The faith-based television show “Grace in High Heels” has been honored with an IndieFEST Film Award of Recognition in the Television show/series category. The show is hosted by #1 Amazon best-selling author and speaker Shannon Perry who also serves as producer for the series. In winning an IndieFEST Film Award, “Grace in High Heels ” joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this award including Liam Neeson as the narrator of “Love Thy Nature,” “A Path Appears” documentary featuring George Clooney and Blake Lively, and “Touched with Fire” starring Katie Holmes. Perry says the newest season of the show has been the most challenging and rewarding.
"These shows are designed to make people stop and watch who may not be looking for a faith-based show but end up hearing the Gospel through the incredible stories shared by our guests.”
“We wanted to try something new in faith-based programming,” says Perry. “The episodes we released this year are specifically formatted to compete with popular talk shows that air on mainstream networks. We have segments of cooking, decorating, health and fitness while interviewing award-winning comedians, singers, and faith-based leaders. These shows are designed to make people stop and watch who may not be looking for a faith-based show but end up hearing the Gospel through the incredible stories shared by our guests.”
