The Hallmark movie Hidden Gems will debut as part of the network’s Summer Nights movie lineup.
Starring Hunter King and Beau Mirchoff, the romantic comedy was filmed entirely on location in Honolulu, Hawaii. King stars as Addie, the maid of honor in her sister’s destination wedding. During a paddleboard yoga session, Addie loses an heirloom ring that belonged to her grandmother when it slips off her finger and sinks to the ocean floor.
Hysterical, Addie becomes determined to get the ring back. She hires a dive instructor (played by Mirchoff) to look for it but insists on coming along. At first, they don’t get along, but as they spend more time together, they develop feelings for each other.

In a recent interview, King said she had a blast working in Hawaii.
“My second day there I was driving to a wardrobe fitting and I missed my freeway exit and suddenly there wouldn’t be an exit for 11 miles,” she said. “So for 11 miles I was driving through the mountains surrounded by jungle and I just started laughing. It didn’t even feel real! I’ve never been lost in a more beautiful place and I was just feeling so grateful and giddy to be lucky enough to be where I was. But having family and my best friends come visit me was definitely a major highlight for me.”
She has plenty of advice for people who want to visit.
“I would definitely recommend spending a day at the North Shore,” she said. “There’s so much to do there between going to the beach and watching all the surfers to visiting the cute little shops and having shaved ice (that’s a must). There’s also this cute little outdoor cafe nearby called Farm To Barn that has the BEST bagels. Not to mention all the hikes that Oahu has to offer. Can’t go wrong with any of them!”
