On the heels of the very successful film Fireproof comes the groundbreaking documentary Hollywood on Fire. Filled with honest openness, the film reveals the successes and failures of many of today's, and yesterday's, top actors, directors, producers, music artists, executives and media based ministries who are all faith driven. Hollywood on Fire presents a different view on how Christians in the entertainment industry encounter secularist and Hollywood skeptics, yet do not compromise their faith. Criticized, yet making progress, Hollywood on Fire shows that some of the most influential in Hollywood are Christians.
One of Hollywood's faithful, actress-comedian Kerri Pomarolli, has a unique ability to make people laugh with an artistic quality that is undisputable. As is with her adherence to her Christian faith, Pomarolli's desire to not just co-exist in the entertainment industry as one of "those people" has pushed her harder to reach crossover audiences. Whether it is tolerance or acceptance, she is thrilled with the new and increasing interest Hollywood networks and studios are taking in Faith based and Family Friendly content.
Along with Jane Russell, Pat Boone, Chuck Norris, Eric Close, Natalie Grant and many others, Pomarolli and husband Ron McGehee participant in the documentary as they discuss the importance of faith in making career decisions and how being a Christian is not always popular with casting agents and producers, studios and networks. Christians in Hollywood are rallying and becoming the biggest voices in making good movies with moral lessons.
"I'm honored to be part of such an impact project. It gave me chills to sit and watch Jane Russell and other Christian forerunners in Hollywood share their stories of how God was always in this crazy and difficult town!" - Kerri Pomarolli
