River Valley Film Society Press Release


Premiere Watch Party – Brad Neely’s The Harper House


The River Valley Film Society is excited to host a watch party at the UAFS Windgate Art and Design theater (5210 Kinkead Ave), for Fort Smith native, Brad Neely’s newest show, The Harper House, which is premiering on Paramount+. 


THE HARPER HOUSE follows an overconfident female head of a household as she struggles to regain a higher status for herself and for her family of oddballs after losing her job and moving from the rich side to the poor side of a small town in Arkansas. To save money, they’ve moved into their inherited Victorian fixer-upper, the historic Harper House.

Free and open to the public, the evening will begin with a prerecorded interview featuring Brad Neely and Entertainment Fort Smith’s Lynn Wasson along with Clay Pruitt and Dr. Brandon Chase Goldsmith with the Fort Smith International Film Festival.


“We had a delightful conversation from his laundry room. Brad opens up about his formative years in Fort Smith and gives advice to up and coming artists. It is

wonderful getting to hear about his creative journey from our town to the screen,” explains Dr. Goldsmith.


Neely is the creator of TV’s China, IL; and Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio; as well as internet favorites Wizard People, Dear Readers; Creased Comics;  Washington;  Queeblo; I Am Baby Cakes; and The Professor Brothers.


After the interview the first two episodes of The Harper House will be screened. The watch party will be following University of Arkansas – Fort Smith COVID protocols.
