‘This is Us’ Chrissy Metz Stars in Upcoming Faith-Based Film

Miracles still happen. That is the message of the faith-based film, Breakthrough starring This is Us’ Chrissy Metz. Based on Joyce Smith’s book, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother's Faith and Her Child's Resurrection, Breakthrough tells the true story of an event that happened just four years ago.

Metz plays Smith whose 14-year-old son falls through the ice of a Missouri lake. He was trapped under water for 15 minutes and even after he was rescued, he had no pulse for 43 minutes. All seemed lost and Smith was told to come in and say her goodbyes to her son as there was no hope for the boy. But Smith refused to give up and continued to pray for her son’s complete recovery, even in the face of every case history and scientific prediction. Not only did her son come back to life, but he is alive today telling his story.

Directed by Roxann Dawson and produced by DeVon Franklin (Miracles from Heaven), Breakthrough also stars Josh Lucas, Topher Grace, Mike Colter…

'Secrets And Lies': What's New This Season?

Secrets and Lies season premiere is September 25, 2016.

Secrets and Lies, the crime drama mystery show on ABC was originally conceived as a limited series during the summer of 2015. The first season starred Ryan Phillippe who played Ben Crawford, a man hounded by Juliette Lewis' Detective Andrea Cornell's icy stare every week as she tried to uncover who killed the young neighbor boy down the street with all roads leading to Crawford as the guilty party … only he didn't do it.

Secrets and Lies was a hit, but its story line ran out. ABC renewed the show for another year with Lewis being the only character to come back and the show. This season will focus on a whole new case and family for Cornelle to make miserable in the process. Cornell is the heart of the show despite the fact that Lewis' character is largely unlikeable. Secrets and lies was to appear again last summer, but ABC re-thought that decision and moved the show to a fall premiere instead.
