A new Hallmark movie starring Torrey DeVitto will premiere this weekend. Love is Greek to Me was filmed on location on the island of Santorini.
In an Instagram post from the set, DeVitto told fans how much she enjoyed filming in Greece.
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about this experience and the people I got to work with,” she wrote in the caption. “Can’t wait to share this project with you all! #LoveIsGreekToMe.”
New Hallmark movie
In Love is Greek to Me, DeVitto stars as Ilana, who accompanies her boyfriend, Mike (played by Yannis Tsimitselis), to Greece to attend his sister’s wedding.
To Ilana’s relief, Mike’s large Greek family welcomes her with open arms. Mike then surprises her by proposing at the same lighthouse where his father proposed to his mother.
His well-meaning mother, Athena (played by Marina Sirtis), gets so excited she goes overboard trying to plan the wedding. Ilana becomes overwhelmed by her mother-in-law’s attempts to find the perfect dress and book a church.
Ilana starts to wonder if she and Mike are meant to be together after all.
Love is Greek to Me is one of four new wedding-themed movies to premiere on Hallmark in June. The others include Wedding Season, starring Stephanie Bennett and Casey Deidrick; The Wedding Contract, Becca Tobin and Jake Epstein; Make Me a Match, starring Eva Bourne and Rekha Sharma.
Hallmark recently announced that four new movies will also premiere in July. (For a complete list, click here.)
