gottsch, owner and founder of RFD-TV, after he visited our ranch with a mutual friend for lunch, which included conversations about our lifestyle, and an explanation of my unconventional path since high school and my goals for life moving forward. We discussed one of my biggest dreams, producing a tv show all-encompassing of our lives here in the Malpai Borderlands of southeast Arizona, from the ranching to the hunting and conservation work to the cooking and food to the cowboy and southwest culture (artisans, poetry, etc). Like I said, an amazing opportunity came about and this show is HAPPENING!
The first one-hour special, “Roots Run Deep” will PREMIERE Labor Day, September 4th, 2017!
This heartfelt first hour is a tribute to my late grandmother Wendy Glenn, and shows how her legacy is living on in all that we do. Besides giving a glimpse into our lives and her memory, the show highlights our annual Wendy Glenn Memorial Event Fundraiser from this past May, which entails a huge goat roping, a live auction, a massive silent auction, dancing to an amazing band out of Texas, and a big BBQ dinner, which we prepared ourselves! You’ll see all of the fun that we had that Event weekend, including a special dinner for our band and crew at our ranch house the night before the big day, as well as a large luncheon at the house the day after the event! Food is a unifying thread through all of our concepts, as this is meant to be a cooking show as well, so there will be recipes shared and glimpses into my coffeetable cookbook, “Roots Run Deep: Our Ranching Tradition.”
We have all worked very hard to get this first hour put together, and I truly am so proud of the way it has turned out! I must say though, as the premiere date nears, the anticipation grows and I really do hope everyone loves watching the show as much as we loved making it!
And, there is more to come! We have already started filming content for future episodes, so be on the lookout for updates as time goes by!
