Former Sen. Rick Santorum has a new gig as chief executive at a faith-based film company.

According to Dallas-based EchoLight Studios, the former GOP presidential candidate will be the new CEO of “the first movie company to produce, finance, market and distribute faith-based, family films across all releasing platforms.”

Mr. Santorum announced the venture on Fox News’ “The Huckabee Show” on Saturday.

“This is the right place and right time, and I’ve jumped in with both feet,” he said. “I often say that culture is upstream from politics, and I know entertainment also can be strength and light for people who want to be uplifted and reinforced in their values. Dallas can become the Hollywood of the faith-and-family movie market. And the keys are great content and economic success … using money from all over to build out the industry and distribute an authentic product truthful to the faith in people’s lives.”

EchoLight’s upcoming first theatrical, “The Redemption of Henry Myers,” is slated for release in the fall, the company said.
