Here! Films, the theatrical distribution and worldwide sales division of here! Networks, has acquired North American distribution rights to Tru Loved, a drama focusing on LGBTQ youth and their families.

The film is scheduled for a fall release, though the date is still to be determined.

"Tru Loved falls squarely into our company mission by offering us an opportunity to showcase emerging talent, while providing entertainment that fosters change and creates understanding around important real-life issues facing LGBTQ youth and their families," said Mark Reinhart, West Coast general manager and executive vice president of distribution and acquisitions for here! parent company Regent, in a press release.

The film was written and directed by Stewart Wade (Coffee Date) and tells the story of Tru, a 16-year-old uprooted by her lesbian moms from her gay-friendly home in San Francisco and moved to a conservative community in Southern California.

Tru Loved stars Najarra Townsend (Me and You and Everyone We Know), Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty), Bruce Vilanch (Hairspray), Nichelle Nichols (Heroes), Jasmine Guy (A Different World). Alexandra Paul (Baywatch), Cynda Williams (Tales of the City), Jake Abel (the 2009 film The Lovely Bones), Matthew Thompson (Drake and Josh), and Jane Lynch (The 40-Year-Old Virgin). (The Advocate)
