April showers have brought May filming signs in Agassiz-Harrison.
From May 27 to June 8, film crews and actors with Willow Resort Productions will be filming in Harrison Hot Springs, working on the upcoming Hallmark TV movie “The Willows.”
Filming will primarily take place at Harrison Hot Springs Resort, along Esplanade Avenue and Hot Springs Road. Aside from lights making the area look much brighter than usual at times, the production company expects minimal disruption to the neighbourhood. Filming will be on the grounds or inside the resort each day from May 27 to June 7.
Director Jessica Harmon has returned to Harrison Hot Springs for the second year in a row; she directed “My Best Friend’s Bouquet,” which filmed in the Agassiz-Harrison area last summer, which was then under the working title of “Neverbrides.” “My Best Friend’s Bouquet” filmed along Esplanade Avenue and Naismith Avenue, at Muddy Waters Cafe, and at the Fraser River Lodge in Agassiz. Harmon has dozens of acting credits to her name, including “The 100,” iZombie” and “Supernatural.”
At this time, no plot or cast details are publicly available for “The Willows.”
