ATLANTA March 27, 2019 UPtv, the television home for uplifting entertainment, will be amplifying this promise in April with a robust weekend movie offering the entire month. Beginning Friday, April 5th, UPtv’s month-long Easter celebration includes a combination of powerful biblical stories, uplifting contemporary premieres and blockbuster faith movies. With over 20 titles, UPtv remains the only place to find the biggest collection of uplifting, inspiring titles that truly celebrate the season.

This year’s lineup includes the U.S. television premiere of The Healer  on Sunday, April 7 at 7 p.m. ET, as well the U.S. television premiere of New Life on Easter Sunday, April 21, at 7 p.m. ET. In The Healer, a young man discovers that he is the next in a long line of men in his family who have the power to heal. Trying to understand it and the new reality that it offers, a teenage girl with terminal cancer unexpectedly shows him the way. The movie stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House), Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones), Camilla Luddington (Grey’s Anatomy) and Jorge Garcia (Lost ). In New Life, Ben (Jonathan Patrick More, Blindspot) and Ava (Erin Bethea, Fireproof ) are childhood sweethearts who build a beautiful life together, and their love grows stronger every day. When life takes a turn neither of them expect, their future and the life they planned will never be the same.

“As the home for uplifting programming, we’re thrilled to bring back our tentpole event bigger than ever and filled with inspirational movies every weekend all April long,” said Amy Winter, evp and general manager, UPtv. “From epic biblical movies including our Palm Sunday airing of The Passion of the Christ  to contemporary new premieres like New Life on Easter Sunday, UPtv delivers a powerful slate for families to share and celebrate with this Easter season.”
