The Hallmark movie Caribbean Summer will premiere as part of the network’s Summer Nights lineup. Starring Heather Hemmens and Ser’Darius Blain, the romantic comedy was shot on location in Belize.
“Vacation, islands, love!” wrote Heather Hemmens in an Instagram post promoting the movie. “What a dream it was to make this movie! So excited for you to see #CaribbeanSummer premiering June 11 at 8pm/7c! On @hallmarkchannel.”
The Hallmark movie Caribbean Summer
Heather Hemmens stars as Jude, a stressed-out TV producer who is sent on a mandated vacation after making an on-air gaffe. At first, she finds it hard to relax, but that all changes when she meets a handsome stranger. Unfortunately, she finds out something about the stranger (played by Ser’Darius Blain), which would prove a major scoop. Jade must decide whether to enjoy her vacation or break one of the biggest stories of her career.
