TV Shows

April showers bring lots of umbrellas and in-studio filming! Last month 4 pilot episodes for new TV shows wrapped up filming in Vancouver with the hopes of being green lit to a silver screen near you. Ideally, they all get picked up and choose Hollywood North as their production home! They include two for NBC: A Million Little Things and In Between Lives; and two for The CW: Dead Inside and The End of the World As We Know It.

In addition, the popular show shot some scenes in Ladner Village.
