Erin Krakow (“When Calls the Heart”) and Ryan Paevey (“General Hospital”) star in “A Summer Romance” a new, original premiering Saturday, August 17 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Summer Nights” event.
About The Movie:
Samantha “Sam” Walker (Krakow), is the owner of her family’s picturesque ranch in Bighorn, Montana and facing the difficult decision of selling her land to wealthy developers or risk losing it in foreclosure. When high-powered New York real estate developer Richard Belmont (Paevey) flies his private jet to Bighorn and arrives at the ranch to convince her to sell, he gets far more than expected after the airport shuts down for repairs and he’s forced to live at the ranch with Sam, her foreman Buck (Kevin O’Grady, “Homegrown Christmas”) and his family.
Everyone’s got to earn their keep on the ranch, so “city slicker” Richard soon finds himself feeding horses, milking cows and doing general chores around the house, but he’s also taken with the incredibly scenery and slower pace of life. Impressed by both his rugged good looks and willingness to embrace the country lifestyle, Sam takes a liking to Richard and hopes he’ll see just how important the ranch is to her. Despite the budding romance that develops between them, the pressure on Richard from his colleagues to close the deal grows and threatens to undermine everything he’s come to love since arriving in Bighorn, especially when his company goes behind his back to force an agreement.
“A Summer Romance” is produced by Crown Media Productions, LLC. Vicki Sotheran and Greg Malcolm serve as producers. David Winning directed from a script by Robert Tate Miller.
