Christian athlete Tim Tebow will star in an upcoming faith-based soap opera “Hilton Head Island.”
The baseball player and philanthropist will be making a guest appearance in 22-episodes of the PureFlix produced drama series starring Antonio Sabato Jr. (“The Bold And The Beautiful”) and Donna Mills (“Knots Landing”)
This series will air this fall. PureFlix President Greg Gudorf expressed that the reason behind the movie was to feed the hunger for original content.
“There’s clearly an appetite for original content in the streaming video world and we decided it was a hunger we needed to feed.
Our efforts paid off. Our growing subscriber base gravitates toward original series that are new, fresh and can only be seen on our platform.”
Last month, PureFlix launched a sitcom called “Hitting The Breaks” starring David A.R. White (“God’s Not Dead“).
Original programming on the Christian streaming service, such as “PureFlix Comedy All-Stars,” “After The Encounter,” and “Pure Talk” have proven to be successful and given Gudorf the confidence to move forward with groundbreaking Christian programming.
“The popularity and success of The Encounter series was the driving force for us to expand our original content lineup.”
It gave us the confidence to keep on developing new original series and programs.”
Pure Flix has made it clear that providing family friendly content is a primary goal for the streaming service.
