Directed by Jeff Fisher (The Image of You), the film follows Ali (Bush), her husband Jeff (Johnson) and their brilliant, vivacious teenage daughter, Katie (Miller) — the absolute center of Ali’s world. When Tom Truby (Carmack) knocks at their door, life as they know it ends. 15 years ago, someone switched Ali and Tom’s babies at the hospital. And now Ali is facing the unthinkable: the daughter she brought home doesn’t belong to her.

An adaptation of the novel from bestselling UK author Adele Parks MBE, who has a multi-picture deal with MPCA, the film was scripted by Chris Sivertson (Monstrous, The Image of You). Produced by Krevoy, its executive producers are Amanda Phillips, Vince Balzano, Garrett VanDusen, Kaan Karahan, Andrew Riach, David Wulf and Jennifer Ricci.

Most recently wrapping production on Bryan Greenberg’s directorial debut, Junction, Bush is also coming off of 2:22 – A Ghost Story, a play on London’s West End. Notable past credits in film and TV include the hit comedy John Tucker Must Die, Chicago P.D., Incredibles 2, One Tree Hill and Good Sam.

Best known for his starring role as country crooner Will Lexington on the CMT drama Nashville, Carmack currently stars as Dr. Lincoln on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. Previously, he’s also guest starred on popular procedurals and dramas such as NCIS, CSI: NY, Desperate Housewives, Smallville, The O.C. and CSI: Miami.

Premiering the rom-com Mother of the Bride, starring Brooke Shields, Benjamin Bratt and Miranda Cosgrove, on Netflix on May 9, MPCA earlier this year saw success with Irish Wish, starring Lindsay Lohan and Ed Speleers, which debuted at #1 at 69 countries in its first weekend on the same streamer. Later this year, the company will release two films through Republic Pictures: the rom-com Winter Spring Summer or Fall, starring Jenna Ortega, and The Image of You, starring Sasha Pieterse, Parker Young, Nestor Carbonell and Mira Sorvino.

Bush is repped by CAA and Untitled Entertainment; Carmack by Innovative Artists and Underscore Talent; Johnson by TalentWorks and Haven Entertainment; Miller by CAA, Rogue Management & Production, Entertainment 360, and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman; Fisher by Gersh and BenunLaw; Sivertson by Aperture Entertainment and Sloss Eckhouse Dasti Haynes; and Parks by CAA and Curtis Brown Group.
