Not only is the star of the movie our friend from UofL, Mr. David DeSanctis, but it is a lovely heart-warming movie that will have you glued to your seat from the first minute! We encourage anyone and everyone to head downtown on Saturday and watch Produce!!

Who's excited for this Saturday's Kentucky Premier of Produce: Where Hope Grows, starring Louisville's own- David DeSanctis?! The film will play this Saturday, October 4, at Louisville Slugger Field.
