The ABC hit TV series Once Upon A Time has chosen the Osoyoos area as one of its locations for season two. The production will be in the area shooting starting August.
Jon Summerland, Okanagan Film Commissioner, commented, “It is great for the Okanagan to be chosen as a location by a high profile series like Once Upon A Time, and it will also be great for the region to get the international exposure from the reach of the viewer audiences.”
Once Upon A Time is a story that centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of Fairy Tales just may be real. At its core it is a story about hope. Co-Creators/Executive Producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are two of the master storytellers behind Lost and Tron: Legacy.
The series stars Ginnifer Goodwin (“Big Love”), Jennifer Morrison (“House”), Robert Carlyle (“Trainspotting,” “SGU: Stargate Universe”), Lana Parrilla (“Boomtown,” “Spin City”), Josh Dallas (“Thor”), Jared Gilmore (“Mad Men”), Emilie de Ravin (“Lost”) and Meghan Ory (“Vampire High”).
This spring the Okanagan Film Commission has brought several productions to the Okanagan including A Mother’s Nightmare, SAADI WAKHRI HAI SHAAN, and A Stanley Cup History Film which is currently shooting in Penticton. Jon adds, “Productions are becoming aware of the stunning scenery we have to offer in the Okanagan, and when we have a studio they will also be able to use and collect tax credits, it will be a win win!”
