Catherine Bell and Cameron Mathison Begin Production in Fiji on Hallmark Channel's A SUMMER TO REMEMBER (WT)
Production has begun on Hallmark Channel's "A Summer to Remember" (wt), a new, original movie starring Catherine Bell ("Good Witch," "Army Wives") and Cameron Mathison ("At Home in Mitford," "Murder, She Baked: Just Desserts"). Shooting on location in Fiji, the movie is set to premiere during the network's upcoming, annual "Summer Nights" programming event that celebrates the fun of the season.
"Catherine Bell and Cameron Mathison are fan favorites and we're thrilled to pair them together for the first time," said Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming & Network Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks. "We know they will light up the screen with their performances and the stunning Fiji landscape will be the perfect backdrop for this summertime escape for our viewers."
Jessica Tucker (Bell), a widow and successful doctor, is trying to juggle work and family when she learns she's up for the top job at the hospital. It's a great career move but means even more time away from her daughter Ava (Samantha MacGillivray) and would derail her plans to open a PRIVATE PRACTICE that offers more work-life balance. Jessica books a stay at a resort in Fiji with cute bungalows and horseback riding on the beach so she and Ava can disconnect and have some mother-daughter bonding time. Complicating matters is fellow resort guest Trevor (Paul O'Brien, "Neighbours"), a dashing surgeon who takes an immediate interest in Jessica. During her stay she also strikes up a friendship with Will (Mathison), the charming owner of the resort. As Jessica and Will spend more time together, she begins to relax and starts to wonder if this island paradise can give her the life - and love - she's always hoped for.
"A Summer to Remember" (wt) is a Cartel production. Stan Spry and Eric Woods are executive producers, Anthony Fankhuaser is co-executive producer and Lincoln Lageson serves as producer. Martin Wood directs from a script by Sheryl Anderson and Erinne Dobson.
