‘Queen of Kentucky’ Movie in the Works With David Permut

29 July 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

David Permut’s Permut Presentations and Unbridled Films are developing a movie version of “The Queen of Kentucky,” based on Alecia Whitaker’s young adult novel.

Katie Ford, writer of Sandra Bullock’s “Miss Congeniality” and co-creator of NBC’s new sitcom “Working the Engles,” will adapt the novel. Permut will produce with Unbridled Film’s Merry-Kay Poe and Permut Presentation’s Chris Mangano exec producing.

Ford and Permut previously teamed on the Lifetime TV movie “Prayers for Bobby.”

“The Queen of Kentucky,” published in 2012, centers on a 14-year-old from a family farm in Kentucky who moves from her small rural school to the public high school, where she trades in her blue jeans for “sophisticated” clothes and changes her name from Ricki Jo to Ericka — and begins to forget who she truly is.

Permut recently sold the domestic rights to IFC of “Match,” starring Patrick Stewart, and is in »

Ryan Kelley On His Journey From “Prayers For Bobby” to “Teen Wolf”

23 June 2014 10:44 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

While Ryan Kelley made a strong first impression when he starred alongside Sigourney Weaver as the suicidal Bobby Griffith in the heartbreaking TV movie Prayers For Bobby, he stirred us up in an entirely different way from his first appearance last season on MTV’s werewolf drama, Teen Wolf.

And for those of you who said last year that you wanted to see more of Kelley’s Deputy Parrish, the fourth season, which kicks off tonight, is going to deliver just that. Not only is Parrish going to be more involved with the adventures of Scott (Tyler Posey), Stiles (Dylan O’Brien), Derek (Tyler Hoechlin), Lydia (Holland Roden) and new series regulars Kira (Arden Cho) and Malia (Shelley Hennig), but the young Deputy may also find himself with a love interest of his own.

Kelley’s road to Teen Wolf is a long one, as he’ll tell us, but out series creator Jeff Davis, »

“Teen Wolf” Needs to Get That New Deputy Out of Uniform!

3 March 2014 9:20 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Ryan Kelley first drew our attention as the son in Prayers for Bobby.  Now he’s on MTV’s Teen Wolf as Deputy Parrish. As we all know, Beacon Hills law enforcement (other than Sheriff Stilinski) has a way of winding up dead so here’s a silent prayer to the powers that be that the good deputy sticks around for awhile. And that they get him out of his uniform tout suite, because Kelley has been seriously working out these days– no doubt to keep pace with the rest of the hunky Teen Wolf cast.

Judging by this brand new photo of the actor he more than holds his own with the other guys on the show!

Can’t wait to see more photos from this shoot!

"Bobby" Shows That Lifetime Has A Prayer After All

6 January 2014 4:22 PM, PST | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Prayers for Bobby is based on the true story of Mary Griffith (Sigourney Weaver), a conservative Christian mother whose son Bobby (Ryan Kelley) comes out as a homosexual in his teen years. For years, she tries to change her son's sexuality by praying for him, sending him to gay conversion support groups, and laying immense guilt on him for his sins. After a tragic event, however, Mary is forced to reevaluate her beliefs and how she has treated her son over the years, and she becomes a public advocate for Lgbt rights.
