Emmy Award®-winning actor Michael Imperioli and Academy Award®-winning actress Ellen Burstyn star in the two-hour television event motion picture Oprah Winfrey Presents: Mitch Albom's For One More Day, premiering December 9, 2007, at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. The production, which is based on Mitch Albom's best-selling book For One More Day, was shot primarily on location in Connecticut.
In the film, Michael Imperioli plays Chick Benetto, a broken-down former baseball player who has collapsed into alcoholism and despair. He returns one night to his small hometown with plans to take his life. At the final moment, he is magically granted one more day with his departed mother, Posey Benetto, played by Ellen Burstyn. Posey illuminates the secrets of both their lives and shows Chick a way to redemption.
Samantha Mathis and Scott Cohen also star. Michael Imperioli's son, Vadim Imperioli, plays the role of the younger Chick in his acting debut.
