Starring Ashley Williams (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Sister Swap: A Hometown Holiday”), Ryan Paevey (“General Hospital,” “Christmas at the Plaza”) and Mary-Margaret Humes (“Dawson’s Creek,” “A Valentine’s Match”), production has begun on “Two Tickets to Paradise,” a new original movie which will air as part of Hallmark Channel’s annual “Summer Nights” programming event. The movie is being shot on location at the iconic Royal Hawaiian Resort on the island of Oahu in Hawaii and follows two strangers who meet on what feels like the worst day of their lives.
In “Two Tickets to Paradise,” Williams plays Hannah Holt and Paevey is Josh Wyatt. After they’ve both just been stood up at the altar, chance would have it where they’re sitting next to each other in a park and their encounter leads to a much-needed morale boost as they commit to taking their respective honeymoon vacations by turning lemons into lemonade. Soon after they embark, they realize they have landed at the same honeymoon resort and keep crossing paths in a tropical paradise. Later, Josh introduces Hannah to his friend from the past, Alice (Humes), who lives on the island and shares her wisdom with the heartbroken duo. Seeing the futility of fighting fate, Hannah and Josh eventually join forces and help learn from one other to enjoy their vacations.
The movie is being executive produced by Jason Sallee with Dustin Rikert directing from a script by Tracy Andreen and Kevin Taft.
An airdate for the movie has not been announced.
