“We were intent on finding the perfect location – a place that could double for Maine, where the story is set, and one with an experienced crew base and proven track record that would work to fulfill our other requirements,” noted Tom Prince, Executive Vice President of Physical Production/Post of TWC-Dimension Television, which is producing the series in conjunction with Halifax-based Magic Rock Productions.
“We intend to see this series develop into a signature show for Spike, and after hearing the pitch for Nova Scotia, we felt confident that the look, feel and the overall attitude of the province were right for this project,” added Sharon Levy, Executive Vice President, Original Series, Spike.
The series will be shot mostly in Halifax with some additional shooting in the Windsor area. It will air on Spike in 2017.
