ANTI-BULLYING MOVIE AIRS ON UPTV TONIGHT
As part of National Bullying Prevention Month
Oct. 17, 2014: Gradual Elevate Media’s newest production, NOWHERE SAFE, starring Natasha Henstridge, Jamie Kennedy and Danielle Chuchran, will air tonight, Friday, October 17 at 9:00 p.m. EDT on UPTV (www.uptv.com)., as the UPTV “Family Friday Night Movie”. “Nowhere Safe” will re-air again on Sunday, October 19 at 5:00 p.m. EST.
Inspired by true events, NOWHERE SAFE follows the plight of a teenage girl who is forced to leave her school due to cyberbullying. The movie shows the negative effects of bullying, as well as the difference one person can make by being a courageous upstander.
With the additions of the Internet and cell phones, bullying now goes from the classroom to home and beyond. “In today’s electronically connected world, there is truly nowhere safe”, said Paul Parkinson, President of Gradual Elevate Media.
Noted youth mentor and coach, Dan Johns, said, “Of all the movies made over the years with a bullying theme, NOWHERE SAFE is the most realistic, timely and inspiring. A perfect example of what Hollywood ought to be – yes, entertaining, but also encouraging and uplifting to our nation’s young people.” Annelie Rudlaff of Christian Film Database said, “This is one of the most powerful films I’ve ever seen”.
UP is the television entertainment brand promising to always uplift you. UP can be found on most cable systems, as well as DirecTV channel 338, Dish channel 188, and Verizon FIOS channel 224. For more information on NOWHERE SAFE on UP, please visit http://www.uptv.com/
UP Senior Vice President of Programming, Sophia Kelley, said, “We are proud to help call attention to the increased concern about bullying by showing (NOWHERE SAFE) during National Bullying Prevention Month. Bullying is an issue that kids and adults are facing today and one that concerns us.”
