But this isn’t one of those weeks.

In fact, this week’s collection of screen productions wildly runs the gamut from a mystery-drama to a martial-arts action blockbuster to a musical fantasy dramedy TV series (now there’s something you don’t hear every day).

Filming in Vancouver: Hilary Swank, When Calls the Heart, The 100, and more

Hilary Swank will star in the TV series Away.

Yes, the formidable sitter of babies and children is getting a lot of attention in screen projects as of late, with a new Netflix movie starting production this week.

Meanwhile, three TV series start up this week.

One is a sci-fi drama starring a two-time Oscar winner and embarking upon its first season.

Another is also a sci-fi drama, but this one is the polar opposite: it’s starting in on its final season.
