Set Sail! Hallmark Announces FIVE 2018 "Summer Nights" Destination Movies with Lacey Chabert, Cameron Mathison, Alexa and Carlos PenaVega, Jill Wagner, Marc Blucas, and More!!!


Hallmark Press Release:

HALLMARK CHANNEL HELPS VIEWERS
TRAVEL THE WORLD WITH

FIVE ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERES

PART OF ‘SUMMER NIGHTS’
PROGRAMMING EVENT

WEEKLY DEPARTURES BEGIN
EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT
STARTING JULY 28

A Summer to Remember - Hallmark Crown Media

Sultry South African Vistas, Caribbean Ports O’ Call,

South Pacific Beaches and
Home Sweet Home Await Viewers

This summer, Hallmark Channel takes viewers on an exciting trip around the world with its annual Summer Nights programming event celebrating the sun-drenched days of leisure and love. Viewers with wanderlust will be able to travel to exotic locations including South Africa, the Caribbean and the South Pacific beaches of Fiji from the comfort of their own homes.

First stop on the world tour is South Africa, the setting for “Love on Safari,” premiering Saturday, July 28, (9:00 p.m. ET/PT). Shot on location in Johannesburg, Lacey Chabert (“Party of Five,” “Moonlight in Vermont”) stars as a web designer who finds plans for her trip to Scottsdale derailed when she learns she’s inherited an animal reserve in South Africa and must travel there for the reading of the will. Faced with the decision to sell, she meets the no-nonsense ranger played by Jon Cor (“Lost in Space”), who takes her on a safari in hopes that she will fall in love with the land, the animals and hopefully him. Viewers will be captivated by the breathtaking Sub-Saharan scenery of the reserve featuring tranquil grasslands and populated with majestic wildlife including zebras, elephants, lions, giraffes and more.

Next, an exciting voyage is in store for viewers with “Love at Sea,” premiering Saturday, August 4 (9:00 p.m. ET/PT). Real-life husband and wife Alexa PenaVega (Spy Kids) and Carlos PenaVega (“Big Time Rush”) head out on the high seas aboard Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas as it cruises to exciting ports o’ call including Jamaica, Nassau, St. Thomas and Cozumel. Alexa stars as an event planner organizing a multifaceted event on board the ship and thinks she has everything set to the last detail…until she learns she’ll be dealing with the rookie, substitute cruise director, portrayed by Carlos, who has his own way of doing things that puts a wrench in her carefully thought out plans.

For viewers who dream of vacationing on the beaches of a tropical island, a trip to the South Pacific is next on the itinerary with two original movies. “A Summer to Remember” stars Catherine Bell (“JAG,” “Army Wives”) and Cameron Mathison (“All My Children,” “Entertainment Tonight”) and premieres Saturday, August 11 (9 p.m. ET/PT). Shot on location in Fiji, Bell stars as an ER doctor who retreats to the island with her teen daughter so they can reconnect and hopes to recapture the tranquility she found there years ago with her late husband. During the trip, hiking through picturesque jungles, paddle boarding, horseback riding – and possibly love – are on the agenda.

Also jetting off to Fiji are Jill Wagner (“Wipeout”) and Kristoffer Polaha (“Ballers,” “Get Shorty”) for “Pearl in Paradise” (working title) premiering Saturday, August 18 (9 p.m. ET/PT). Wagner stars as a photographer for a nature magazine who hopes to become its new creative director but first, she must come up with a winning angle for the cover of their 30th anniversary issue. She enlists the help of a romance novelist (Polaha), who she’s convinced will help her locate a rare blue pearl buried somewhere on Fiji that was the subject of one of his bestselling books. Their adventure leads them from the comfort of a luxurious resort through the rugged yet lush jungles of the island, punctuated by cool streams and awe-inspiring waterfalls.

Another destination this summer is home sweet home in "Season for Love" (previously known as: “A Sweet Taste of Love”)(working title) premiering Saturday, August 25 (9 p.m. ET/PT). After her divorce, Tyler returns to her hometown to spend the summer with her daughter and mother. Her mother owns and operates a local, once-popular BBQ restaurant. At her daughter’s urging, Tyler (Autumn Reeser) signs up for the town’s famous, annual BBQ competition, where she soon realizes her high-school sweetheart (Marc Blucas, “Underground,” “Miss Christmas”), now a celebrity chef, is back in town and part of the contest. As the two are forced to spend time together, old feelings resurface but Tyler convinces herself she has no room for distractions, especially when there is a competition to win.

Hallmark Channel has your travel plans booked for summer 2018, without the need to worry about packing or booking a flight. Viewers just need to sit back, relax and spend Saturday nights with all-new, original movie premieres.

  3. Wow, there are so many movies they aren't mentioning that are filming or filmed like Wedding Of Dreams and Love Under The Rainbow (or something like that).

  4. It's funny cause I just did a survey for Hallmark and it asked if I would watch the barbecue movie. I said yes and wondered if that would be for summer nights.

  6. And the survey asked what I would name the barbecue movie and I said Love at the Barbecue, so maybe they will use a title one of the surveys gave :)

  7. Wonder who Marc Blucas's co-star is? I'm available, if Hallmark needs me!!!!!!!

  8. Oh, we can all get in line if Hallmark needs someone to costar with Marc Blucas, all the woman here would be glad to be his costar :) I watched First Daughter recently and Marc was so much younger in that movie and good to look at, but I think he looks much hotter now :)

    1. Okay, now I see the real reason why Miss Christmas was such a favorite Christmas movie last year for so many! (ha-ha, wink wink!)

  9. I am really wondering where Wedding of Dreams will fit in, as the commercial they played during Summer of Dreams this weekend, they said this summer. so either it will be the in between movies, or I would love it to be a fall harvest or Christmas wedding :) Technically it is still summer in September so maybe it will be between summer nights and fall harvest. Or could they throw it in June? It is a wedding movie.

  10. Catherine & Cameron work together for first time

    Net, I got a Google message that was supposedly a press release from Hallmark about the summer movies. It didn't mention "A Sweet Taste Of Love". Do you have any further info on that movie?

    1. Thank you for sharing this information, Joyce. I do know when this release went out it originally said FOUR Summer Nights movies, but clearly there are five movies in the release; therefore, I changed the press release title to FIVE ORIGINAL MOVIE PREMIERES on my posting here. Others shared this same release without changing the title, so it still said four.

      Anyway, I would love to see the link you saw, if you still have it.

      Blessings on your day! Net

    2. Sweet Taste of Love is filming next week, so unless Hallmark is moving it to a different themed event, it is still happening. It was not part of the original press materials for Summer Nights, but was added in later (as is often the case with Hallmark).

      Pretty sure the "Four" reference is outdated information.

  13. Net, I see you've added Autumn Reeser's name to the movie Season for Love with dreamy Marc Blucas! I'm so happy! I love them both!

    1. Oh, Yes! Autumn Reeser ("A Bramble House Christmas," "A Country Wedding") is Marc's co-star in this new movie! Autumn shared this news on Instagram. I think Marc & Autumn will make a very sweet, fun couple! Come on Summer Nights!!! :)
