    Being off during the summer affords me the opportunity to enjoy some of my favorite programming.  This vacation, I am enjoying watching The Hallmark Channel and their all new “Summer Nights” programming happening all summer long!  

    Their latest movie, “Summer in the City“, premieres Saturday, August 13th at 9:00 PM / 8:00c. Throughout July and August, the Hallmark Channel will be releasing the original movies, Summer Villa, For Love and Honor, My Summer Prince, Managing Manhattan as well as the Kitten Summer Games, and the new original TV series, Chesapeake Shores.

    As a New Yorker, I can totally relate to the main character of “Summer in the City,” a small town woman with Midwestern charm.  It was a big culture shock for me to move to the Big Apple from a small town in Spain when I was eight years old.  There were so many new cultures, people, and experiences to become accustomed to.  She is given a big promotion managing a store in the city and tries to adopt a big city personality but it just leads to disastrous results.

    One of the most important things that every real New Yorker knows is that it is better to be true to who you really are than to pretend to be someone you are not.  Once she began to let her personality shine through and it allowed her to become successful professionally and in her love life. The movie stars Julianna Guill, Marc Bendavid, Vivica A. Fox and Marla Sokoloff.

    I enjoy Hallmark’s movies so much. I’m looking forward to seeing this for the storyline, but also because of Marla Sokoloff. I recognized her right away and have not seen her in anything in a long time.

  2. I’m excited to watch #SummerInTheCity because I don’t live anywhere near New York City so it gives me a sort of inside look at life in that city. I’ll enjoy watching her navigate the city and watching her find herself.

    Thank you!
