#1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury is one of America’s favorite inspirational storytellers, with more than twenty-five million copies of her award-winning books in print. A dozen have topped bestseller lists, many of which have been developed as major motion pictures. Her latest, Someone Like You, is one of them—but this time, Karen and her husband Donald, used their savings to make the film all on their own without the help of studios or investors.   

Shot last year in her home state of Tennessee, as well as Alabama, Someone Like You was co-written by Kingsbury and Tyler Russell (A Thousand Tomorrows), who makes his feature directorial debut. Kingsbury and Russell also produced the film, alongside Natalie Ruffino Wilson (Best Laid Plans) and Trevor K. Ball (This is 20).

The film stars Sarah Fisher who plays the two lead roles (Degrassi: The Next Generation, Kiss and Cry), Jake Allyn (No Man's Land, The Quad), Robyn Lively (Teen Witch, The Karate Kid Part III), Bart Johnson (High School Musical I, II, III), Scott Reeves (Nashville, The Young and the Restless), and Lynn Collins (The Walking Dead, X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

The film explores the timely topic of embryo adoption, a subject close to Karen's heart, as her One Chance Foundation has given several grants to embryo adoption. A portion of proceeds from Someone Like You will benefit the organization. Actor Taylor Lautner and his wife Tay Lautner are marketing partners with the film. A portion of proceeds will also benefit their The Lemons Foundation, which encourages and advocates for those struggling with mental health and provides accessible resources and support.
