FARMINGTON — Kim and Krickitt Carpenter and their son and daughter were interviewed on Monday for Oprah Winfrey's show "Oprah: Where Are They Now?"
"We update viewers on Oprah's favorite guests," said Leah Sparkes, Oprah Winfrey Network spokeswoman.
In November 1993, Kim, now San Juan County's manager, and Krickitt, now a Farmington High School substitute teacher, were in an automobile crash on I-40 that knocked Krickitt into a coma and left her with a less than 1 percent chance of living.
When she woke, she was without any memories of her husband, Kim, who she married 10 weeks before the crash.
But because they vowed "Till death do us part," they remained married.
The wreck and ensuing amnesia spurred the book "The Vow: The Kim and Krickitt Carpenter Story," which was published in 2000. The book then inspired the movie "The Vow," which was released in 2012 and starred Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum.
No air date has been confirmed, Sparks said, but Kim Carpenter said he was told their interview will air at the end of the summer.
Kim Carpenter said he and his family were mailed a black case containing a high-definition camera, laptop, microphone and professional lighting, and they spoke with Winfrey through Skype. They are now being shipped a camera to shoot supplemental footage and pictures for the show to use later.
"The show is becoming very popular," Kim Carpenter said, "and they want to know if there'll be a Vow 2."
He said he hopes so. He and Krickitt have sent a script and story line to be reviewed.
Krickitt Carpenter said Winfrey first interviewed them in 1996 for The Oprah Winfrey Show, and they were immediately "thrown into the media." But, she said, their lives haven't changed.
"The biggest blessing, the biggest thing," she said, "is we kept our commitment."
