Based on the award-winning novel of the same name, THE IRON ORCHARD is the story of Jim McNeely, a young man thrust into the vibrant and brutal West Texas oilfields in 1939, who works his way through the ranks to ultimately become a formidable oilman.

THE IRON ORCHARD stars Lewisville native, Lane Garrison, known for his previous work on “Prison Break” and “Roots.” Hassie Harrison, with generations of family ties in Dallas, also stars in the film, alongside Austin Nichols (The CW’s “In the Dark”), Ali Cobrin (LightWork’s “Redemption”) and Lew Temple (“Kidnap”).

The film was produced by Houston Hill, George Sledge and Camille S. Chambers.
