A number of cable channels have played Oliver Stone's hit movie "Wall Street," but a proposed network company called the Destiny Channel is the only one that will follow it with a discussion show dealing with the ethics of Michael Douglas' character. "Ethics and morality will be an important part of the Destiny Channel," said Judith Tolkow, senior vice-president of programming for the network. Tolkow also said, "But we're not going to hit people over the head with messages. Our programming will be entertaining." The network will start by selling individual shows, beginning in August 2004, to educational channels available only to students on college campuses.
