LOS ANGELES, CA – Feb 10, 2021 – The uplifting, new film WALKING WITH HERB takes audiences on an 18-hole rollercoaster ride as one man discovers how the impossible can become possible through faith, family and second chances . . . and with the help of God’s motorcycle-riding messenger!
WALKING WITH HERB features global star Edward James Olmos and comedy legend George Lopez.
“It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had working on a film,” said Olmos, who plays the lead character, and is an executive producer. “An amazing script and an excellent cast combine for a heart-warming, funny story about golf, belief and second chances.”
In addition to Olmos (Academy Award® nominee, Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner, Battlestar Galactica, STAND AND DELIVER) and Lopez (George Lopez show), WALKING WITH HERB stars Kathleen Quinlan (Academy Award® nominee, APOLLO 13).
Joe Amable-Amo is a bank executive and former amateur golfer struggling with his faith after an unexpected tragedy. Faced with doubts about himself, his purpose and his belief in God, Joe is stunned when God tells him that he’s been chosen to inspire the world and play in a world championship golf tournament. Guided by God’s eccentric personal messenger, Herb, Joe learns that the seemingly impossible is possible…through faith, family and second chances.
WALKING WITH HERB premieres April 30, May 1, and May 3 for a three-night nationwide Fathom Events limited engagement. Find tickets at FathomEvents.com or WalkingWithHerbMovie.com.
