New Romantic Comedy Produced in Ohio Will Make Your Soul Happy
By: HobbsStyle Casting & Productions
While climbing the corporate ladder, Grace Lawrence has worked herself to death…literally. But getting into Heaven isn't that simple. She now has 7 days to learn all of life's lessons before she meets with The Most Merciful who will determine her ultimate fate.
The film was written by award winning Director Mike Berry, best known for productions such as A State of Mind, Hey Mr. Postman and Rent Due. "I wanted to have some fun with this film and give people a reason to laugh during these trying times," says Berry.
"We utilized all local cast and crew," says Tina Hobbs who is the producer and casting director, "It is important for us to showcase talent from Ohio. Actors commanding the screen include Kamry Williams, Brett Voina, Sarah Alaina, Hakeem Shariff and Daniel Hutchinson.
Sarah Alaina debuted in her first major role with this film. She is the producer's daughter but says she received no special consideration. "I had to go through the audition process like everyone else. I have significant training under my belt and I am happy for the opportunity to show the world my talent."
Production for Grace & Mercy wrapped this past fall. Show times, ticket information and updates can be found at Red Carpet Premier Information.
