Tribeca Film in a partnership with Emerging Pictures will be bringing “Glee” star Chris Colfer’s film debut, the high school comedy Struck By Lightning, to theaters nationwide for a special interactive Q&A screening event on Sunday, January 6th. Cinemas across the country will host the film’s theatrical premiere the same time as its red-carpet launch in Los Angeles. All over the United States, audiences will have a chance to see the film in theaters before its January 11th theatrical release date. Chris will participate remotely from the LA premiere for a live and interactive webcast Q&A at the conclusion of the film. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions via Twitter.

High school senior Carson Phillips (Chris Colfer) was destined for bigger things than his close-minded small town could ever offer. He was on a path to greatness, but destiny had a different plan when he was suddenly killed by a bolt of lightning in his school parking lot.

Demonstrating that life is what happens while you’re busy planning your future, Carson recounts the last few weeks of his life via witty, insightful flashbacks, including a blackmail scheme targeting the popular kids in school that he concocts with his best friend (Rebel Wilson, Bridesmaids), and a home life that includes a mother (Allison Janney, Juno, “The West Wing”) who’s more interested in the bottle than her son’s future and an estranged father (Dermot Mulroney, My Best Friend’s Wedding) who suddenly appears with a pregnant fiancée (Christina Hendricks, “Mad Men”).

Struck By Lightning is a co-production between Permut Presentations and Camellia Entertainment in association with Inphenate and Evil Media Empire. It is produced by David Permut, Roberto Aguire and Mia Chang. Along with Colfer, the executive producers include Jason Michael Berman, Glenn Rigberg and Lawrence Kopeikin. Co-producers on the project are Monica Aguirre Diez Barroso, Steve Longi, and Mark Moran.
