Residents of a Port Coquitlam neighbourhood have been advised that filming for the TV series "Radio Nowhere" will take place on Friday, Feb. 21.
Salvation Productions sent out Resident Notification letters on Valentines Day, warning neighbours and businesses of 2500 Shaughnessy Street and Leigh Square Place that crew and work trucks would move into the area around 7 a.m. Following that, the notice states that filming of exterior scenes will take place from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. RCMP will be onsite to assist with intermittent traffic conrol while filming is taking place. However, the notice assures that delays will not exceed three minutes.
From 3:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. on Saturday morning, filming will take place at Leigh Square in the band shell area. There will be some music playing as part of a festival scene.
Crew will also return to clean the area on Saturday and Sunday.
In November 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" callled for a great deal of disturbing imagery, dialogue and noise.
According to StephenKing.com, The Stand is about a deadly flu that wipes out most of the world’s population. The survivors must choose between following two people and, “The two factions prepare for a confrontation between the forces of good and evil.”
IMDb states that the 10-episode series is set to air in 2020 and stars Whoopi Goldberg, James Marsden, Jovan Adepo, and Amber Heard.
