‘3 DAY TEST’—A FAMILY COMEDY FROM CORBIN BERNSEN—DEBUTS NOV. 6
Fun Film Entertains, Encourages and Exhorts
DALLAS – Oct. 12, 2012 – From actor and filmmaker Corbin Bernsen comes a comedy for the whole family—3 DAY TEST, where a frustrated father attempts to reconnect with his wife and kids . . . by disconnecting them from the world. Distributed by EchoLight Studios, DVD sales of 3 DAY TEST launch Nov. 6.
“Humor offers a wonderful tool to communicate truth and entertain audiences as you do it,” said Bernsen, an Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actor now also writing, producing and directing films. “3 DAY TEST features talented comedic actors in a zany plot, but at its heart it tells a story of how one family reconnects.”
Think of HOME ALONE meets Survivor. Martin Taylor has totally lost touch with his family. He has no clue who his teenage daughter’s friends are, why his son only communicates with an electronic sign outside his bedroom door, or why his youngest child only watches faith TV. Convinced the family needs to reconnect, Martin surprises the wife and kids with a little experiment—he locks them in their own home with no power, no heat, no running water and absolutely no contact with the world outside! The sudden holiday staycation isn’t what the Taylors had in mind for the weekend, but they’ll have to team up to prove they can survive Dad’s wacky mission. With a heartfelt message and some persistence, one little member of the family helps put their priorities back in the pews, because they’ll need all the faith they have to get through this!
3 DAY TEST stars George Newbern, known to audiences for film roles including FATHER OF THE BRIDE and from TV’s mega-hit, Friends. Also featured are Bernsen (Psyche, L.A. Law) Megyn Price (Rules of Engagement), up-and-coming young actress Taylor Spreitler (Melissa & Joey, Days of Our Lives) and Francesca Capaldi, featured in the new Disney Channel series Dog With a Blog.
Bernsen has carved an interesting niche in filmmaking, often uniting communities around a project as he did in the Akron, Ohio, area with 25 HILL, which centered on the All-American Soap Derby based in that city. And the experience was so positive, he returned to Akron to film 3 DAY TEST.
"Corbin Bernsen brings communities together in support of original films that deliver entertainment and meaning to audiences,” said EchoLight Chief Global Strategist Christopher Morrow said. “We’re proud to be associated with this talented, innovative filmmaker.”
Home Theater Films produced 3 DAY TEST from Bernsen’s original script, with distribution by EchoLight Studios. DVDs can be pre-ordered now with deliveries and immediate sales starting Nov. 6. 3 DAY TEST is available through leading online and retail providers.
