Daily Bread

I was asked to review this new Series, Daily Bread. I just finished watching the first episode, and while it is starting off a little slow, I am intrigued and can't wait to binge watch the remaining episodes. With everything that is going one in our world today, its making me want to get ourselves prepared for what it to come if something like this happens in real life.

Daily Bread Season 1 Trailer



Action-Packed New Series Imagines a World Gone Dark, Depicts the Struggle to Survive While Holding on to Humanity. DAILY BREAD, a story that may yet be ripped from the headlines, to premiere Sept. 8 on RWPVIDEO

People from all walks of life, with all levels of faith in God and government, must search for something to hold onto when they lose their grip on everything they’ve known in DAILY BREAD, a new faith-based, post-apocalyptic series launching its first season Sept. 8.

When a solar flare knocks out electricity globally, life changes in an instant for friends, families and total strangers who find themselves bound together in rebuilding their lives without the modern conveniences and luxuries society has long taken for granted. Their safety, and in some cases their sanity, are threatened as they take their tentative first steps into this new world.

DAILY BREAD will be released “binge style” – all episodes available at once – on Sept. 8. Information on how and where to view it can be found at RWPVIDEO

Who's ready for Christmas??



I am working again with Gracehill media, and am excited to share this movie with you all. I am excited to see this movie. "The Man Who Invented Christmas", it stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Beauty and the Beast), Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Carribean, Miss Saigon) and screen legend Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music, A Beautiful Mind.

This looks like a fun family film that will be in theaters on Friday, November 22. Just in time for this holiday season! Dan Stevens brings beloved author Charles Dickens to life as we follow the inspiration that helped him craft one of the most cherished novels of all time, A Christmas Carol.

Synopsis: The Man Who Invented Christmas tells of the magical journey that led to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge (Christopher Plummer), Tiny Tim and other classic characters from A Christmas Carol. Directed by Bharat Nalluri (MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY), the film shows how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) mixed real life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure up unforgettable characters and a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.



Stayed tuned, there might be some other fun things coming relating to the movie!!
