New movie ‘Redeemed’ will be released on DVD on September 9th. The film ‘Redeemed’ stars Ted McGinley. Karen Peck has a feature performance playing the part of Rose, the best friend of Beth, and is her rock when things are not going well in her marriage. She helps her to stay strong and fight for her marriage.

Pure Flix films stated, “Our hope with every film we produce is that it may challenge your faith and uplift the human spirit.”

Karen stated,” I can’t wait for everyone to see it!  Let me know what you think. We really need more films like this in the world.”

You can pre-order the DVD movie by calling Karen Peck’s office (706-864-2082), by email (newriver@windstream.net) or you can purchase it at selected Christian Bookstores.

It’s a redemptive story between a married couple with relatable pressing issues many marriages face today. It deals with a lot of the hard questions we sometimes don’t talk enough about that creep on us when we’re most vulnerable. How far is too far? Just what is adultery? We highly recommend this film for the newly to experienced married couples in our audience.

The Producer/Director, David A.R.White said of Karen Peck, “Working with Karen was such a pleasure, both personally and professionally. She may not have acted in many films, yet everyone could tell she was a consummate professional. Super natural and brought her southern charm to her acting. I loved working with Karen Peck. To me, she is America’s Sweetheart. Thank you Karen.”
