Catch Mitch Albom's "For One More Day" this evening

If you've watched WXYZ-Channel 7 at all this week, then you've likely seen the spots promoting the movie version of Detroit-author Mitch Albom's book, For One More Day.

Produced by the queen of Daytime talk, Oprah Winfrey, Albom's tale of redemption stars Michael Imperioli, best known as Christopher from 'The Sopranos', as a washed up baseball star who gets to spend one more day with his mother, Posey. Detroit-born Ellen Burtsyn plays Posey.

Harpo Films produced the film for ABC. Oprah Winfrey and Kate Forte are the executive producers.

Lloyd Kramer ("Mitch Albom's The Five People You Meet in Heaven") directed the film, and Mitch Albom wrote the teleplay.

The previous collaboration by Oprah Winfrey, Kate Forte and Mitch Albom, "Tuesdays with Morrie," yielded four Emmy® wins, including Outstanding Made-for-Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Mini-Series or Movie.

For One More Day premieres tonight at 9 pm.
