Karen Kingsbury's "A Thousand Tomorrows" Turned into a Series
The bestselling Chrisitan novelist has teamed up with Pure Flix to bring this project to that outfit's streaming platform.
With nearly 30 million books sold, not only is Karen Kingsbury a force in the world of Christian fiction writing, but several of her novels have been turned into made-for-TV movies over the years, primarily by the Hallmark family of channels. This next endeavor, though - A Thousand Tomorrows - is the first of her books from her new production company.
The 59-year-old Virginia native's Karen Kingsbury Productions partnered with the faith and family-friendly Pure Flix for a six-episode series that will debut on the streaming platform later this month. A redemptive story of trust, forgiveness and love, it centers around a brash rodeo bull rider named Cody, who is running from his past, and a barrel racer named Ali, facing a serious illness.
Played by Rose Reid, she is guided by her Christian faith, which is something Cody gradually opens up to as their relationship blossoms. That character is portrayed by Christian actor Colin Ford, who says in a press release he can relate to Cody, because even though he himself grew up a Christian, he "didn't really practice (his) faith" until later in life.
Kingsbury, a devout Believer who is executive producer and co-writer of the series, calls it "absolutely amazing" to witness the novel "come to life on the screen." The mother of six, including three adopted children, was also quick to praise the Lord for the project.
"But what's more amazing is how God uses these stories to touch hearts and transform lives. He deserves all the glory for my writing and for my work reaching wider audiences by becoming shows or movies."
The first feature film from Kingsbury's production company - Someone Like You - is currently in post-production. Based on her 2020 novel by the same name, it stars Sarah Fisher and Jake Allyn and is tentatively set to release this fall.
As for A Thousand Tomorrows, you will not have to wait nearly that long to see it. Episodes one and two premiere on Pure Flix on February 24th; a new episode will roll out each Friday thereafter. The streaming platform is subscription-based, and you can find out more about that via this link to the Pure Flix website. The trailer for the series is below and will give you a good feel for what to expect.
