So why have we been so quiet? Very nasty winter, was one reason, and we lost some investors when we lost the NC Film Incentive as it use to be structured. The funding is about to be corrected in a few weeks. Now we are finally out of the winter; tired of working in cold freezing weather. Our production has done that before. So as a bear crawls out of his den for spring. We are finally going to finish the next episode, and honor our distribution opportunities. So cast, crew and our fans. Stay tuned.

TRBK TV show is produced in Apex, New Hill and at the New Hope Valley Railway in Bonsal. The show also travels to locations where some of its historical characters actually lived. TRBK satisfies a growing need for quality, family-friendly programming. In spring of 2009, the Association of National Advertisers’ Alliance conducted a critical research effort, which supports this push for family entertainment. The research was designed to better understand what consumers are seeking in family-friendly TV, as well as the impact of programming on the efficacy of advertising. The most important finding was the clear desire for more options when it comes to quality entertainment for the family. In fact, only 23% of respondents reported being satisfied with the amount of family-oriented programming currently available. In addition, in another study conducted jointly between Wal-Mart and Procter & Gamble (P&G), 85% of respondents said they would go out of their way to “find and watch quality, family-friendly programming.”
The Rusty Bucket Kids live in the small, southern town of Peak City, played by the Town of Apex. Roxanna Demers, age 13, who is home-schooled, portrays Roxanna Peakssen, and JohnColeman Demers, age 10, plays JohnColeman Peakssen. The siblings travel back in time on Steamy, played by The New Hope Valley Railway Steam Locomotive No. 17 and Caboose No. 308. Roxanna and JohnColeman visit famous people of American history, who are still in their teenage years.
