RETREAT TO PARADISE,
US CABLE TELEVISION PREMIERE, GREAT AMERICAN FAMILY, AUGUST 20
Movie Kicks Off New Premieres Every Saturday Night
NEW YORK, NY – July 14, 2022 – Great American Family, America’s family-friendly destination for holiday movies and seasonal rom coms, today announced Melanie Stone (Little Women, Cupid for Christmas), Casey Elliott (An Hour Behind, Out of Liberty) and Brian Krause (The Closer, Charmed) star in Retreat to Paradise, a US Cable Television Premiere airing on the network, Saturday, August 20 at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT. Retreat to Paradise is the first film in Great American Family’s NEW MOVIE SATURDAY NIGHTS program event, premiering all new movies every Saturday night beginning August 20 through October 21. Great American Family previously announced the network’s highly anticipated holiday extravaganza, Great American Christmas, returns October 28 with all-new original Christmas movies and holiday content 24/7.
In Retreat to Paradise, Ellie Vaughn (Stone) tends to cantankerous and injured international tennis star Jordan Greer (Elliott) as he heals from a potentially career-ending shoulder injury. Jordan’s fear of being in even more pain and his lack of motivation has Ellie desiring to leave him in his misery, though longtime coach Neal (Krause) is not ready to throw in the towel on the idea that Jordan will recover and return to the courts. Little by little, Jordan comes to realize Ellie is exactly who he needs in his life at this moment, and he hopes that she will feel the same way.
Retreat to Paradise is executive produced by Brian Brough, Steven A. Lee, and Brittany Wiscombe. The film is directed by Brian Brough from an original screenplay by Brittany Wiscombe.
