Katherine Heigl

Well, despite all that snow last week, Vancouver’s screen scene is continuing on as best it can amid the wintry weather.

In this week’s roundup, we’ll take a look at a feature thriller that’s finishing up its time here.

There’s also a new TV drama series about a lifelong friendship between two women that’s put to the test.

And coming thrillers with women, a forthcoming TV series explores what happens when female teens suddenly wield great power.

So here’s a look at what’s happening on the streets of Hollywood North.

Katee Sackhoff stars in the sci-fi drama Another Life.

Now that TV and film productions in Vancouver have all settled back into their work groove after returning from holiday hiatuses, it’s time to look at what’s new and upcoming in the local screen scene.

This week, there’s a live-action and animation hybrid TV series, based upon a cartoonist’s life, that starts shooting today.

In a few weeks, there’s also a sci-fi drama, about a space mission launched to track down the origin of a strange alien object that came to Earth, that’ll be coming back for a second season.

Next month, there’ll be two new TV series that’ll be starting up—and they couldn’t be more different if they tried.

One is based upon a ‘90s sports comedy movie while the other is a thriller based upon a novel about a daughter whose life is radically changed after witnessing how her mother responds to an act of violence.

So with all of this on our plate, let’s haul out our crystal ball and take a look into the near-future to see what’s coming our way.

Greetings once again, screen believers.

Hope you all had—or are having—enjoyable holidays and may the merriment continue into the new year.

And you know what that means: lots of new projects and stars will be coming this way.

In this week’s roundup of what’s going on in the local screen scene, we’ve got one mammoth of a project coming here in the near future.

Filming in Vancouver: Christmas Chronicles, Batwoman, The Flash, Casey Affleck, and more

The last batch of TV series are going on holiday hiatuses. And many of them—rather fittingly—are superpowered and sci-fi-boosted so presumably they used their super endurance to continue on late into the season.

A feature film will be taking a breather for the wintry holidays.

Santa Claus will also allegedly take a break from filming so that he can do his seasonal duty.

Elsewhere in B.C., a Canadian film wrapped up filming in the Okanagan.

Here’s a quick look at what’s happening in the local screen screen as we head into the holidays.

Filming in Vancouver: Dave Franco, Bill Murray, When Calls the Heart, Virgin River, and Siren

Erin Krakow stars in the locally shot When Calls the Heart.

A lot of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror TV series tend to be filmed in Vancouver.

But as we approach the holiday season, this week’s roundup tends to turn to a lighter look at what life has to offer.

Mind you, there are some dark undertones among them all.

One project is about marine biologists trying to understand an unusual aquatic woman who has come ashore.

Another one involves a traditionally serious and sensitive subject—but it’s given a comedic treatment by an Oscar-winning director.

But there are also two romantic series that sound rather similar: both are adaptation of books, and both follow a woman from the bright lights of the big city to the warm hearts of small towns.

Yet, with annual festive preparations, is not appropriate to be discussing a few laughs, a few loves—and a few mermaids?

Okay, so maybe not that last one. But you get the idea. Hopefully.

See you after the jump.

Filming in Vancouver: Home Before Dark, Midnight Mass, and TV series to go on holiday hiatuses

Supernatural, shooting its last season, will be among the TV series going on break for the holiday season.

There aren’t any new productions getting started just before the holiday season.

But there are plenty on their way in 2020.

Two TV series that will be starting up in the new year, with one returning and another as a new addition to the local screen scene.

And even though we’re entering the season of gift-giving and renewal with visions of sugar plums and whatnot, these series delve into realms of the dark and mysterious.

Here’s a quick look at who and what’s coming to town—besides Santa Claus, of course.
