UPtv, the destination for uplifting entertainment, announced that the box-office hit film I Can Only Imagine will make its U.S. cable premiere on the network.
Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffered physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart’s troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the hit song “I Can Only Imagine” as singer of the Christian band MercyMe. The movie stars J Michael Finley, Madeline Carroll, Dennis Quaid, Trace Adkins, Cloris Leachman and Jason Burkey.
UPtv will debut the film Saturday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET and Sunday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m. ET.
