In recognition of Easter, TV One will premiere two all-new programs reflecting the spirit of the season, including, on Saturday, April 4, 8PM/ET, a new TV One original movie titled “To Hell and Back,” which stars Ernie Hudson and Vanessa Bell Calloway.
Directed by Christine Swanson (“All About You,” “All About Us”), and based on the Book of Job, “To Hell and Back” tells the story of Joe Patterson (Hudson), a successful businessman, loving father and humanitarian who has been blessed with every good fortune. Despite living a life of great faith, he is tormented by Satan and made to suffer terribly. In rapid succession, catastrophic events devastate the lives of Joe, wife Janine (Bell Calloway) and children, as the family encounters deaths, deterioration of physical wellbeing and a downward spiral of the prosperity they have worked tirelessly to attain. But even in his darkest hour, Joe refuses to curse God and remains steadfast in his faith.
“To Hell And Back” is produced by Eric Tomosunas of Swirl Films. Lamar Chase is producer for TV One. Executive In Charge of Production and Programming is Tia A. Smith. D’Angela Proctor serves as Executive Producer for the network.
