Posted on April 23rd, 2013


Starring Patrick Warburton (Emperor’s New Groove, Men in Black II) and Lauren Holly (NCIS, Picket Fences) as Jeff and Ruth Elliott, Hoovey recounts the story of their son, Eric “Hoovey” Elliott, a promising athlete with a passion for basketball whose dreams were threatened by a near-fatal brain tumor. Battling back from surgery, Hoovey had to relearn how to walk, read, even see clearly. With medical bills pushing his family to the brink of ruin, only their faith and deep love for one another offered hope.

Directed by McNamara (Soul Surfer), Hoovey features Cody Linley (Hannah Montana, Melissa & Joey), Alyson Stoner (Phineas and Ferb, Cheaper by the Dozen), Alexandria Deberry (Hart of Dixie, A.N.T. Farm), Brandon Smith (Unfabulous), Glenn Morshower (24, After Earth, Dallas) and Charles Robinson (Hart of Dixie, Night Court). Produced by EchoLight executives Bobby Downes and Chris Morrow, with Dutch Hofstetter (Soul Surfer) and Chad Gundersen (The Redemption of Henry Myers).
