Before OWN's cameras went into the lives of seven Army wives stationed in Alaska, the series was just an idea in the mind of Stephanie Drachkovitch, Co-Owner/VP of 44 Blue Productions, and Executive Producer of Married to the Army: Alaska.
Growing up all over the country and overseas as the daughter of a military family, Stephanie has a unique, insiders perspective on what military life is like for the families left behind when their parents deploy overseas to serve our country. For years, Stephanie tried to get the series made, but the timing just wasn't right. Find out what happened that finally opened the door to the Pentagon and the Army granting permission for the series, and hear what Oprah Winfrey had to say to Stephanie about OWN's ultimate intention for this powerful, first-of-its-kind series.
