Jeff Bridges was the driving force behind making Hidden in America happen. Through his commitment to the End Hunger Network, he produced this film for Showtime in association with Hallmark Entertainment.

Jeff Bridges founded the End Hunger network along with other leaders in the entertainment industry in 1984. He frankly explains, "If we discovered that another country was doing this to our children, we would declare war."

Jeff"s brother Beau Bridges plays Bill Januson, a father who's life falls apart. He finds himself desparately struggling to feed his two children, Willa (Jenna Malone), 9 and Robbie (Shelton Dane), 11.
