Lyriq Bent to Star and Produce Independent Canadian Feature, 'Group Home'

Lock & Load Productions Inc., Timshel Pictures and Hideaway Pictures together with Eggplant Studios have announce that filming is underway on their independent Canadian feature, “Group Home.”

Lyriq Bent (“Book of Negroes,” “Rookie Blue”) is set to star alongside Daveed Louza (“The Seder,” “The Tuxedo”) with Bent also producing the feature.

“Group Home” tells the story of Pat (Louza) a single dad running a home for abused kids and teens in early 1980’s Toronto, while struggling to raise his own two sons. His co-worker, Winnie (Bent) is everything that Pat isn’t – charming, good looking, witty and a hit with the ladies. The two share a brotherly bond, highlighted by their mutual motivation to improve the lives of kids who never asked to end up on the doorstep of the Group Home.

The film also features the talents of Shauna MacDonald (“Hemlock Grove,” “Reign”), as well as an ensemble cast of rising child actors.

Filming on “Group Home” will take place in and around Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
