Hallmark Channel kicks off its annual Summer Nights film event on Saturday, June 5th at 9/8 a.m. with the first of four original films, You Had Me at Aloha.
Romantic comedy stars Pascale Hutton and Kavan Smith as Paige and Ben, two very different travel bloggers forced to work together on a TV show about Hawaii. Though they initially collide, they eventually learn how to work together and eventually find a romance in Aloha State.
“Hawaii is the perfect place to do a romantic comedy because it’s the most beautiful place in the world,” Hutton said in a Hallmark Channel preview. “We have the beaches, we have the jungle, we have waterfalls.”
“It couldn’t have been better anywhere else in the world,” said Smith.
The stars developed the project together.
“She said, ‘I want to be a travel blogger,'” said Smith. “And I said, ‘Great. I will be the exact opposite of everything you want to be in your character. “
Hutton and Smith can be seen regularly on the Hallmark Channel. The two play husband and wife Leland and Rosemary Coulter on When Calls the Heart, which has aired the network for eight seasons, with a ninth in the works. You also starred in the 2018 Hallmark film The Perfect Bride: Wedding Bells.
Fans were excited on social media that the two are working together outside of When Calls the Heart. On Facebook one wrote: “LOVE these two together. They have a special chemistry! They make a film come alive. “
