Ali Larter

We may be coming close to the end of the year and the holiday season, which may mean a lot of productions are either going to be calling it a wrap or going on hiatus soon.

But in the never-ending flow of Vancouver’s screen scene, a couple of new shows are actually starting up this week.

In fact, two new series—a supernatural horror-revenge thriller set in 1990s Los Angeles and a sci-fi mystery about an alien pretending to be a human—are just getting started.

Meanwhile, a number of Hollywood and Canadian stars are finishing up a feature thriller elsewhere in B.C.

Here’s a quick look at the comings and goings of screen productions around town and the province.
