FOX Sports Southwest Debuts Shooting Stars on Aug 3rd

Imagine being 16 with a gift and a dream. Imagine being given an opportunity that could change your life. Imagine the world watching as your future might be decided.

Independent Houston-based production company SWD Productions, LLC is proud to announce the debut of Shooting Stars, a five episode documentary-style show to premiere on FOX Sports Houston and FOX Sports Southwest on Tuesday, August 3rd at 5pm CST.

Shooting Stars tells the universal story of passion and hope; courage and fear; heartbreak and success. Since June of 2009, SWD principal Greg Ferris and his team have followed young soccer players as they try to fulfill their dreams of one day becoming professionals.  From their home lives through the grueling Elite Camp tryouts and beyond, Houston Dynamo Academy hopefuls compete to make the Houston Dynamo Academy Team, with the hope of ultimately making the Houston Dynamo itself.

Shooting Stars will air Tuesdays in August at 5pm CST on FOX Sports Houston and FOX Sports Southwest, with multiple rebroadcasts throughout the week on FOX Sports Houston.  The two networks combined cover Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, reaching nearly 8.6 million homes.
