Happy Friday! Each week, we’ll give you an inside look at some of the items you may have missed and a snapshot of what’s to come. Follow along every Friday to get t­­he latest inside connections.

Beginning Tuesday, July 5, we’ll air “My Fighting Season,” a 6-part documentary series that follows U.S. Soldiers fighting in Afghanistan.  Each soldier was equipped with a body camera that captured all of the action as it happened.  Viewers are put in the middle of combat and will feel the heart pumping experience of walking patrols, conducting medevac rescues, the human dimension of war, and fighting back against the Taliban.

Catch the series on AUDIENCE Network®, available exclusively to DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse customers.
