A Message from God's Word
Genesis 2:18-24- "Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

Tricia Helfer, Paul Campbell, and Sadie Robertson to Star in New Hallmark Movie "Sun, Sand & Romance"

Hallmark Press Release:


Part of the Network’s Annual
“Summer Nights” Programming Event

“Duck Dynasty’s” Sadie Robertson Also Stars

STUDIO CITY, CA – June 15, 2017 – Production has begun on “Sun, Sand & Romance,” reuniting “Battlestar Galactica” castmates Tricia Helfer (“Lucifer,” “Suits”) and Paul Campbell (“Knightrider”). Shooting on location in Cancun, Mexico, the movie will premiere during Hallmark Channel’s annual “Summer Nights” programming event, featuring four new, original movie premieres celebrating the fun of the season. “Duck Dynasty’s” Sadie Robertson also stars.

Kate (Helfer), a driven accounting executive, heads to Cancun with her boyfriend Eric, an equally ambitious land development executive, for some much-needed rest and relaxation. But the getaway they agreed would be 90 percent romance and just 10 percent work becomes anything but that. Upon arrival, Eric learns a prominent real estate developer is a guest in their resort. Wanting to seize the opportunity for potential business, Eric chases this new venture and leaves Kate to her own devices time and again. Luckily, Shep (Campbell), the resort’s activities director, is an old friend of Kate’s from her camp counselor days and more than willing to help fill her solo hours with fun and adventure. As the old friends spend more time together and reconnect, Kate is reminded of dreams she used to have and finds herself wondering if it’s time to change course.

“We are thrilled to film in Cancun, Mexico. The location mixed with the talents of Tricia Helfer, Paul Campbell and Sadie Robertson will be a sunny combination our audience will love,” said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming and Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks.

“Sun, Sand & Romance” is a Crown Media Production. Stan Spry serves as executive producer. Anthony Fankhauser is co-executive producer. Mark Rosman directs. Writers are Jennifer Barrow & Rich Tabach and Gregg Rossen & Brian Sawyer.

Hallmark Channel is Crown Media Family Networks’ flagship 24-hour cable television network, distributed nationwide in high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) to 88 million homes. As the country’s leading destination for quality family entertainment, Hallmark Channel delivers on the 100-year legacy of the Hallmark brand. In addition to its signature new, original movies, the network features an ambitious lineup of other new, original content, including scripted primetime series, such as “Good Witch,” “When Calls the Heart” and “Chesapeake Shores”; annual specials including “Kitten Bowl” and “Hero Dog Awards”; and a daily, two-hour lifestyle show, “Home & Family.” Additionally, Hallmark Channel is the exclusive home to world premiere presentations of the acclaimed Hallmark Hall of Fame franchise. Dedicated to helping viewers celebrate life’s special moments, Hallmark Channel also offers annual holiday programming franchises, including “Countdown to Christmas,” “Countdown to Valentine’s Day,” “Summer Nights,” “Fall Harvest” and “Winterfest.” Rounding out the network’s diverse slate are some of television’s most beloved comedies and series, including “The Golden Girls,” “The Middle,” “Last Man Standing” and “Frasier.”

My *Quick* Take:

I'm ecstatic to see Paul Campbell return to make a new Hallmark movie! It's been too long since we have had his comedic genius grace our TV screens! Like many of you, I first took notice of Paul when he starred in "Window Wonderland" - and no matter the movie, his character always shines. I remember loving him just as much as Gridley in "Surprised by Love." So, it goes without saying that I cannot wait to see him in this new one!

Tricia Helfer was wonderful in last year's Hallmark Movies & Mysteries Christmas movie drama "Operation Christmas" and past Christmas movies "Mistletoe over Manhattan" and "Finding Christmas." I will look forward to seeing her as Paul's opposite in this romantic comedy!

Sadie Robertson is just as sweet as she can be! She's like the All-American girl with her Duck Dynasty roots... and grounded deeply in her faith. Sadie also starred alongside two popular Hallmark stars - Melissa Joan Hart and Jesse Metcalfe, in 'God's Not Dead 2.' I cannot wait to see her, as well, in this new Hallmark movie. I hope this will be the beginning to many more!!!

"Sun, Sand & Romance" sounds like the perfect title for a Hallmark Movie right in the midst of "Summer Nights!"
