Summer sweethearts are reunited in new Hallmark movie set in the Outer Banks
Holland Roden and Corey Cott get a second chance at summer love in the new Hallmark movie Making Waves. The movie, which takes place on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, will premiere as part of Hallmark’s Summer Nights lineup.
“Love is in the air and music fills their hearts,” reads a Hallmark Instagram post promoting the movie. “Join Amelia @hollandroden and Will @NapOnACott on their magical journey in #MakingWaves.”
New Hallmark movie
In the film, Holland Roden plays a music executive named Amelia. When she gets a tip that an elusive band will be playing at a North Carolina festival, she heads there hoping to beat out the competition and sign the group with her label.
But when she arrives, she is shocked to find out that she knows the lead singer, Will (played by Corey Cott). It turns out that they had a summer romance years before.
While putting aside her personal feelings, Amelia focuses on getting Will to sign with her label. But it soon becomes clear that her feelings are getting in the way of her mission.
About the cast
Holland Roden got her start on the MTV drama Teen Wolf. From 2011 to 2017, she starred as Lydia Martin in the series. She went on to have roles in Lore, MacGyver, and Mayans MC.
In 2022, she starred in the Hallmark movie Time For Hime to Come Home For Christmas alongside Tyler Hynes.
In an interview to promote that movie, Roden talked about how exciting it was to be joining the Hallmark family.
“So I’m excited to be hopefully welcomed into another family and just feel that warmth because there’s not, all shows do have that warmth, and not all networks have that warmth, so it’s a rarity to experience it once, let alone twice,” she told TV Fanatic. “So I’m just nervous and excited to see how that reception will go. But it should be fun.”
Corey Cott studied at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn. He has appeared on Broadway, playing Donny in Bandstand and Tony in West Side Story.
He has appeared on the TV shows Madam Secretary, Law and Order, Law and Order: SVU, The Equalizer, and Chicago Med. In 2022, he co-starred with Stacey Farber in the Hallmark movie Butlers in Love.
Making Waves will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Saturday, August 5 at 8/7c.
