Hockey, Love and Superstitious Antics

This is the first of many more films that will support the 'Hollywood Vets' program under NFMFS,” said Rollins. "I am beyond appreciative to the National Hockey League and The Los Angeles Kings for their support.

The premiere date of the highly-anticipated “Hockey, Love and Superstitious Antics,” written and directed by Cody Stauber, is already generating buzz. The independent film, produced by Hazel House Films, in association with National Foundation for Military Family Support (NFMFS), is a unique romantic comedy starring Stephen Rollins, and will feature the film debut of talented, up-and-coming actress Lexi Yob.

The film will premiere Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. Eastern on ShortsTV, which is found on DIRECTV CH 573 and on other cable providers, such as AT&T U-verse CH 1789, Frontier CH 1789, US Sonet CH 292, Century Link CH 1789, Google Fiber CH 603.

“Hockey, Love and Superstitious Antics” follows the life of Mike, an overweight hockey fan suffering from low self-esteem, who has a penchant for superstition. A development in his life leaves him in urgent need of a suitable date to save face in front of his co-workers at a big charity event. His best friends try coming to his rescue and set him up on a series of dismal dates in a laugh-out-loud hunt for “Miss Right.”

The film stars Rollins who returns to his acting roots after working behind the scenes as a producer and director.

"I am proud that Hazel House Films could be a part of this film and to bring awareness to the NFMFS and their 'Hollywood Vets' program,” said Stauber.

“Hockey, Love and Superstitious Antics” will feature new music from “The Ries Brothers,” (Charlie and Kevin Ries) who are currently touring. The track “It’s Never Me” is featured in the opening credits.

“I am thrilled that the film is garnering so much attention. This is the first of many more films that will support the 'Hollywood Vets' program under NFMFS,” said Rollins. "I am beyond appreciative to the National Hockey League and The Los Angeles Kings for their support.”

The film also marks the first in a series of productions in coordination with the National Foundation for Military Family Support, a 501(c)(3) charity that supports military vets and families in need. The Foundation launched a program titled “Hollywood Vets” that partners Hollywood professionals with military vets looking for employment transferring to civilian life. Following their on job set training, vets who want to further pursue a career in the film industry will be provided paid film school.
