Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is an All-Pro selection, a nine-time Pro-Bowler, and a three-time Super Bowl champion. Add ‘movie producer’ to that list of accolades.  Kelce was revealed to be an executive producer of a new dark comedy drama My Dead Friend Zoe, which stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Natalie Morales, Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman, Utkarsh Ambudkar and Gloria Reuben.

The film was premiered over the weekend at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas – but Kelce was not there to watch it.  Instead, he was half-way across the world – watching girlfriend Taylor Swift playing one of her six dates on her Eras Tour in Singapore.  Cameras captured Travis standing in a suit watching his significant other perform and was later seen walking out of the arena with her and at a restaurant when the concert ended.

As for the movie in Austin, Kelce’s executive-produced effort is directed by military veteran and Bronze Star recipient Kyle Hausman-Stokes.  ‘It was incredibly surreal to get that news,’ Hausmann-Stokes said of Kelce’s executive producing the project.  ‘Travis is supportive of the military and veterans, and when this project came across his team and his desk and they decided to do it in a big part for that reason.

‘It was just really heartwarming and touching, and the amount of added limelight and energy that he’s brought to the project is just going to help it reach a broader audience.’  The synopsis for the film from SXSW reads as follows: ‘My Dead Friend Zoe is a dark comedy drama that follows the journey of Merit, a U.S. Army Afghanistan veteran who is at odds with her family thanks to the presence of Zoe, her dead best friend from the Army.

‘Despite the persistence of her VA group counselor, the tough love of her mother and the levity of an unexpected love interest, Merit’s cozy-dysfunctional friendship with Zoe keeps the duo insulated from the world. That is until Merit’s estranged grandfather—holed up at the family’s ancestral lake house—begins to lose his way and is need of the one thing he refuses… help.

‘At its core, this is about a complicated friendship, a divided family and the complex ways in which we process grief.’  The movie does not yet have a distributor and does not have a date set for a wider release.
