Fox Nation’s First Original Film Debuts Sept. 1

By Mark Mwachiro 

Fox News Media’s direct-to-consumer streaming service Fox Nation is dipping its toes into movie production with the release of its first original film, The Shell Collector, on September 1.

The feature film is based on the best-selling title by author Nancy Naigle and stars Caitlin Clark, Christopher Russell, and Jennifer Higgin. The movie follows the story of a widow—Amanda Whittier—and her two children, who befriend some interesting characters in her small seaside town, as she looks to forge ahead with her new life following the death of her husband. 

In announcing the streamer’s entry into original films, John Finley, Executive Vice President of Development, said, “Since launching less than four years ago, FOX Nation has established itself as a go-to destination for lifestyle and entertainment programming. I’m thrilled to share our expansion into film production, and Nancy Naigle’s The Shell Collector is the perfect fit for our first title.”


The Shell Collector is the first of four original films produced by Fox Nation that will be released over the next year.

The next original film release will be tied to the holiday season.
