On August 15, the Hallmark Channel movie Wedding Every Weekend will debut at 9 PM. Nate and Brooke (Kimberly Sustad and Paul Campbell) are going to the same four weddings, four weekends in a row. To avoid set-ups, they go together as “wedding buddies.” But what starts as a friendship soon becomes deeper.

The UPtv movie Love on the Vines will also debut on August 15 at 7 PM. When Diana (Margo Harshman) inherits half her uncle’s vineyard, she is surprised to find a rule requiring her to work the land with new co-owner Seth (Steve Talley) for three weeks, or risk losing the land. The cast includes Jack Wagner and Catherine Mary Stewart.

Lastly, the new HBO series Lovecraft Country will debut on August 16 at 9 PM. Based on the novel of the same name by Matt Ruff, the ten-episode series follows Atticus Black (Jonathan Majors) as he journeys with his childhood friend Letitia (Jurnee Smollett-Bell) and his uncle George (Courtney B. Vance) on a road trip from Chicago across 1950s Jim Crow America in search of his missing father Montrose (Michael Kenneth Williams). Their search-and-rescue turns into a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and monstrous creatures that could be ripped from an H.P. Lovecraft paperback. The cast includes Aunjanue Ellis, Jamie Chung, Erica Tazel and Tony Goldwyn.
