ON THE HEELS OF PROPOSED MERGER WITH GREAT AMERICAN MEDIA, THE SPOTLIGHT SHINES ON PURE FLIX AT THE NATIONAL RELIGIOUS BROADCASTERS CONVENTION 2023
ORLANDO, Fla., May 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Pure Flix, a leader in faith and family-friendly streaming, is a bright light at the annual National Religious Broadcasters Convention. Pure Flix leadership, including co-founder Michael Scott, Chief Marketing Officer Loren Schwartz and Chief Content Officer Linda Blazy, are joined by a dozen faith movie and television stars to share Pure Flix’s part in the growing Christian entertainment revival sweeping the country.
“It’s a truly exciting time for Christian entertainment right now and we’re honored to be a part of it,” said Pure Flix co-founder Michael Scott. “There’s a revival happening in this country — a faith revival and a faith-in-entertainment revival. We’re seeing huge crowds that are hungry for the good news of the gospel and Pure Flix is a place where we can support and encourage their faith journey with authentic and entertaining stories.”
“Great American Media is thrilled to be at NRB alongside Pure Flix to unveil a compelling content slate featuring stories that will entertain and inspire audiences of all ages. We are looking forward to combining our business after the merger closes,” said Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media. Pure Flix previously announced the company will merge with Great American Media’s portfolio of family-friendly cable and FAST (free ad-supporting streaming TV) channels to serve the large and underserved faith and family market.
Just in time for Father’s Day, Pure Flix will debut a new movie that tells a moving story where one man rediscovers his faith, reconnects with his father and follows God’s plan for his life. GOD’S COUNTRY SONG will stream exclusively on Pure Flix beginning June 16. GOD’S COUNTRY SONG was produced by SkipStone Pictures and features 15 original songs, including the theme song “Being The Man,” which resonates with the themes of fatherhood and sacrifice. The songs were performed by Justin Gaston, Coffey Anderson and others and were written by Ryan Fine and Melissa Sheridan for the film.
Pure Flix will debut a first look at the new Original Revelation Road: The Series, starring David A.R. White, Brian Bosworth, Andrea Logan and Bruce Marchiano. The seven-episode series continues the movie franchise of the same name and explores the biblical end times after the Rapture.
