President Trump’s choice to lead the Environmental Protection Agency might put it on the endangered species list.
Moyers takes on President Trump’s choice to lead the Environmental
Protection Agency. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt has a track
record of putting the business interests of the energy sector before the
environmental and health interests of the public. He has spent his
career fighting the rules and regulations of the agency he is now being
nominated to lead. His expected confirmation threatens to make America
great for polluters again.
Acker will star as Kate Stewart, a woman who is struggling with her separation from her husband Reed (Moyer) and her increasingly challenging teenage children. When her family situation takes a dark turn, she finds that she’s stronger than she thinks. (x)
