Filming for an ABC T.V. show will continue past midnight tonight in Vancouver, states a resident notification letter. 

The third season of A Million Little Things--a show about a group of friends who become closer after one of them dies--is set to premiere on ABC in a matter of weeks. 

Production company Stage 49 Ltd. informed residents of the Gastown area in a handout that filming will take place on Nov. 6 - 7 in the early and late hours of the day.

The letter states that the crew will be on set in the Ironworks Studio at 235 Alexander Street as well as outside on the 100 block of Alexander Street.

Scenes call for simple dialogue, a drive-up/away, and will include parked picture cars along both sides of the 100 block of Alexander Street.

Vancouver Police will be onsite to help with a temporary road closure of the 100 block of Alexander Street--from Columbia Street to the alley east. However, the notice states that a section of the 100 block of Alexander Street between the alley and Main Street will remain accessible via intermittent traffic control.

The production company anticipates the hours of nighttime filming will be from approximately 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Earlier this week in Vancouver film

Vancouverites took to Twitter this week to share images of the film set for The Mysterious Benedict Society in Gastown, as well as to share information about upcoming filming times and locations. 

The set called for "background actors in costume" as well as picture décor in the alleyway south of the 300 block of Water Street; several old-fashioned cars lined the streets of Gastown.

November 2019 in Vancouver Film

On Nov.1, 2019, the City of Vancouver warned residents that there would be a film shoot with highly visible graphic content in Gastown.

The shoot, which involved multiple mock dead bodies and even a mock dead police horse, transformed the city streets into a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Based on the horror novel The Stand by Stephen King, the set design for the TV series “Radio Nowhere” called for a great deal of disturbing imagery, dialogue and noise.

The set for the Warner Brothers T.V. series “Batwoman” also called for some high-action content, including the use of exposed weapons, a van that crashed into a motorcycle, and atmospheric smoke.
