Atlanta, GA (December 21, 2010) - gmc, America’s favorite channel for uplifting music and family entertainment, will premiere What If..., a gmc World Premiere Movie on Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 7 p.m. ET. The movie will encore at 9 p.m. ET and 11 p.m. ET.

Ben Walker (Kevin Sorbo) is a ruthless financial executive, fast-talking by day and living the fast-lane by night. His 24/7 routine of abrasive deal-closing and unabashed lavishness comes to a screeching halt when his brand new Mercedes mysteriously breaks down and he finds himself on “the road not traveled.” Before he gives up hope of making his flight to Paris to celebrate his recent promotion to partner, the tow truck arrives just in time, but driver Mike (John Ratzenberger), has different plans for Ben. Thrust into the life of the path not taken, Ben finds himself in the middle of domestic chaos while wife Wendy (Kristy Swanson), the girlfriend he abandoned 15 years earlier, and daughters are getting ready for church, where Ben is the new pastor. He is forced to learn the value of faith and family and is left wondering if he will ever return to his other life - or if he even wants to.
