A little over a year ago, Scrubs star Zach Braff made international headlines when he turned to the world of Kickstarter to fund his latest film.

Stream the ‘Wish I Was Here’ Soundtrack

On July 18, Zach Braff’s followup to his directorial debut Garden State hits screens.

Filmmaker and former Scrubs star Zach Braff has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the making of his latest film, Wish I Was Here.
