PSYCH-Os Get Eighth Season of Filming in Vancouver – Updated

Psych-os have some news to celebrate. Their show is renewed for an eighth season [of ten episodes], taking some of the sting out of the looooonnng wait for the seventh season to start on USA Network. Psych premieres on Feburary 27th next year, almost four months after the show wrapped 121 days  of filming in Vancouver and ten months after [...]

What a day. Fringe filmed sequences with Anna Torv’s Olivia Dunham, Joshua Jackson’s Peter Bishop , John Noble’s Walter Bishop, Blair Brown’s Nina Sharp and a mysterious boy yesterday in five different downtown Vancouver locations for the tenth episode of the final season. Crew dressed each location as the future Observer-occupied world of 2036 using a prop [...]

SHOOT: Happy Halloween PSYCH-Os. James Roday & Dule Hill Film in the North Vancouver Rain

Here’s the Blueberry and James Roday’s Shawn Spencer and Dule Hill’s Burton “Gus” Guster filming inside it in North Vancouver rain this Halloween day. Psych wraps filming of its seventh season tomorrow. So I was lucky to see the Blueberry scenes and then Shawn and Gus grabbing a whole mess of hot dogs from Santa Barbara’s Footlong and Fancy Free truck [...]

SHOOT: SUPERNATURAL’s Dean, His Purgatory Pal & the Impala Film at Steveston’s Britannia Shipyards for 8×09

After filming some interior scenes at the Britannia Heritage Shipyards Building in Steveston south of Vancouver yesterday, Supernatural crew set up for the night shoot: a big exterior scene of Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) driving the Impala to this building now re-named the Lefevre Shipyard where he meets up with his Purgatory pal (Ty Olsson) carrying [...]

SHOOT: PSYCH’s Hit-and-Run Stunt Outside the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Vancouver

Uh-oh. Barry Bostwick of Rocky Horror Picture Show fame might not survive TV series Psych’s 2-hour musical episode. He’s cast as the owner of a ritzy Santa Barbara theatre, probably played by the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Vancouver, where Psych is filming today and tomorrow. This afternoon Psych filmed Bostwick’s stunt double stumbling from the alley by [...]

Sam & Dean & Cas? Supernatural’s New Demon-Hunting Trio in Downtown Vancouver for Ep. 8×08

Whatever happened to Castiel in Purgatory, he didn’t look so cuckoo-bananas last night in downtown Vancouver filming a scene for episode eight of the eighth season with his BFFs Sam & Dean. The scene itself was pretty simple: the trio get out of the Impala and walk over to a crime scene at the Lumbermens Building on [...]

SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME’s Captain Hook and his Pirate Ship in Steveston for 2×09 – Updated

That wasn’t Captain Jack Sparrow commanding the Tall Ship Lady Washington in the waters off Steveston yesterday, although Captain Jack did commandeer this exact ship in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie when it was known as the HMS Interceptor, the fastest ship in the Caribbean. Nope. That was Once Upon a Time’s Captain Hook (Colin [...]

CULT’s Robert Knepper & Alona Tal Film the Show-Within-A-Show at the Vancouver Art Gallery for 1×07

Updated April 10, 2013 – This was the last episode of Cult aired by The CW before it cancelled the show. Cult filmed scenes of Cult — its show-within-a-show — today at the Vancouver Art Gallery, with Robert Knepper (Prison Break)’s cult leader speaking about a proposed youth centre while Alona Tal’s police officer opens the trunk of [...]

Kristin Lehman as Vancouver Detective Angie Flynn Filming at the Olympic Village for CTV’s MOTIVE – Updated

If I hadn’t heard that Motive cast Kristin Lehman as divorced, single mother Angie [Flynn], a “feisty female Vancouver detective” solving murders in the midseason 13-episode CTV series, I might not have recognized her today in Olympic Plaza at The Village on False Creek. There’s very little of “Lady Eaton”, as her political campaign consultant Gwen Eaton on The [...]

SHOOT: Mamie Gummer of EMILY OWENS M.D. Filming at University of British Columbia

It’s been almost six months since I saw Emily Owens M.D. film scenes for its pilot at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre of its star Mamie Gummer (Meryl Streep’s daughter) walking in and out the front doors as Emily, a social nerd and surgical intern who finds life at Denver Memorial Hospital a lot like [...]

SHOOT: ROGUE’s Marton Csokas Films at Bentall 5 Tower in Downtown Vancouver

DirecTV’s Rogue has been tough to find filming on location in Vancouver, so it was a pleasant surprise to spot them out in the open on Saturday afternoon at the Bentall 5 tower downtown dressed as Trade Investments. Production has been “hush hush”, one of their productions guys told me last week out at Deer Lake. No kidding. All [...]
