With hit singles like "We are Family," "He's the Greatest Dancer," and "All American Girls," Sister Sledge will forever be a part of Pop and R&B history. Now sisters Joni and Debra Sledge team up with industry veterans Neal Ardman, John Oxendine and Ricardo Dias to produce the group's first Christmas Special. The special is slated for air in 2013 and will star Joni Sledge, Debbie Sledge and a cast of seventies and eighties celebrities.Broadcast Partner's Neal Ardman said, "Our Christmas Specials always do very well and our entire team could not be more excited about working with these incredibly talented and very special ladies. It is time to bring back the true variety show format and no one is better suited than the Sister's Sledge to revive the format".John Oxendine was quoted as saying, "I am very proud to have the opportunity to work with Joni and Debbie Sledge, who, with their two other sisters (Kathy and Kim) created 'We Are Family' and are now collaborating with Neal Ardman, a longtime friend, business associate and syndicator to produce a Christmas Special we can all look forward to enjoying...for decades! Sister Sledge was one of those rare groups to transcend both POP and R&B.""United Teleports is very pleased to have been selected for distributing and making this exciting event available worldwide through its satellite network coverage," said CEO Ricardo Dias.
