Press release from: Gemelli Films Incorporated

The faith-based streaming service PureFlix has ordered a new series Welcome to Hope. The series, produced by Gemelli Films, will be a ten episode dramedy with a subsequent stand-alone Christmas film.

Welcome to Hope stars Broadway veteran Jon Hacker as Jessie McNeil, a man nearing 30 that returns to his hometown of Hope, NY for a fresh start after his mother Mary (Tara Westwood) passes away. The core cast is rounded out by Taryn Hacker (Magic in Mount Holly), Anthony Pallino (New Dogs, Old Tricks), Al Pagano (The Most Dangerous Man) and newcomers Shelby Putlak and Mike Rob. Notable guest appearances include Cara Maria Sorbello (MTV’s The Challenge) and Cody Calafiore (the winner of CBS Big Brother All-Stars). The series is created by the all-female production team of Gemelli Films, helmed by writer/director Candice Cain and producers Amy Minter and Monika Mannix.

“My team and I are thrilled to bring such a heartwarming, relatable series to PureFlix,” said Cain. “It has been a very long time since a wholesome, contemporary family show has been available to audiences. I am grateful for PureFlix giving it a chance to be seen.”

“I’m so excited to bring such amazing, relatable stories to new audiences. These are stories and situations that will really resonate with people,” said star Jon Hacker. “Plus, it is amazing to work opposite of my wife, Taryn.”

Welcome to Hope is currently in production on Long Island, and is set to be released at the end of the summer.
