ATLANTA, GA – October 2, 2012— GMC TV, America’s favorite television channel for uplifting family entertainment, will present the world television premiere of the GMC World Premiere Movie October Baby starring John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard, “Smallville”), Jasmine Guy (“A Different World”), Jason Burkey and newcomer Rachel Hendrix as a college freshman in search of her identity. The film also stars “American Idol” finalist Chris Sligh in his feature film debut. October Baby will premiere on GMC TV Sunday, October 14 at 7, 9 and 11 p.m., with encore broadcasts on Sunday, October 21 at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. All times are eastern.
When Hannah (Rachel Hendrix), suddenly collapses on stage during a production, she confronts her parents about her health-challenged medical history. She discovers that she is the survivor of a late-term abortion and that her parents, Jacob and Grace (John Schneider and Jennifer Price) are actually her adopted parents. Shell-shocked, she decides to go on a road trip with her friends but detours from the group with her long-time pal and confidant, Jason (Jason Burkey), to track down her biological mother (Shari Rigby). Jasmine Guy (Nurse Mary) stars as the nurse who witnessed Hannah’s birth years before.
“I’ve written, produced or directed hundreds of millions of dollars of successful Hollywood content and I’ve never seen a more profound reaction to a movie,” said Dave Alan Johnson, executive producer. “The cast is powerful, with a ‘tour de force’ performance from newcomer Rachel Hendrix. Jon and Andy Erwin are major talents and have directed a very compelling and entertaining movie.”
October Baby is co-directed by siblings and first time directors from Birmingham, Alabama, Jon and Andrew Erwin, winners of multiple Dove Awards for music videos featuring contemporary Christian artists such as Casting Crowns, Michael W. Smith and Francesca Battistelli. Dave Alan Johnson (“Doc,” “Sue Thomas: F.B. Eye”) is executive producer.
