Tubi Lands Supernatural Thriller Bed Rest


Tubi has acquired the exclusive U.S. streaming rights to the STXfilms and Project X Entertainment supernatural thriller Bed Rest.

The film, written and directed by Lori Evans Taylor (Final Destination 6), centers on Julie Rivers, a young woman who finds herself pregnant again after years of struggling to start a family. She and her husband move into a new home for a fresh start, but Julie slowly starts to unravel after being ordered to mandatory bed rest. Ghostly experiences begin to close in on her, stirring up her past demons and causing others to question her sanity.

Melissa Barrera (In the Heights, Scream) stars in the lead role.

Bed Rest is produced by William Sherak, James Vanderbilt and Paul Neinstein through their Project X Entertainment banner, along with Evans Taylor and Barrera, in what is her first feature-film producer role. Financing for the film was provided by Bondit Media.

“We’re very excited to be the exclusive home for this gripping psychological thriller that has you wondering until the very end if what we see is to be believed,” said Adam Lewinson, chief content officer at Tubi. “Melissa is absolutely captivating in Bed Rest, and we can’t wait for audiences to see her incredible portrayal of this isolated character working through her grief while facing frightening supernatural elements.”

“As a first-time producer, it is my profound pleasure to be partnering with Tubi to bring Bed Rest to a savvy and engaged audience,” Barrera said. “While on the surface, Bed Rest is a horror film, it is a story that will resonate deeply with anyone who’s experienced grief and been haunted by loss. Lori Evans Taylor has created a deeply emotional journey for audiences, and I’m grateful to my partners at Project X and STX for bringing us together to share this story with the world.”

“Tubi has been an excellent partner, and we are excited to be collaborating once again on a new, original movie that will leave their viewers who are looking for creeps and supernatural twists and scares truly satisfied,” said David Spiegelman, president of domestic TV and digital distribution for STXfilms.

“We knew Melissa was the perfect choice to headline this film with her natural talent and work ethic,” said Project X Entertainment. “Having the pleasure of working with Melissa on two Scream films, she’s showcased her interest in all facets of filmmaking and proved to be an unbelievable producing partner, as well as a welcome part to the PXE family. We’re excited that all of us could come together to tell this thrilling story that Lori Evans Taylor created in her directorial debut.”
