Keep Your Head Up, Kid - CBC's Don Cherry biopic - airs in two parts Sunday and Monday nights.
It is a "story about success and failure and perseverance." That's how Jared Keeso, who portrays Cherry, describes the film.
The film was written and produced by Don's son Tim, a long time television producer in Canada. While most Canadians know Don as the loud television personality, this movie does not cover that. Instead it chronicles Cherry's life as a youth, a minor league hockey player and long time coach.
CBC has lots more information.
