Family Entertainment Network INSP to Premiere Latest Movie Produced by INSP Films

The dramatic comedy, “Savannah Sunrise,” will make its television debut exclusively on INSP on Sunday, June 26th at 8:00pm ET

(Indian Land, SC – May 24, 2016) – The feature-length theatrical motion picture Savannah Sunrise will make its television debut exclusively on family entertainment network INSP on Sunday, June 26th at 8:00 pm ET.  The movie is the latest release from INSP Films, the theatrical motion picture production company created by INSP in 2015.  The announcement was made by Doug Butts, SVP of Programming for INSP.

Savannah Sunrise stars Shawnee Smith, (Becker, Anger Management, The Stand, Saw, Who’s Harry Crumb?), and  Pamela Reed (Parks and Recreation, NCIS, CSI, Criminal Minds, Kindergarten Cop, Proof of Life).  It is a dramatic comedy that explores the often complicated relationship between a woman and her mother-in-law.

Straight-laced, type-A personality Joy Miles (Smith) is a driven, hardworking mother of two who runs a successful consulting firm.  She has to take an unscheduled road trip from Louisville, Kentucky, to Savannah, Georgia, to drive her forgetful, yet opinionated, mother-in-law, Loraine (Reed) to her new home in a retirement community.

Loraine, who is quick to dispose of down-home wisdom, is everything her daughter-in-law is not.  Strong-willed yet free-spirited, Loraine takes bathroom breaks while Joy takes conference calls.

While enduring the complications of their interpersonal relationship, Joy and Loraine discover an unlikely bond.  Slowly, a genuine friendship forms.   Joy, who is initially impatient and frustrated by Loraine, begins to develop a sincere appreciation for her mother-in-law as she watches her manage the emotional transition of losing a spouse and leaving her home of more than 30 years.  Despite their many differences, and with light-hearted adventures at every turn, they discover how much they respect and even need each other.

Savannah Sunrise is a humorous yet heartwarming look at the challenges many of us face as our seasons of life change,” said Butts. “In their own ways, viewers will relate to the transitions and insights discovered by these women and find common ground in their own lives.  We believe the film will inspire viewers to take stock of their own priorities and realize the importance of placing value on every moment.”

Savanah Sunrise is produced by INSP Films and distributed by Imagicomm Entertainment.  Gary Wheeler (War Room) and Richard Clark Jr. (Waiting for Butterflies) serve as producers.  Additional cast include Shawn Christian (Days of Our Lives, CSI, Becker), Clare Carey (Coach, NCIS, Chuck), Danny Vinson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Army Wives, Christmas in the Smokies), Madelyn Cline (Children of Wax, The Jury, The Reason) and Vitaly LeBeau (Dark Awakening, Lamia, Before the Snow).

SS imageSavannah Sunrise is a dramatic comedy celebrating the often complicated relationship between a woman and her mother-in-law.  Straight-laced, type-A personality Joy Miles (Smith) is a driven, hardworking mother of two who runs a successful logistic consulting firm.  She has to take an unscheduled road trip from Louisville, Kentucky to Savannah, Georgia to drive her forgetful, yet opinionated, mother-in-law, Loraine (Reed) to her new home in a retirement community.  Loraine, who is quick to dispose of down-home wisdom, is everything her daughter-in-law is not.

Savannah Sunrise is a heartwarming film that will resonate with anyone who may have a complicated relationship with other family members…something many of us can relate to,” says Wheeler.  “The movie touches on the challenges of what happens when life changes, and it reminds viewers to reevaluate what is really important.  We hope the audience will walk away with a renewed sense of determination to cultivate and build on those family relationships.  As we learn in Savannah Sunrise, it is never too late to begin that dialogue.”

INSP Films Completes Production of “Savannah Sunrise”

Indian Land, SC INSP Films has wrapped production of Savannah Sunrise, the newest in a slate of family-friendly movies the company is producing in 2016.

Savannah Sunrise is a dramatic comedy celebrating the often complicated relationship between a woman and her mother-in-law. Straight-laced, type-A personality Joy Miles has to take an unscheduled road trip to drive her forgetful, yet opinionated, mother-in-law, Loraine, from Louisville, Kentucky to Savannah, Georgia. Although initially impatient and frustrated, Joy begins to realize her true affection for Loraine as she takes a front-seat-view of how this strong-willed yet free-spirited woman manages the emotional transition of learning to live life after losing her spouse. Despite their many differences, and with light-hearted adventures at every turn, they discover how much they respect and even need each other.

Gary Wheeler, producer for INSP Films, says the cast and crew resonated with the story. “During filming, we drew on our own experiences dealing with various seasons of life. Loraine is facing the challenges of aging and the difficulties of losing a spouse, whereas Joy is trying to build a successful business while missing out on the relationships that matter the most. Even the actors became involved, refining the script to reflect their own experiences. We all had a lot of fun with the script because the story includes both tense and humorous moments before unfolding into a heartwarming conclusion.”

Joy Miles, played by Shawnee Smith, (Becker, Anger Management, The Stand, Saw, Who’s Harry Crumb?) is an opinionated, driven, hardworking mother of two who runs a successful logistic consulting firm. Pamela Reed (Parks and Recreation, NCIS, CSI, Criminal Minds, Kindergarten Cop, Proof of Life) plays Loraine, Joy’s warm, friendly and welcoming mother-in-law. She is quick to dispose of down-home wisdom, and is everything her daughter-in-law is not.

Additional cast include Shawn Christian (Days of Our Lives, CSI, Becker) and Clare Carey (Coach, NCIS, Chuck).

Savanah Sunrise is produced by INSP Films and distributed by Imagicomm Entertainment. The theatrical premiere is scheduled for late spring 2016. For additional information, please visit www.savannahsunrisemovie.com.
