I unexpectedly ran into a crew filming the CW TV series Life UneXpected this morning between Ontario and Quebec Street while biking to work along 10th Avenue.
The show, now in its second season, follows the journey of teenaged Lux (Britt Robertson) who decides to find her birth parents after growing up in the foster care system.
"This comedy drama isn’t breaking new ground, but its tale of accidental parents and a teenager in search for a family is a perfect fit for Sunday evenings," wrote Lewis Bazley in Metro News.
Although the show is set in Portland, Oregon, Vancouver (surprise, surprise) is the location for most of the filming. Sutherland Secondary School in North Vancouver and H.J. Cambie Secondary School are transformed into Westemonte High. The show's Open Bar can be found on Granville Island.
We can expect to see many more of the familiar film trailers in Vancouver this winter. January and February will be busier than usual, I was told. The next installment of the Twilight series and Mission Impossible 4 are both slated for production in our city.
This is good news for those hoping to get their foot in the door with a job as a production assistant. There's a major shortage in the city, said a PA working on the Life UneXpected set. So if you can stand the seventeen hour work days, send in your resume.
