The Houston Premiere of Deadline, the new movie starring Steve Talley and Academy Award nominee Eric Roberts, is Friday, March 2nd. Hosted by The Houston Chronicle, the premiere will benefit Child Advocates, Inc.


“The Houston Chronicle is proud to partner with Child Advocates, Inc., the beneficiary of the Houston premiere of the movie Deadline.  Inspired by a true story, the movie deals with a newspaper investigation into an unsolved murder of a black teenager,” said Jack Sweeney, Houston Chronicle Chairman. “Child Advocates, Inc. plays out a similar story every day in Houston by mobilizing court appointed volunteers to speak up for abused children.” The red carpet arrivals begin at 6:00 with the Deadline premiere at 7:00. A Q&A with cast members and the Charlotte reporter who lived and wrote the story Mark Ethridge will follow the premiere.


Child Advocates, Inc. mobilizes court appointed volunteers to break the vicious cycle of child abuse. We speak up for abused children who are lost in the system and guide them into safe environments where they can thrive.

“In an ideal world, stories like these wouldn’t have to be told. But the reality is we live in a world where injustices occur and children are abused by the people who are supposed to love and protect them,” Child Advocates, Inc. CEO Sonya Galvan said. “By partnering with the Houston Chronicle in the premier of Deadline, we are hoping to raise more awareness about our mission to break the cycle of child abuse in our community.”

Inspired by a true story, Deadline is a powerful movie that viewers most often say reminds them of To Kill a Mockingbird.
" Deadline is a powerful movie with a very strong Christian, redemptive worldview about the search for truth and justice...Matt and Bullock’s adventures in solving this case take them into the communities, homes and hearts of both whites and blacks." - Renee Green, Movie Guide
Deadline is an important, terrific movie, with the kind of compelling story and fascinating characters that made The Help so engaging. Beautifully acted and directed.” - Dr. Linda Seger, Script Consultant on over 2,000 scripts and author of Making a Good Script Great
