Sen. Rick Santorum Named CEO of Faith-Friendly EchoLight Studio

Sen. Rick Santorum, who ran a competitive battle for the GOP's presidential ticket in 2012, is the new CEO of EchoLight Studios.

The Dallas-based company produces, finances and markets faith-based, family films across platform.

“I often say that culture is upstream from politics, and I know entertainment  also can be strength and light for people who want to be uplifted and reinforced in their values,”said Santorum, who made the announcement during the June 22 edition of The Huckabee Show on Fox News. “Dallas can become the Hollywood of the faith-and-family movie market. And the keys are great content and economic success ... using money from all over to build out the industry and distribute an authentic product truthful to the faith in people’s lives.”

The company's first theatrical release, The Redemption of Henry Myers, will be released in the fall. EchoLight's second theatrical feature, based on the inspiring tale of Illinois basketball player Eric "Hoovey" Elliott, will hit theaters in 2014. The latter, directed by Soul Surfer's Sean McNamara, is currently in post-production.
