5 X HALF-HOUR DOCUMENTARY SERIES FOR TV AND WEB
Each episode of Shameless Idealists provides an intimate portrait of a celebrity who has made an indelible mark through their work for social change.
The series was produced by Kensington Communications for Free the Children and aired on CTV.
Richard Branson and his daughter Holly, Magic Johnson, Nelly Furtado, Rick Hansen, Roméo Dallaire, and former child soldier Michel Chikwanine each share how they moved from a modest beginning to celebrity status, and how they turned their fame into an effective force for social change. Woven throughout are personal observations from host Craig Kielburger, along with archival imagery and footage illustrating key moments in the lives of these Shameless Idealists.
