“If I Could Tell You,” Starring Backstreet Boys’ Kevin Richardson, Set to Premiere on Aug. 2

“If I Could Tell You,” a film drama directed by The Clyde Brothers and produced by Squint Pictures, will premiere in Los Angeles on Aug. 2.

The film stars Backstreet Boys member Kevin Richardson as an anonymous sperm donor as he navigates the struggles surrounding infertility and the online black market for sperm donors and fertility treatments.

"I am honored to work with my friends, the Clyde Brothers, and I hope that this film will provide hope to those on this journey, while exposing the raw feelings to those who have never dealt with infertility," Richardson said in a statement.

Jim O'Heir from “Parks & Recreation” and Sharon Lawrence of “Shameless” and “NYPD Blue” also star in the film.

The screening will take place at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles at 7:30 p.m. followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and cast. “If I Could Tell You” will also be released on iTunes the same day.
