In preparation for the September 5 release of the film, The Identical (starring Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd), City of Peace and its co-producers will launch a series of television specials called “The Identity.” Each half-hour episode that airs during the month of August will feature a prominent Christian leader speaking about a key aspect of what it means to follow God’s call on your life.
Included in the line-up are authors Max Lucado, Lee Strobel, Lisa Harper, and Holly Wagner, as well as Craig Groeschel (Lifechurch.tv), Raleigh Washington (President of Promise Keepers), Reverend Samuel Rodriguez (President of the national Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference), Christine Caine (Australian pastor and activist), and pastors from some of the top churches in Durham, Baltimore, Las Vegas, San Diego, Birmingham, and Corpus Christi.
Since the feature film is not overt in its Christian messaging, the television series will illuminate the underlying heart of the film. Yochanan Marcellino, president and CEO of City of Peace Films, says, “It [the film] was always imagined to be a movie both for the masses and for Christians…Our ‘Identity Series’ brings relevancy to the modern churchgoer by elevating the movie's core truth, that Jesus Christ alone can answer the question we all ask ourselves: Who am I and what am I here for?”
“The Identity” series will air Aug. 1-Sept. 5 on both secular and Christian television networks, including ABC Family, CMT, Lifetime, Discovery Channel, TBN, Daystar, The Word Network, INSP and TCT.
