“Hunger in America” by Zac Adams – Do Some Good

HollywoodNews.com: “Desperate Housewives” star James Denton and production companies Skydive Films and Casting Life Films have teamed up to produce a powerful new documentary tackling the hunger issue in America.

“When I think about hunger, I think about kids in third world countries, not adults and children here in America. When you hear the stats, they are staggering,” says Zac Adams who is serving as the film’s writer, director, and producer. My goal with this film is to educate and raise awareness. We hope to motivate people to get out there and do something about this growing epidemic.”

“It’s an issue that definitely needs to be talked about,” says Denton, who is serving as the film’s narrator and is best known for playing Mike Delfino on ABC’s hit show, “Desperate Housewives.”

“I am passionate about the issue of Hunger in America because in a country with so much excess, food should not be considered a luxury,” says co-producer Mindy Lawrence.

Mike Stryker, who is serving as the film’s cinematographer and editor, states that, “A third world exists here in America, a world that most Americans have never seen.”

The film has already begun shooting and will continue filming across the United States until summer 2012.

Director Zac Adams’ most recent film, “Nashville Rises,” an Emmy-nominated documentary narrated by Oscar winner Billy Bob Thornton, tells the story of how the city responded to the worst natural flood disaster in Tennessee history.

“With ‘Nashville Rises,’ we hoped to inspire people of how a community came together and a city rose up. In ‘Hunger in America,’ our mission is to make a positive impact by screening this film on TV, film festivals, and the Internet. Funds made on this film will go back into the communities where people need it the most.”

“Hunger in America” will be released in the fall of 2012. It’s co-produced by Randy Ryder, Joel Hahn, Mark Slaughter, Mike Stryker, Jeffrey Chase, and Camron Carrier, all of whom worked on “Nashville Rises.”
