For DirecTV subscribers worried that The 101
would go to waste by broadcasting content solely in SD, we've excellent news. Just weeks after announcing its first HD series
on the channel and boasting that it would be covering the South by Southwest Music Festival
in high-def, along comes news that yet another series is on deck. Hometown Heroes
will reportedly hone in on everyday people "who make a difference in their community," and will seek to inspire viewers throughout the ten-part series to take action in their own neighborhoods. Things get kicked off on April 6th at 9:00PM ET /PT, and we have all ideas we'll be seeing a lot more content where this came from.
