Autumn Reeser (“Love on the Menu,” “The Arrangement”) and Brennan Elliott (“Crossword Mysteries: A Puzzle to Die For,” “UnREAL”) star in “All Summer Long” a new, original movie premiering Saturday, August 24 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Hallmark Channel as part of the network’s annual “Summer Nights” event.
About The Movie:
Seattle lawyer Tia (Reeser) goes to San Francisco to see the Yellowfin, a vintage yacht her aunt and uncle turned into a dinner cruiser. A capable sailor, Tia agrees to captain the boat for the summer, but she’s taken aback to learn her ex-boyfriend Jake (Elliott) is the chef. Still hurt over how he abruptly ended their relationship years ago, Tia is determined not to let Jake’s presence disrupt her summer. Finally, the evening comes for the Yellowfin to set out on her maiden voyage, and soon the guests are having a great time, until suddenly the engine starts grinding. When the lights die, Tia radios for an emergency tugboat, and critics onboard give the Yellowfin less than stellar reviews. Happily, an Admiral still books the boat for his retirement party and the night before, Tia and Jake take the skiff out to view a meteor shower. Docking hours later, they hear Tia’s messages, telling her she’s made partner. Though Jake congratulates her he’s upset, having hoped she’d stay on as captain and let their romance begin anew. Convinced Tia will be leaving sailing and him in her wake, Jake gives her the cold shoulder. But later, he sees Tia writing something on a paper wish lantern and sending it into the night sky, unaware that if her wish comes true he’ll be in for a big surprise.
