BARRY WATSON AND MIA KIRSHNER ARE STAR-CROSSED LOVERS WHO GET A SECOND CHANCE AT A FIRST KISS AS THEY RALLY TO SAVE THEIR CHILDHOOD RETREAT IN "KISS AT PINE LAKE," A HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE WORLD PREMIERE MAY 6

Bill Engvall, Matty Finochio and Victoria Bidewell Co-Star

Barry Watson ("Samantha Who?") and Mia Kirshner ("The Vampire Diaries") star in a summer romance - fifteen years in the making - as star-crossed lovers who finally share that very special first kiss as they unite to save their childhood camp, in "Kiss At Pine Lake," a Hallmark Channel Original Movie World Premiere Sunday, May 6 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Watson and Kirshner are joined by Bill Engvall ("The Bill Engvall Show"), Matty Finochio ("Sanctuary") and Victoria Bidewell ("Fringe").

On the last day of camp, fifteen year old Luke Garvey and Zoe McDowell are about to share their first kiss, when they are interrupted by Zoe's dad (Engvall). Now, fifteen years later, destiny is about to come calling. Luke (Watson) is now a philanthropic entrepreneur, who recently purchased his uncle's Camp Pine Lake for sentimental reasons, only to find out the camp may get shut down for safety code violations; and Zoe (Kirshner) is the point person in her upscale development firm assigned to convince the new camp owner, who prefers to remain anonymous, to sell his land. As she prepares to head back to camp, Zoe confesses to her best friend Erica (Bidewell) she is sad to hear Camp Pine Lake is rundown and she thinks often of Luke, her teenage crush.

When Zoe arrives, she is stunned to learn that Luke is the new owner. This changes everything for Zoe when she realizes Luke isn't interested in making a profit, he wants it to stay open. But feeling cornered by her boss, Zoe agrees to use her friendship with Luke to their advantage. As the two get reacquainted, Zoe feigns support and Luke misunderstands, thinking she is there as an investor. But as the conversation drifts to their teenage years, Zoe gets upset with Luke, as too many memories come back and she runs away, dropping her cell phone. With time running out and only two weeks to bring the camp up to code, Tommy (Finochio), Luke's right-hand man and accountant suggests selling to a developer, who Luke immediately recognizes as the logo on Zoe's cell phone. Luke is disgusted with Tommy for going behind his back and he feels betrayed by Zoe. Zoe apologizes for not being truthful about the development deal and asks for a second chance and for their "first" kiss. As they rekindle an old flame,

Zoe agrees to help Luke save their childhood retreat.

"Kiss at Pine Lake" is a Pine Road Production. Thomas Thayer and Michael M. Scott are the executive producers. Harvey Kahn is the producer. Michael M. Scott also directed from a script by David Golden.
